New Tech Network Benefits

New Tech Teams are provided one year of teacher access to Echo, our online learning management platform, and a set of projects to serve as models for PBL practice that are ready to be used in the classroom. Teams have access to NTN’s extensive library of tools and learning modules to help them build culture, use technology well, and use project-based learning as the primary means of instruction.

During or after the initial semester, a team can choose to supplement the standard New Tech Teams agreement by requesting on-site facilitated workshops around topics that are common to groups wanting to improve their PBL practice as well as add student access to Echo to fully utilize the outcomes-based gradebook. A school may also choose to implement another grade level Team to continue the work toward whole-school transformation.
