Place Based Education

Place-Based Education (PBE) is anytime, anywhere learning that leverages the power of place, and not just the power of technology, to personalize learning. We've recently released a new book, The Power of Place: Authentic Learning Through Place-Based Education, which focuses on how PBE is an immersive learning experience that “places students in local heritage, cultures, landscapes, opportunities and experiences, using these as a foundation for the study of language arts, mathematics, social studies, science and other subjects across the curriculum.” PBE is also a natural complement to Personalized and Project-Based Learning, providing a way to connect these efforts to students' local environment for engaging learning that leads to more engaged citizens.
