Huntington North High School will be introducing the New Tech curriculum for the 2010-2011 school year. What is New Tech and is it for you? According to the New Tech Network’s web site, “Our goal is to enable students to gain the knowledge and 21st century skills they need to succeed in life, college and the careers of tomorrow. The New Tech model provides an instructional approach centered on project-based learning, a culture that empowers students and teachers, and integrated technology in the classroom. Our hands-on, multi-year approach gives schools structure and support to ensure long-term success.” No one can argue the benefits of attaining the knowledge and skills to succeed in life, college and the careers of tomorrow. Does the New Tech curriculum live up to these statements?
