Project-based learning (PBL) uses the latest technology and inquiry to engage students with issues and questions that are relevant to their lives. In New Tech classrooms, teachers design rigorous projects tied to state and district standards and customize them to real world applications and the interests of the learners. Students then work in teams to acquire and apply knowledge and skills to solve problems. For example, English and Social Studies classes can be integrated so that both groups are learning the same content in a team teaching environment.

With access to Web-enabled computers and the latest in collaborative learning technology, every student becomes a self-directed learner who no longer needs to rely primarily on teachers or textbooks for knowledge and direction. We use an online learning management system to create a vibrant network which helps students, teachers, and parents connect to each other, and to student projects, in San Antonio and across the country.
