TIP OF THE MONTH

Becoming a Digital Citizen




"I was very impressed with the Immersion Training for the teachers and the OTO Digital Coach did a phenomenal job with our staff. The teachers came in feeling very overwhelmed about the new 1:1 program but by the end of the training, they were much more at ease. This training was essential to getting our 1:1 off on the right foot."

“I just wanted to say thanks for giving me direction with the Principals/Leadership team. I created a walk-through form to collect data, and the principals now have iPads to use to collect that data.”

“I am glad to see the evaluation shows signs of transformation. That is exactly what we wanted. That transformation has to be attributed to your team’s presentation of their knowledge and experience. Thank you again for your patience, flexibility and professionalism.”

    • 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.
