Rex Ferguson-Baird has an idea on how to fix some of the issues that kids face in life and learning. As the Principal of Brooklands School, Rex believes that the solution is as simple as taking it outside. For this PechaKucha Night Winnipeg talk, Rex talks about the concept and application of the "outdoor school" and the benefits that kids have gained while learning from beyond the four walls of the classroom.

Rex's talk was recorded live at PechaKucha Night Winnipeg Vol. 35, on September 6, 2018, at the Park Theatre.

Closing the Outdoor Knowledge Gap

BY DAVID STEELE
@ VOL 6 ON NOV 01, 2018

For those who grow up in the outdoors, it comes easy. It is much easier to be a competent skiier, or climber, or adventurer if you come at it from an early age. Yet contrary to popular belief, David Steele shows that old dogs CAN learn new tricks. The great benefit to a person trying something new is people who have been on that path before themselves. David shows that life can be challangeing and exciting for all of us at all stages of the journey, no matter if you are a cohort, a mentor, or an up-and-comer.
