Leveraging the Power of Place: A New Commitment to Personalizing Learning
Liebtag, Emily
Childhood Education, v94 n2 p37-42 2018
Personalized learning offers instruction that matches students' learning preferences and specific interests. Taking innovative approaches to engaging with students' individual contexts and interests through place-based education can be particularly meaningful. Place-based education (PBE) is anytime, anywhere learning that leverages the power of place, and not just the power of technology, to personalize learning. PBE is learning that immerses students in local heritage, cultures, landscapes, and opportunities, using these experiences as a foundation for the study of language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, and other subjects across the curriculum. This article offers tips to educators on how to get started integrating place-based experiences into their curriculum on a small, yet comprehensive scale.
