Learning with the Power of Place

Placed-Based Education (“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.
