Place Based Learning attempts to use the most effective developments in teaching and learning to tackle critical issues of sustainability and community development in the actual context that young people are growing-up.

Place-based learning encourages teachers and students to use the school site, the local community, and special places nearby as resources, turning communities into classrooms.

It immerses students in local heritage, culture, landscapes, opportunities, and experiences as a foundation for the study of language, arts, mathematics, social studies, science, and other subjects.

“Place-based pedagogies are needed so that the education of citizens might have some direct bearing on the well-being of the social and ecological places people actually inhabit.”
