Information Technology Services

The rapid pace with which technology changes in our world necessitates that our students must not only understand how to operate on today’s cutting edge, but indeed must develop a fluency and comfort that will allow them to easily adapt to changing technologies in the future.

The goal of the ADM School District’s technology department is to provide high-quality instructional and operational technology services for the district’s students and staff in support, in an effort to enable all members of the ADM community to rely upon technology tools to explore innovative new opportunities and develop this level of fluency.

As such, the district provides a wide array of technology district wide, including a standard classroom technology suite, general-use sets of devices, and hardware and software intended to support specific programs within the district.  Further, while the district strives to maintain a safe and healthy technology environment, we value the intellectual freedom inherent to technological fluency, and attempt to make our technology resources as accessible and productive as possible for all members of our community.

Classroom Technology Suite

The district’s standard classroom technology suite includes:

  • Integrated projector
  • Classroom-integrated speakers
  • Document camera (MimioView)
  • Interactive whiteboard technology
    • In classrooms with a ceiling-mounted projector, the district uses MimioTeach interactive whiteboard bars.  Otherwise, ultra-short throw Epson 475Wi projectors are used, which include interactive functionality.
