Innovating K-12 schools
Re-imagining Teaching and Learning
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.
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.
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.
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.
