Whole School Transformation for Every Child in Texas

New Tech Network schools succeed by addressing four focus areas: college and career outcomes, purposeful assessment, supportive and inclusive culture, and meaningful and equitable instruction.

Successful students should leave school with the skills and abilities to thrive in the workforce – whether they enter the workforce immediately, choose to attend college, or work while continuing their education.

Higher academic and business community are demanding different skills from employees and college students. Businesses are no longer aligned with the way traditional school is taught.

A collaborative, whole school culture is critical to meaningful, sustainable change.

School and District Spotlights

School Leaders Say...

We strongly believe that deeper learning is the vehicle which allows these students to grow and flourish.
Chrysta Carlin
Assistant Superintendent of Pathways and Innovation at Leander ISD
New Tech Network allows us to give learners more than just knowledge and skills around the state standards. Being a part of the Network has given us the tools and know-how to explicitly teach and assess critical learning outcomes like agency, collaboration, and communication, which are not always addressed by typical state standards.
Leslie Snyder
Project Based Learning Coordinator, Manor Independent School District
The proof of concept is watching those students show passion, excitement and genuine curiosity about what they’re learning. It’s different for them than they’ve ever experienced.

2023 Impact Report

NTN is proud to present the 2023 Impact Report. This endeavor highlights new and updated research, and provides evidence about the NTN Model and PBL.

Better Together

To prepare students for the future, they need to develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills, and learn how to find and apply content knowledge, not just memorize it. To tackle this challenge educators cannot work alone. New Tech Network is just that, a Network, where a group of diverse, driven educators work together to pioneer learning for the future.
