Primary School

Children are naturally eager to question, develop their own theories — even change a point of view.

Technology Integration

The goal of the Marin Primary & Middle School technology program is to prepare our students to thrive in a digital world. We integrate technology to support teaching and learning. The technology education specialist works with classroom teachers to develop projects that are integrated with the classroom curriculum. In addition, we concentrate on the skills required to use technology successfully and safely.

Goals and Objectives:

  • Utilize a variety of online sources for research
  • Communicate and work collaboratively
  • Complete classroom assignments using digital tools
  • Refine their informational technology skills
  • Develop an appreciation of the qualities necessary to become responsible digital citizens

Our primary school students use age appropriate technologies to conduct research, acquire digital literacy skills, showcase and publish content, and improve skills across the curriculum in the classroom and in the Media Center. All primary grades have a bank of iPads, and computer-connected projectors that our teachers use to facilitate learning. In the fourth grade, the class has a 1:1 iPad program to support learning and homework projects. 

Each of our middle school students is assigned a device. Students receive digital literacy instruction to learn responsible use of information and technology. Students take ownership of assigned devices and use critical thinking skills to plan and conduct research, manage projects, and create original work.

The Marin Primary & Middle School technology program strives to improve educational methods incorporating technology through the active engagement of the Technology Advisory Committee, which includes trustees and parents with professional background and expertise in the field of technology, and the teachers and staff commitment  to cultivate a professional learning community
