Technology

Technology is one of many tools teachers use to help students grasp and retain information. Maret’s integration of technology in every subject is thoughtful and deliberate. Our faculty drives the technology program, keeping the focus on class content.

Curriculum Snapshot

LOWER SCHOOL technology education focuses on discovery and exploration including the very basic tenets of computer coding.

MIDDLE SCHOOL students investigate the myriad ways in which technology enhances learning, including the fundamentals of computer programming.

UPPER SCHOOL sparks our students' imaginative approach to problem solving by encouraging boundary-pushing technological creativity.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

With technology immersed throughout Maret’s curriculum, students are bringing their own iPads, Kindles, laptops, and other devices to class, to better access academic materials. Maret has a requisite Bring Your Own Device Program (BYOD) for upper school students to ensure that every high school student has equal access to technology that strengthens classroom experiences. Financial assistance will be available to families who need help in covering the cost of devices.

MARET'S MAKERSPACE

STEM science class project

MakerSpace is a creative cauldron for computer education. Here students let their imaginations, technical skills, and problem-solving abilities soar. 3D printers, vinyl cutters, laser cutters, soldering equipment, LittleBits electronics, Tesla electronics kit, Spheros, a Raspberry Pi programmable computer, Makey-Makey, Kibos, Cubetto, and various other tools and materials are catalysts for tackling challenges with out-of-the-box thinking. MakerSpace is also well suited for the small group discussions and projects that are the cornerstone of Maret’s curriculum in every department.
