About New Tech Network
History and Growth of New Tech Network for more information.
New Tech schools use a different model of learning and teaching compared to traditional high school. Incorporating a culture of trust, respect, and responsibility, students learn to take ownership of their actions and their school experience. “Teachers” in New Tech are called facilitators; and they are there to guide and coach so the student has room to take control of his or her learning and become an active participant.
WHAT IS PROJECT-BASED LEARNING?
Project-based learning combines learning subject content with practicing 21st century skills. Students are given in-depth and real-life projects and while working in groups, the students conduct research, collaborate, and discover real-life solutions. In the process of discovery, students are learning critical thinking and organizational skills, leadership skills, time management, and work ethic and collaboration abilities. Most projects end with a presentation giving students the chance to share their real-life solutions with classmates. Vist Project-Based Learning for more information.
