At EF, we’re committed to helping as many students as possible see the world. Often, that process starts by helping educators and parents understand just how invaluable travel is to their students’ education, and why they should make these kinds of experiential learning opportunities a priority. That’s exactly what Dr. Carrie A. Olson, Melissa A. Torres, and Karina Marquez Gandara came to discuss at the most recent EF Global Education Symposium.
Together, the panel consisted of an educational travel researcher, the CEO of a professional association, and a former student traveler, respectively. They dove into research-backed qualitative and quantitative data around educational travel, as well as ways to make access to these kinds of experiences more equitable. By the end of their presentation, the in-audience crowd of educators and school administrators left fully inspired to show even more students the world.
