Innovating K-12 schools

Re-imagining Teaching and Learning


that engages

By engaging students through project-based learning, students become problem-solvers. Teachers design complex, authentic challenges that engage students, require them to demonstrate mastery of knowledge, and foster written and oral communication skills.


that empowers

By making learning relevant and creating a collaborative learning culture, students become connected to, engaged with, and challenged by their school, teachers and peers. Each school promotes a culture of trust, respect and responsibility.


that matter

Learning outcomes also measure collaboration, written and oral communication, and students’ responsibility for their own learning. Performance assessments measure the knowledge and thinking of students to help them become proficient in producing college-level work.


that enables

Through a technology-rich environment, teachers and students create, communicate, access information, and experience self-directed learning. Echo, NTN’s online learning platform, supports project-based learning and features an innovative gradebook.
