Technology at Mabry

Mabry students produce such astounding technology-based projects that people mistakenly assume we have lots of state-of-the-art equipment. Nothing could be further from the truth! The vast majority of our limited technology resources are extremely out-of-date, some are even unquestionably obsolete.

Our teachers and students are working miracles managing extremely limited resources. Teachers and students clamor to gain access to laptops and the computer lab. To give you some sense of perspective: We have around 70 teachers at Mabry, and on any given day, because we have so few carts with laptops, only 4 teachers can use laptops at any given time with their classes. When we are doing online student assessment, the laptops are then unavailable for classroom use.

So many wonderful technology-based educational resources are on line now. We have pro-scopes (electronic microscopes) that connect to the computers. Our teachers need reliable computers to do the basic mechanics of teaching, assessment, and communication. Bottom line: We desperately need laptops for each student and teacher so we can use them pervasively to maximize achievement!
