School can inspire and engage. Classes can offer relevant learning experiences and students can develop the skills most valued by employers. Transformed schools exist today.
At New Tech Network, students are problem solvers and creators. They learn to collaborate and communicate. Through challenging, authentic projects, they learn to adapt and engage in the world around them.
New Tech Network (NTN) is a leading design partner for comprehensive school change. NTN works closely with districts and schools to create innovative learning environments. Through a proven school model, a project-based learning platform, and powerful professional development we coach schools toward lasting change and ongoing improvement.
NTN schools consistently outperform national comparison groups on measures of higher order thinking skills, high school graduation rates and college enrollment rates:
• Students grow 61% more in higher order thinking skills between freshman and senior years than comparison group
• Graduate at a rate 9% greater than the national average
• Enroll in college at a rate of 70%
• Persist in 4-year colleges at a rate of 92% and in 2-year colleges at a rate of 72%
The New Tech Model for school success is based on four design pillars:
Culture that Empowers
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
Teaching that Engages
Through project-based learning, students become problem-solvers
Technology that Enables
Through a technology-rich environment, teachers and students create, communicate, access information, and experience self-directed learning
Outcomes that Matter
New Tech Network learning outcomes measure collaboration, written and oral communication and the development of student responsibility for their own learning, or agency
