Vision 2020: New Tech Program
Ethel M. Taylor Academy shapes students into self-sufficient learners who are ready to take on challenges in the 21st century. Students will develop confidence in working through real-world problems, taking risks, working in teams, exceling in leadership roles and advocating for their ideas.
What Does This Mean for Students?
Introduced for the 2017-18 school year for students in grades 3-6, the New Tech Network model is built around hands-on, project- and problem-based activities that help students apply what they’re learning to everyday life. The program will be rolled out to all students in grades K-6 for the 2018-19 school year.
The positive culture at Ethel M. Taylor Academy empowers students and the hands-on, multi-year approach gives students structure and support to ensure long-term success. They will gain the know-how to continually adapt their skills and further their knowledge — putting the power to pursue their dreams in their hands.
Ethel M. Taylor Academy students will benefit from:
•Immediate feedback on work through Echo, an online learning management system
•Access to cutting-edge technology and applications to develop and practice real-world technology skills (Microsoft Office, Google, etc.)
•Project-based learning opportunities that help students connect what they learn in the classroom to how it applies in the world and work in teams
•Partnerships with area businesses and organizations, and mentoring opportunities with students at Aiken New Tech High
