Better together: rural schools and small towns

Tuesday evening’s #RuralEdChat was about Place-Based Learning. Guest “chatter” for the evening was Gary Funk, executive director of the Rural Schools Collaborative.
The Rural Schools Collaborative (@Rural_Schools for those on Twitter) is a new, multi-state nonprofit committed to the belief that rural schools and small towns get better together.


Since the chat was well-attended and likely, the transcript is lengthy. I’m going to curate excerpts to give a snapshot of what was said.

What is placed-based learning?

Is PBL implementation easier in rural schools?

What content can it be used with?

How does PBL fit with existing  programs?

Are your grants geographically limited?

The entire #RuralEdChat is archived here.
