Technology Guiding Principles
At Marin Horizon School, we use technology as a tool to amplify student learning. Technology is not taught in isolation, but is integrated into the curriculum to create a real world and challenging learning environment for all.
Conscious of and intentional about its vast possibilities, our school sets high ethical standards for technology use and teaches students how to be responsible digital citizens.
We continually evaluate our use of technology to support exploration and innovation both within and beyond the classroom.Digital Citizenship:
Marin Horizon School uses Common Sense Media as well as other resources to integrate the teaching of media literacy and digital citizenship. Broad-based rules the students hear repeatedly include:
- Be Kind.
- Nothing is truly deleted.
- What is your digital footprint and digital tattoo?
- Do not do anything on a digital device that your Grandmother would not be proud to see or hear.
