ENGAGING STUDENTS - EMPOWERING TEACHERS - TRANSFORMING SCHOOLS
Lauren Marold - Maker Mindsets
I have worked as a K-8 Educational Technologist for over ten years in independent schools in Dallas, TX. I have a background in arts and humanities which I draw inspiration from when I help schools build communities that support a maker mindset through integrated technology learning experiences. I am a member of the 2017-2018 Association for Technology in Independent Schools (ATLIS) Early Career and Aspiring Technology Directors Institute (ECATD). I am currently working as the Preschool/Lower School Technology Coordinator at Greenhill School, Texas.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Texas State University, a Master of Liberal Studies from Southern Methodist University and recently completed a Master of Educational Technology Leadership through George Washington University.
I am passionate about how technology can reinvent the learning environment. I believe deeply in the maker movement and I have seen the benefits of hands-on STEAM education in K12. I feel that all children are makers innately, and there is no better way to connect concrete learning concepts than through the process of building and designing authentic solutions to real world problems. I have worked in iPad and BYOD environments my entire career.

As a Lausanne Learning Consultant, Lauren exemplifies the LL Five Consulting Characteristics:
- Student-Centered Character: LL Consultants always keep each student at the center of the conversation in imagining what “could be” from “what is”
- Sustaining Character: LL Consultants are focused on working with the school to implement practices that can be sustained over the long term to support the school’s mission
- Imaginative Character: LL Consultants are expert and thus can imagine different answers as you interrogate the key question or questions that you are being asked
- Independent Character: LL Consultants ensure that their clients become independent of them over time, not co-dependent
- Fearless Character: LL Consultants won’t tell their clients what they want to hear but what, in their professional opinion, should be said
