Providing the tools for educators and students to succeed.
We recognize that educators have little time to research new education technology and effective classroom technology integration, and even less time to worry about whether or not their network and hardware are safe and reliable for planning and delivering instruction.
Macro Connect specializes in supporting school management of student information systems, technology-informed teaching and learning, and strategically enhanced IT infrastructure in traditional school models, blended learning environments, and new school startups.
Our expertise spans across the three service areas that are foundational to school technology performance:
Beyond extensive networking and hardware education technology expertise, we offer streamlined information systems management. Our Infrastructure practice designs, builds, and maintains sound technology environments that provide a foundation for our clients’ educational models. To date, we have been involved with the technology design, build-out, and implementation of almost twenty new schools throughout the country.
A high quality education begins with empowering students and teachers with the right tools and support. How we can supplement your existing technology infrastructure or exclusively manage your school or district IT strategy?
In addition to our onsite and online technology integration professional development programs, our suite of Digital Learning services includes product selections and evaluations, strategic level leadership consulting and visioning, annual audits of your Digital Learning environment, and educator and administrator PLC facilitation and edtech coaching.
Projects in this practice are delivered by real educators, all of which are still in the classroom through our coding curriculum programs. These coding programs span K-12 and include professional development for the hosting schools’ co-teacher(s). Our K-8 program uses themes like Game Design and block-based programming to teach kids to write code, while our 9-12th grade Sonic Pi STEAM curriculum teaches students music composition while learning to program in Ruby.
