Trifold Framework of Technology that Enables, Culture that Empowers and Curriculum that Engages

At Bulldog Tech we believe that middle school is the most pivotal time to instill the skills and mindsets that will boost learning through adulthood. By partnering with the New Tech Network, we ensure that our students will maximize their learning and readiness for high school, college, and career using a proven model. Hanging on the side of our school is an artistic representation of the model we use:

Curriculum that Engages
By engaging students through project-based learning, students become problem-solvers. Teachers design complex, authentic challenges that engage students, require them to demonstrate mastery of knowledge, and foster written and oral communication skills. They learn to manage projects as a leader and a team member and become very adept at collaboration and team skills.

Technology that Enables
Through a technology-rich environment, teachers and students create, communicate, access information, and experience self-directed learning. All students receive an iPad to use, along with laptops, printers, on a robust wireless campus. Echo, NTN’s online learning platform, supports project-based learning and features an innovative gradebook.

Culture that Empowers
By making learning relevant and creating a collaborative learning culture, students become connected to, engaged with, and challenged by their school, teachers and peers. Each school promotes a culture of trust, respect and responsibility.

Student Outcomes that Matter
Learning outcomes measure knowledge and thinking, collaboration, written and oral communication, students’ responsibility for their own learning and their ability to create beautiful work through drafts, critique and improvement. Additional performance assessments at Bulldog Tech and personalization tools measure the knowledge and thinking of students to help them become proficient in producing higher level work.
