We recently set up a Facebook and Twitter page to accumulate a vast amount of Learning Outside the Classroom research, news, free resources, locations, ideas and transport solutions to make implementing LOtC easier for everyone.
Below is just an example of some of the LOtC items that we have shared with our Facebook and Twitter followers thus far.
