Beyond The Classroom: Real World Challenge

The ‘Beyond The Classroom: Real World Challenge Seminar,’ co-hosted by LC Myanmar Consulting Co., Ltd., took place on January 19, 2024. A total of 57 teachers from schools in Yangon actively participated in this event. The primary objective of the seminar is to empower students, who are primarily engaged in traditional classroom learning, to acquire essential life skills through hands-on experiences in real-world challenges.

This seminar is tailored for educators and school administrators who aim to enrich students’ life skills beyond traditional classroom learning. The primary audience includes teachers and other school personnel empowered to make decisions regarding student development initiatives and events.

Traditionally, individuals acquire life lessons mainly within the confines of a classroom. This mindset often persists, limiting the perception of learning to a formal, classroom setting. This seminar seeks to break away from this norm by offering concise training sessions where students can apply classroom knowledge through engaging outdoor activities connected to their environment. Participants will undergo mental strengthening exercises, fostering personal growth and maturity without the need for conventional study methods.


In these sessions, students will be exposed to a diverse range of experiences, addressing the fact that even students of the same age, sharing the same classroom, exhibit distinct personalities. The curriculum focuses on imparting essential skills such as effective communication, creative thinking, and teamwork through engaging activities. These skills will be honed through group challenges, allowing students to learn through hands-on experiences rather than traditional classroom instruction.

Recognizing that classroom-based teaching can be mundane and easily forgettable, the seminar advocates for a more experiential approach. Small, group-based challenges will serve as the cornerstone of the learning experience, encouraging participants to reflect on their achievements and setbacks. Through this reflective process, the lessons become truly effective and memorable, contributing significantly to the holistic development of students.
