You will engage in learning sessions addressing common school-based problems of practice, connect with fellow educators committed to student-centered learning, enjoy dedicated planning time to apply learning, and be inspired for the next school year. $1,400.00 per person.

NTN101 is a four-day essential course designed to support teachers joining existing or alumni New Tech Network schools.

Registration for this program is open to all new classroom educators of current and alumni schools in the New Tech Network. $1,400.00 per person.

New Leader Workshop is a two-day workshop for new or returning school and district leaders at existing or alumni NTN schools. For new school leaders, this experience is designed to build a foundational understanding of the New Tech Network Model (ensuring every student progresses through K-12 to be college and career ready), the instructional and cultural dimensions of the NTN Model that support the learning outcomes, and the leadership mindsets, practices and tools essential for effectively leading a New Tech Network school. Returning leaders will also have an opportunity to improve their knowledge of the fundamentals, learn about new improvements, and re-engage with peers from across the Network. $1,400.00 per person. New Leader Workshop includes elements of Summer Gathering.

PBL Orientation Planning supports districts with multiple NTN schools in planning and designing PBL orientation events modeled after NTN101. School and district leadership teams will develop strategies and access resources essential to orient new staff to the components of PBL and learning outcomes aligned to NTN tools and practices. The PBL Orientation Planning track is intended for districts with multiple New Tech Network schools or planning to have multiple New Tech Network schools. Please note: this track is by invitation only. For more information please contact ntnevents@newtechnetwork.org.

New Schools Training (NST) is a four-day experience designed to focus on three main areas: (1) project-based learning (PBL) design and instruction; (2) school and classroom culture practices that support PBL; and (3) assessment environments that emphasize feedback and growth. Participants will use key tools and resources from the NTN Help and Learning Center, including NTN’s Project Planning Toolkit, sample projects, and NTN Practices Cards, and support deeper understanding of Echo. Throughout the training, participants will have opportunities to do focused work with their school’s first year implementation team and opportunities to learn with other new schools and teachers across the country. Teams will walk away from NST with plans to build and support classroom culture and initial plans for one PBL unit. Please note: this track is by invitation only.
