ATTENTION ALL TEACHERS AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT SPECIALISTS!
Share your knowledge and experience with other teachers across Australia. Active Education Magazine, Australia’s leading Outdoor Education and Recreation publication for the education sector, is currently compiling its editorial content for the next twelve months. We are looking for teachers who are willing to share their knowledge and experience with likeminded education professionals across Australia.
We are seeking articles and case studies outlining the types of projects and experiences you have undertaken with students over the last twelve months. These projects should involve outdoor recreation and physical education training in some way. For example, you may wish to discuss a particular activity program that you have developed which has been successful in getting children out and active.
We are also seeking contributions from professionals who are not necessarily teachers, but who work with children in developing physical and social skills and confidence.
