The One-to-One Institute Approach
One-to-One Institute’s mission is to provide support services for developing successful and sustainable 1:1 computing programs.
Leadership for 21st Century Schools
If you plan to implement a one-to-one learning program, there is no need to start from scratch. Take advantage of OTO’s experience with hundreds of successful one-to-one programs and our knowledge of the Key Implementation Factors that we determined from Project RED’s research.
OTO offers schools and districts a One-to-One Implementation Protocol designed to guide the planning and implementation process, as well as the development of leadership and instructional practices that will lead to a successful and sustainable one-to-one learning program.
Teacher Professional Learning
One-to-one learning provides students and teachers with their own personal portable technology devices connected wirelessly to the Internet. These devices enable teachers to provide highly personalized and targeted learning experiences. Students use their devices for everything from research and inquiry-based projects to collaboration, presentations, content creation, and assessments. All learning resources and activities are at their fingertips - anywhere, anytime. With one-to-one learning, students not only master core subjects but gain skills vital to success in the 21st century workplace.
Innovative Financial Solutions
One of the greatest challenges when implementing a 1:1 computing program is finding the funds to sustain the program over the long-term. We know from our experience with hundreds of 1:1 program implementions that these programs are not sustainable unless the district allocates ongoing operating funds to the project.
OTO can help you find these funds. We provide expert analysis of current district expenditures and make recommendation that can lead to cost savings and the ability to redeploy assets to fund your program.
The mission of One-to-One Institute is to transform education by personalizing learning through universal access to technology.
