Abstract: Adventure has been incorporated into education in multiple ways throughout history. When blended with technology, it provides an opportune forum for scaffolding students and teachers alike through the process of inquiry. This paper offers an overview of how adventure has traditionally been employed in formal and informal education, discusses the differences between adventure education and adventure learning, shares research conducted on the role of adventure in the GoNorth! Adventure Learning Series, and advances suggestions for how adventure can be used most effectively in distance, online, and mobile learning. The researchers propose the user-driven adventure learning environment (UDALE) as one model that educators and designers might draw from in both formal and informal learning settings as a means to fuse adventure and technology in a pedagogically meaningful way.
