What is New Tech Network (NTN) at McCorkle Academy of Excellence K-8?


This video was produced and edited by the students of the McCorkle Academy of Excellence K-8 NTN Class of 2020

In the 2015-2016 school year, our 7th and 8th graders will be part of a new curriculum model centered around Project-Based Learning (PBL). Our students will prepare for high school by using technology that enables, teaching that engages, and a culture that empowers. We are the first middle school in Tucson to join the New Tech Network, a nationwide network of 110+ schools that practice the PBL model.

We are excited to announce that our sixth grade classes will join the middle school model for the 2016-2017 school year! More than two dozen staff members engaged in intense professional development this summer at the New Tech Network Conference in Orlando, Florida! Follow our journey @McCorkleAcademy #NTAC16
