Seven reasons why every teacher should master active experiential learning

Active experiential holistic learning is the key to future-oriented education and to addressing current world challenges.

Everything that children learn needs to happen in real life - not only in course books, worksheets or on screen.

Future-oriented education is about nurturing life skills - creativity, collaboration, reasoning, bodily awareness, positive self-image, problem solving, relationship building and adaptability. These skills are nurtured through real-world experiences and through an authentic connection with the world around us. This can help our children succeed in the future - no matter the times and external circumstances.

Today’s educators can offer future-oriented education, providing that in their everyday practice they navigate towards active experiential holistic learning.

Here are seven reasons why active experiential learning is a key skillset for all teachers to focus on now:

1. Parents and educators may start to understand that passive academic-oriented learning is not enough to prepare children for the future in these uncertain times. 

2. Parents may become more conscious and more demanding as to how learning is offered, and may no longer wish for their children to be overwhelmed with worksheets, course books, and academic-based activities. They may expect educators to be able to use active experiential holistic learning much more often.

3. School leaders may look for teachers who can offer much more than lecture-based learning or pen and paper activities. They may want teachers who know how to use the most effective educational approaches in their everyday practice, and who know how to make learning exciting and meaningful. 

4. Very few educators on a global scale can effectively implement active experiential holistic learning on a daily basis. This means that when you master it, you will join the group of highly skilled and very sought-after educators of the Future. 

5. Once you master active experiential holistic learning, you can feel very confident about planning, delivering, and evaluating truly engaging learning experiences that are fully aligned with your national curriculum and the goals of future-oriented education. When you implement Active Experiential Learning in your school or early years setting correctly, your daily workload related to planning and delivering meaningful learning experiences can reduce significantly, and even put on autopilot. 

6. Educators of the future need to be able to use technology as well as any other tool to offer active experiential holistic learning effectively. 

7. Active experiential learning is not yet another trend. It's the ever-green and one of the most powerful educational approaches that will never go out of fashion. And because it's based on the Universal Laws of Natural Learning, it always accelerates children's learning - and this will never change. So, once you master active experiential holistic learning, you can be sure that your skills will stay with you forever, and that you will be able to offer high quality education, regardless of times and current trends.

This is exactly why Magdalena Matulewicz and Witold Matulewicz, founders of Natural Born Leaders, have designed ACTIVE LEARNING BOOSTER. It's a self-paced hands-on online training program for early years practitioners and primary teachers who are ready to offer future-oriented education based on the active experiential holistic learning approach that can work for every child and every educator!

Magdalena and Witold have been working with this approach for over 20 years - both in early years and primary education. They have trained lots of nurseries and schools where dedicated teachers successfully use active experiential holistic learning on a daily basis.

During the ACTIVE LEARNING BOOSTER training program, you will understand that active experiential learning is not about what you have or can buy but how you can use what is already available to fully support your children’s life-long learning and balanced development.

When you complete the program, you will be able to use any resources that are available to you locally, and use them to maximise experiential learning opportunities for all your children and students. You will become an empowered, self-reliant, and tool-independent educator of the future!

This means that regardless of your location and access to educational resources or funds, you will be able to offer Active Experiential Holistic Learning at the highest level.
