Listen to Lead: How to Harness the Power of Our Students’ Voices

Important Announcement!

In response to the rapidly-evolving COVID-19 (Corona Virus) situation and in an abundance of caution, New Tech Network (NTN) has made the decision to postpone the NTN Leadership Summit scheduled for March 25-27, 2020 in Addison, Texas.

Consequently, we are rescheduling the NTN Leadership Summit to coincide with the New Tech Annual Conference (NTAC) in Detroit, MI this July.  The new dates for the NTN Leadership Summit are July 13-14, 2020. These dates are subject to revision as the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve.

Please look for updated communication and registration procedures in the coming weeks.

At New Tech Network, we believe that harnessing the power of student voices enables us to transform our schools into safe, supportive and inclusive learning environments. 

This year, for the first time, we are gathering NTN and non-NTN education leaders from across the country to come together to connect and share ideas, insights, and advice during our annual Leadership Summit. 

Explore how deeply listening to students can drive transformational change in your classroom, school or district. 


See our model firsthand and listen to students who practice project-based learning in their classroom.

Participate in School Design Academy modules, where you will design your ideal school, your ideal graduate, and next steps for your immediate implementation.

Connect with NTN school and district leaders to share your specific challenges and find solutions.
