Project Based Learning

Project Based Learning is a student-centered instructional model that emphasizes inquiry, critical thinking, and peer to peer collaboration. 

In a PBL classroom, learners work together to solve problems that demand the development of new knowledge and new skills. 

Project Based Learning cultivates learners' abilities to solve problems by thinking strategically.

A Culture that Empower Learners and Teachers

‚ÄčAt Rogers New Tech, we hold a foundational belief in the growth mindset, which encourages taking risks and views failure as an opportunity for reflection and growth. 

In each project, students work together to determine what they already know, what they need to know, and what next steps they need to take to complete the work. Teachers work as facilitators, meeting the needs expressed by students at the projects outset. 

In addition to teaching traditional academic skills in subjects like math, social studies, science, and English, teachers also train students in essential soft skills for the twenty first century. 

Students are assessed for agency, which measures a student's ability to take ownership over their own learning, collaboration, which measures their ability to work well in a team, and oral communication which measures their ability to present their thoughts and communicate with their peers. 

Technology Integration

Students are equipped with their own computer that provides access to greater resources for research, creativity, and collaboration. 

Daily agendas and activities are posted to our online learning management system, Echo. 

In addition to enjoying the benefits of technology, we teach and reinforce the importance of healthy and respectful technology use in the classroom.
