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

The New Tech Teams approach brings together a grade-level team to collaborate on planning, implementing, and evaluating a coordinated implementation of project-based Learning. At U-32, the middle school has three 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 also leave with both hard and digital copies of project documents used in the 2017–18 school year.
