World schooling is using the world as your classroom. Whether we are exploring Australia, or in the centre of a pyramid in Egypt, we believe in world schooling.
When traveling, it is often good to find new sites to keep your child stimulated.

Remember that services that make it simple for students to search for all the tutors within their local area are worth checking out and are a useful resource especially Tutoo.com

What is World Schooling?
World schooling is when you use the environment around you as the classroom. For example, if you are in the Amazon jungle you learn what you see – pink dolphins might be a good example for that. World schooling also means you often use locals as the teachers for your children too. A tour guide can also be a great tutor.
We use the world schooling technique as we travel the world and it has worked really well. Explorason has been to school for periods of our travel too, and they can both be used hand-in-hand.
Have a read through our website and discover many of the wonderful ways you can use world schooling. From making musical instruments out of beach driftwood in Hawaii to exploring the National Park and Marine reef of Kenya. There are so many ways.
A highlight for me will always be a wonderful guide we had in Morocco who sat in the ancient ruins with my son showing him what the first toilet ever looked like.
When world schooling techniques are applied, you can use local language, food, cooking, history, geography, learning flags, currency conversion and many more way to educate your child traveling.
