Participants will learn what Place-Based Education is and to create moments of place-based learning for Pre-Service teachers. Participants will be able to take tangible ideas back to their schools and apply their ideas. Jessica will provide learners with concrete ideas grounded in research from the Teton Science Schools (https://www.tetonscience.org/) and the Rural Schools Collaborative (https://ruralschoolscollaborative.org/). The School of Education at University of Wisconsin Platteville is quickly becoming the leading example of placed-based education in teacher training and has become a pipeline of teachers in rural Wisconsin. Our model of placed-based education and wise-technology integration has become an excellent model.
We follow the work of the Teton Science Schools and the Rural Schools Collaborative and have grounded much of our work from this ASCD book, The Power of Place.
