At the core is a student centered, project and problem based teaching strategy that is tied to both content standards and school wide learning outcomes.


Project and problem based learning keys to 21st century learning
Project- and Problem-Based Learning teaching strategy that is tied to both content standards and school wide learning outcomes.Keys to 21st Century Learning

  • To learn collaboration, work in teams.

  • To learn critical thinking, take on complex problems.

  • To learn oral communication, present.

  • To learn written communication, write.

  • To learn technology, use technology.

  • To develop citizenship, take on civic and global issues.

  • To learn about careers, do internships.

  • To learn content, research and do all of the above.

NTHS teachers start each unit by throwing students into a realistic or real-world project that both engages interest and generates a list of things the student need to know. Projects are designed to tackle complex problems, requiring critical thinking. New Tech’s strategy is simple:


Each unit begins when students are presented with a complex, standards-based problem

Students form a team, develop a work contract and build a work plan


Students get to work! standards-based problem

Students are provided an online briefcase specific to the project with information, resources, links and assessment criteria that help guide them.


Students Need To Know standards-based problem

Student questions and “need to knows” drive classroom lectures and activities. Sometimes for the whole class … sometime for just one student


Students experiment and apply learning standards-based problem

Students test their ideas and experiment to find solutions and breakthroughs while receiving ongoing feedback from instructors.


Students get back to work! standards-based problem

Students work and collaborate in a business-like environment, where they know their deliverables and have the technology tools to do their jobs.


Students prepare to present standards-based problem

Students work on building presentations to repre-sent their work and defend their solutions


Students present their solutions! standards-based problem

Students present ideas through debates, skits, panels, presentations, etc… where their work is evaluated by peers, teachers, parents, and community
