    송완구 , Kim, Hyoung-gon | 2016, 40(2) | pp.201~214 | number of Cited : 3
    This study was conducted to understand the educational travel experiences of agricultural high school students who participated in an overseas education program via a qualitative research approach. For this purpose, 59 travel reports written by the students who participated in the overseas education programs were analyzed in accordance with the thematic analysis process. Four main themes emerged. These were (1) aspirations through social comparison, (2) introspective self-reflection, (3) changing perceptions about agriculture, and (4) positive projection of self as a farmer. The results show that the structure of educational tourism experiences can be better understood particularly in light of social learning theory and the concept of an aspirational reference group. Desirable changes for agricultural high school students through educational tourism can take place mostly by direct social interaction with reference groups(European agricultural high school students and farmers) who supposedly possess the relevant and aspired qualities.
