Travel as part of education

Education involves not only reading books and doing exercises, but also acquiring knowledge by practically doing something. In other words, practical experience is part of education. As travel adds value to our experience and knowledge base, it can safely be considered part of education.

In this connection it has to be said that traveling has a broad purpose: gaining experience and enjoyment. But it must be emphasized that in both cases, knowledge comes from traveling.

As far as the relationship between education and travel is concerned, traveling should be made compulsory for students. When it is done, it is part of education. However, it has several advantages. These are listed below.

First, what we learn from textbooks must be checked against reality. Once this is done, the knowledge earned from the books will become practicable. And if this is to be achieved, there must be sufficient opportunities for travel, such as a training trip or excursion.

Secondly there are some subjects that cannot be learned or learned from textbooks. This category includes geography, history and some disciplines. In order to have perfect knowledge in these subjects, students must be inspired and patronized by study visits.

Thirdly: uneducated pleasure usually becomes prosaic and ineffective. Therefore, the most effective educational processes with built-in recreational facilities.

The other side of travel under no circumstances should it be overlooked as part of education. This means that it covers the question – is it really feasible for students? Unfortunately, in most cases, the answer is no. If, for example, traveling is an important part of education, it is certainly a heavy burden on the guardians of poor countries. The consequence is that only a minority of students can take advantage of the opportunity to acquire perfect knowledge on related topics, while most of them do not. This is a major problem for both the decision maker and the education system as a whole.

But this is not the case such a problem is completely unsolvable. To enhance extra-curricular activities such as travel, it should be programmed within a limited budget. Educational institutions and the government should also provide students with reasonable financial assistance in this regard.

Therefore it is recommended that all educational institutions around the world ensure that travel is included in the overall education program, ensuring that most students are actively involved.
