Abstract

As education has evolved from these Classical times, the interpretation and
use of learning outside of the classroom has taken many forms throughout the
history of educational philosophy and practice. In today’s era, outdoor learning
has received a surge of interest and research highlighting its benefits and
advocating its use in educational practice. In particular, many commentators
have claimed that the capability of outdoor teaching to educate children about
risk is unparalleled (Adams, 2001; Little, 2006; Coster and Gleeve, 2008). This
study explores this theory, and investigates whether Outdoor Learning
develops children’s perceptions of risk.
