New Tech Network announced this month that Niles New Tech was selected as a National Demonstration Site in the New Tech Network. Niles New Tech epitomized the best example of the New Tech mission – to help students gain the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in life, college and the careers of tomorrow.
To receive this prestigious distinction, Niles New Tech achieved many notable accomplishments. The school had to develop a clear set of student learning outcomes consistent with skills required to succeed in college, career or civic life. These include content mastery tied to state standards as well as work ethic/collaboration, critical thinking and oral and written communication.
Demonstration site schools play a key role in the development and scale of the New Tech Network as well. Niles will host tours for national, state and local schools and districts to experience a New Tech school firsthand.
Visitors will take part in student-led tours to learn about the fundamentals of the school, including project-based learning examples, integrated use of technology and the culture shift that is integral to every New Tech.
