A guiding philosophy at Mariemont has always been that investment in technology must directly impact the teaching and learning process. This belief has led to wise investment in technology that provides a scalable infrastructure and hardware, software and peripheral devices that pay the greatest dividends for the students and teachers in the classroom and beyond.
The district continues to maximize its investment by focusing efforts on professional development to ensure that Mariemont students master the 21st century skills required to compete in our global economy. We realize that as technology evolves, the power of the Internet will move more into the hands of our students, and we will need to adapt our planning and instruction to teach students how to be responsible and ethical contributors to this online community.
A number of recent projects highlight the district’s commitment to technology integration:
- Implementing a district-wide one-to-one technology plan across all curriculum and grade levels starting with grades K-8 iPad implementation.
- Grades 9-12 can Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) or rent from the district until the 2020-21 school year when the district will select a common device for the students at Mariemont High School.
- Implementation of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technology to enhance the instructional experience and level of learning retention.
- Continued success and expansion of implementation of 3D printing, Coding, Robotics, and STEM initatives.
- Expansion of “blended classes” that combine classroom learning and online instruction.
- Discovery and implementation of digital safety curriculum for all students.
- Expansion of the Mariemont Academy to provide ongoing teacher professional development, especially in the area of technology integration.
- Utilizing Blackboard as a centralized educational and organizational tool.
