Lin Lyu. (2022). Study tours in elementary school in Kunming and strategies for improvement. (Master’s independent study). Bangkok: Siam University.


In 2016, the Ministry of Education and 11 departments jointly issued the Opinions on Promoting Study Tours for Primary and Secondary Schools Study tours were officially incorporated into the education and teaching programs of primary and secondary schools, gradually entering the public eyes. In 2020, the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China and the State Council issued the Opinions on Comprehensively Strengthening Labor Education in Primary and Secondary Schools in the New Era (hereinafter referred to as “Opinions”). This accelerated the development of study tours in elementary school nationwide. Study tours break the traditional campus space and feature open space and inquiry leading to experiential learning for students, which is a new method of implementing quality education that plays an important role in enhancing students’ core literacy and comprehensive abilities. From an educational point of view, study tours make use of vast social resources to expand the content of school education and supplement the shortage of family education; study tours take experience as the core, making book knowledge more practical, inquisitive, social and applied; and study tours are conducive to students’ self-knowledge, understanding of the group, entering society, learning to learn and the development of their own abilities. Although study tours have been developed for six years, the implementation of study tours for elementary school in Kunming is still in the initial exploration stage, and most of the study tour products appear to be formal, emphasize travel over learning or learning over travel, overly pursuing market interests, and insufficient educational significance, among many other chaotic phenomena. Based on this, the problems in the implementation of study tours for elementary school in Kunming were studied. Then, proposed corresponding optimization countermeasures in order to effectively promote study tours for elementary school in Kunming to play their corresponding roles. This paper adopted a combination of quantitative and qualitative research methods. It focused on four aspects: the degree of awareness of study tours, the implementation of study course programs, the specialization of study instructors, and the evaluation system. The research used a mixture of quantitative and qualitative research methods, literature research to establish arguments, questionnaires and interviews to collect and analyze data on the implementation of study tour programs in Kunming city. The study was conducted to investigate the current situation of the implementation of study tours in elementary schools, and analyze the results of the specific situation of the implementation of study tours, analyze the problems based on the findings, and summarize and reflect on the improvement strategies applicable to the region, which can be used as a guide for better implementation of study tours in elementary schools in the region.
