Experiential Education involves the use of hands-on exercises that engage multiple senses and learning styles.

For a fun example of what this looks like on a Dragons course, check out this "Metacognition" exercise in action on Dragons China: The Yangtze River summer program, subtitled, "Games to Visualize our Thinking" as facilitated by Zack Siddall and described by Tingting Xu...

Er Fo Temple is famous for its Chan Buddhist sculptures. Before leaving the temple, Zack organized a game with the intention of guiding students towards more awareness of their thinking and decision making processes – an important step before entering a mega city, like Chongqing, after a quiet and peaceful time at Er Fo Temple. The process of “sculpting each other” was a lot of fun for the group and helped them get to know each other even better as the journey continues. Hope you enjoy the video as much as we (instructors) enjoyed watching! – Tingting

Susie Rinehart is a past Dragons Director and treasured member of our community. We offer a standing ovation to this TedTalk introducing her powerful message and life story on the work of letting go of perfectionism...

Excerpted from the TedX website:

"Women have never been more successful. They have also never suffered more from anxiety and depression. Before the diagnosis of a rare tumor wrapped around Susie Rinehart's brainstem and vocal cords, she won several acclaimed ultramarathons at the Masters level. She was good at striving for goals and checking off achievements. Then she found out she was going to die young and without a voice. She wrote down how she wanted to move forward: "I choose joy over fear and brave over perfect." This is her uplifting story of losing, then finding her voice in all its power."

    [post_content] => Dragons partnered with Avenues: The World School to develop and run a Climate Change and Culture in Taiwan Program. They made a fantastic video of their course and time in Taiwan. Watch it below and definitely learn more about the program via this blog post. Here's an excerpt: 

"On a recent Global Journeys program, a group of 9th and 10th graders looked closely at how climate change and sustainability relate to culture in Taiwan. Their investigation took them around the island, from the metropolis of Taipei to the tiny coastal village of Dulan, from Buddhist monasteries to urban recycling centers, remote permaculture farms to bustling night markets. Most memorably, the students spent four nights at a homestay with families from the indigenous Atayal community—a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience the rhythms of the tribe’s daily life in the mountains (and pitch in on farm work) and learn how that way of life is being threatened by climate change."
