Worldschooling / Roadschooling

This category covers what Worldschooling or Roadschooling is all about: what it really means, what it involves, the sacrifices, the joys, and how to start this incredible life adventure.

The world is your classroom! 

Worldschooling is an educational movement that understands that a child can receive no greater education than by experiencing and interacting with the world around them. This involves traveling together and using the journeys to enhance their child(ren)’s education and skills.

Every Worldschooling family is unique, but all share a desire to travel and to introduce their children holistically to the wider world around them by experiential learning to solidify their knowledge. 

Below are the websites, blogs, and pages of experienced Worldschoolers who can help you with many (many) different aspects of this way of travelling, teaching your children, and learning from the beautiful world around you. 

Enjoy your research!
