“Having done is worth more than having read, having watched, or knowing how.”
I was thinking about experiential learning yesterday when the line above came to me. I think it will be our slogan for 2008.
We live in the era where information is everywhere. But we should never confuse familiarity with understanding or experience. Just about everyone who’s attended our programs in the last few years has seen some of the television shows on bushcraft and survival, as well as videos on youtube and other web sites. But reading books and watching videos isn’t doing it yourself. The goal of our courses is to get you to do it yourself, because that’s where the real learning takes place.
