Will Kaleidoscope continue to be a school that utilizes Project Based Learning?

  • While Kaleidoscope has been a school that has embraced the use of projects, Kaleidoscope has never actually been a school that officially uses the Project Based Learning model. The official Project Based Learning model is characterized by:

    • Extended work on a project (often multiple weeks or even months).
    • All students, or groups of students, working on projects that are unique to them. 
    • Students having a voice in project design process.  This means that they have a say in what they are going to create and how they are going to do it.

    Kaleidoscope believes it is important for teachers to utilize hands-on projects to encourage students to become problem solvers.
