“Technology is just a tool. In terms of getting the kids working together and motivating them, the teacher is most important.” – Bill Gates
Technology does not replace great teaching; technology enhances great teaching and all teachers at OMS strive to integrate technology into their classrooms. At OMS, all students in grades 6-8 are issued their own laptop to use. These MacBook Airs are provided to students and staff through the MLTI program from the Maine Department of Education.
