What makes New Tech different?
TEACHING THAT ENGAGES: Project-Based Learning
In project-based learning classrooms, students become problem solvers.
CULTURE THAT EMPOWERS: Growth Mindset
By making learning relevant and creating a collaborative learning culture, students become connected to, engaged with, and challenged by their school, their teachers, and their peers.
TECHNOLOGY THAT ENABLES: Digital Literacy
In a technology-rich environment, teachers and students create, communicate, access information, and experience self-directed learning.
OUTCOMES THAT MATTER: College and Career Readiness
New Tech Network learning outcomes measure collaboration, written and oral communication, and the development of students’ responsibility for their own learning - called agency.
