Place-Based Education

Getting Smart has released three new resources on Place-Based Education.

The first guide and infographic, What is Placed Based Education and Why Does it Matter?, offers an overview of Place-Based Education including definitions, benefits and examples. It features diverse examples of Place-Based Education in practice submitted by educators all over the world.

The second guide, the Quick Start Guide to Implementing Place-Based Education, translates educator insights into an actionable guide for the implementation of Place-Based Education in classrooms and in communities. Actionable examples and tips are shared throughout to inform and inspire place-based opportunities across the curriculum.

Finally, to help build the capacity of teachers to implement Place-Based Education, Getting Smart created a new guide to Place-Based Professional Learning.
