What makes New Tech different?
TEACHING THAT ENGAGES: Project- and Problem-Based Learning
A focus on authentic complex thinking and problem-solving. Project-based learning (PBL) requires contextual, creative, and shared learning. Students collaborate on meaningful projects that require critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration in order to answer challenging questions and solve authentic problems that are relevant to their interests and connected to our community.
CULTURE THAT EMPOWERS: Growth Mindset
School-wide culture of inclusion and belonging for adults and students. Each NTN partner school promotes a culture of trust, respect, and responsibility, encompassing student and professional culture. Students and teachers alike are connected to, engaged with, and challenged by their work.
TECHNOLOGY THAT ENABLES: Digital Literacy
Purposeful use of technology platforms supports collaboration and student-centered learning and ensures that grades are aligned to the deeper learning skills students will need in college and careers. Students and teachers create, communicate, access information, and experience self-directed learning.
OUTCOMES THAT MATTER: College and Career Readiness
Student outcomes that prepare all students for postsecondary success. New Tech Network learning outcomes measure collaboration, knowledge and thinking, written and oral communication, and the development of students’ responsibility for their own learning - called agency.
