In Orono Public Schools, technology plays a vital role in ensuring that all stakeholders are able to maximize their potential in life. We believe in providing all stakeholders with learning environments that provide access to a wide variety of resources, both digital and physical. Current research supports the integration of technology into the classroom in order for learners to engage in more rigorous and deeper learning. A robust technology platform allows for students to expand their learning environment and engage with diverse cultures and communities across the globe. Digital resources can enhance and accelerate learning outcomes for all students. Our goal is to provide students with digital experiences that focus on engaging students in new learning that enables them to create and innovate, collaborate with others, communicate effectively and think critically when presented with new information.
Four Core Strategies
In order to achieve our vision, there are four core strategies that we will utilize to achieve this vision: Instructional Technology, Access, Customer Service, and Safety and Security. Each strategy will focus on the knowledge, actions and values of all stakeholders as we work collaboratively toward these outcomes.
