In this session, teachers from the U-32 school district in Montpelier, Vermont will share their experience with implementing the New Tech Teams approach to project-based learning (PBL). This approach is part of the New Tech Network’s multi-year initiative to infuse principles of proficiency into engaged, authentic, and meaningful projects for secondary school students.

The New Tech Teams approach brings together a grade-level team to collaborate on planning, implementing, and evaluating project-based learning. U-32 has several interdisciplinary teams that meet regularly to coordinate instruction. Teachers from these teams will share their successes, challenges, and future hopes for robust project-based learning at U-32, and participants will examine project entry documents, assessments, and other materials that address both transferable skills and content standards. Participants will leave with copies of project documents used in the 2018-19 school year.
