MA integrates technology throughout the curriculum, and students will utilize technology in a variety of ways.
Our goal is to graduate digitally-literate students who can use technology as a valuable tool for learning.
Marin Academy has adopted a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) model, which allows MA to make digital devices a consistent component of teaching and learning. We maintain a high-speed Internet connection via a fiber-optic backbone running throughout campus.
Students have access to a wide variety of technology devices, including Macintosh or Windows computers and peripherals, various tablet computers, slide/negative and photo scanners, black and white laser and photo-quality color printers, 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC milling machines, and additional audio and visual digital recording and storage devices. We also give student access to a wide range of professional and educational software, depending upon the class, from media production to image processing to data manipulation. Many of these resources are located in MA's new Design Lab.
All members of the Marin Academy community have access to an email account and digital storage facilities. Parental permission is required before students may be given network, internet, and email access. See the Marin Academy School Network, Student E-mail, and Personal Technology Use Agreement.
