What Is It?

Project-Based Learning

New Tech Network-affiliated schools are built on the idea of using projects in learning. Projects are required to relate to real-world situations and to develop new skills, according to a New Tech rubric. Getting students to do their own research, evaluate their own skills and collect feedback from peers and teachers on their work are also goals within the program.
