Project Based Learning (PBL)

Project Based Learning (PBL) is an engaging educational approach where students at each grade level work in teams on long-term multidisciplinary projects that are structured around rich, real-world, and relevant research questions.
Project Based Learning (PBL) reinforces the Colorado Academic Standards at each grade level while also developing students' skills in investigation, collaboration, communication, time management, organization, and use of real-world technology.
Project-Based Learning (PBL) projects are the heart of the educational experience at Olander.  Every grade, K-5, builds their academic year around three or more engaging, multi-disciplinary projects. The PBL projects are generated to rigorously address Colorado Academic Standards, while incorporating student interests and questions.  The success tools of Habits of Mind are woven into all projects.
