Unschooling Paradise is encouraging unschooler road trips as a way to learn outside of the traditional school environment. The unschooling philosophy is based around helping children become more independent and curious about the world that surrounds them by providing educational opportunities at all times. An unschooler road trip offers a wide variety of opportunities for kids to learn while having fun with their family. Some suggestions including: visiting science centers, art galleries and zoos. Children can also learn on the road with an iPad. The iPad is ideal for researching new study topics, taking online tutorials to teach crafts and for playing educational games and watching documentaries. This makes learning accessible and fun while still allowing children to play and choose their own topics of interest.
Unschooling Paradise helps parents to assist their children with learning course material in interesting and exciting ways such as baking, trips and turning every family outing into a learning experience. The unschooler method also involves learning practical skills that will assist young adults with achieving independence after they graduate school. Many parents began the homeschooling lifestyle due to their own dissatisfaction with the results they achieved from their own public school education and found that after completing high school they do not know basic life skills such as budgeting, doing their taxes or cooking their own food. The traditional education system does not tell students how to take care of themselves outside of their academic studies. Unschooling Paradise has a holistic approach to homeschooling that teaches children skills on a variety of levels including academic and practical.
Children that are part of the unschooling program learn topics that interest them, become independent and mature more quickly than their peers. The iPad makes a great learning tool for any unschooler road trip, in addition to visiting landmarks, galleries and museums. Unschooling Paradise encourages parents that are interested in homeschooling to read tips in their blog and to read reviews on products that other children have reviewed positively.
