Place-based education helps students make the connection between their language study and their daily lives. This connection can increase both student motivation and proficiency. Place-based programs are an excellent option for helping students identify how language intersects with their lives outside of the classroom.

PEBLL, a curated database of place-based education experiences relevant to language learning, helps educators expand learning to happen outside of the classroom. PEBLL ensures that high-quality projects are easily accessible to language teachers from all over the world. Each project included in PEBLL is geo-tagged and categorized by language, level, and content area so that teachers can find existing programs and services for immediate classroom use or for adaption to their own local contexts.

PEBLL is a joint project between CASLS and the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (COERLL).
