Have you or are you getting ready to implement a one-to-one program or digital conversion? One-to-One Institute (OTO) can customize an Implementation Analysis to ensure you are on a successful pathway. OTO has designed tools and consultancies to identify success strategies and gaps to help ensure the district’s productive implementation. The analyses are conducted by One-to-One Institute’s Leadership Consultants, and include a review of the organization’s Implementation Plan, as well as extensive quantitative and qualitative data collected during a visit to the organization. The visit includes tours of any 1:1 pilot (or similar) programs in elementary, middle and high school, as well as focus group interviews with the following staff:
- Elementary school teachers
- Middle school teachers
- High school teachers
- Elementary principals
- Middle school principals
- High school principals
- District instructional technology and professional learning directors
- Chief information officer
One-to-One Institute’s process and report are aligned to the latest 1:1 implementation research, which includes the Project RED Key Implementation Factors, and One-to-One Institute’s Essential Elements. The analysis that is provided to the organization will provide a description of the current alignment to each of these best practices, and provide recommendations in each category that address gaps in the district’s alignment.
School system leaders, school administrators, and teachers need easy-to-understand, practical answers to a variety of privacy and security-related questions:
- Why privacy is such a big deal?
- What are the specific threats to privacy and how can you address them?
- What are the basics of privacy laws such as FERPA and COPPA?
- What are the guiding principles that every educator should adopt?
- What specific steps can school system leaders take to better ensure privacy?
One-to-One Institute offers half-day and full-day workshops that address these questions and provide a variety of web-based resources that help schools address privacy issues. Sessions are intended to be interactive and the content is appropriate for a wide range of attendees. A technology/technical background is not required for attendees.
K-12 schools know the importance of learner privacy and security of student data. If threats to student data privacy and security aren't enough, the Federal and state laws intended to protect student privacy are complex and, sometimes, outdated, which makes compliance very difficult for schools. Don't reinvent the wheel. Learn from the expertise of One-to-One Institute and schedule your Data Privacy and Security workshop today!
This hands-on workshop will provide participants with the ability to utilize practical strategies to implement effective and research-based parent/caregiver engagement strategies that will alleviate parental/caregiver concerns about technology and improve student learning by involving parents/caregivers. These techniques will enhance parents’/caregivers' understanding of district technology practices and policies. Topics will focus on the research on parent/caregiver engagement, the benefits of involving parents/caregivers with technology innovation, the design of parent/caregiver engagement programs, and methods for using technology to engage parents/caregivers with your digital education programs.
Administrators will leave this workshop with strategies to identify parent concerns and questions through surveys and focus groups, improve parent/caregiver engagement, address parent/caregiver concerns, and communicate about connected learnings.
Participants in the full day workshop will also have a chance to collaborate with the facilitator on the design of tools that are specific to their own schools. In the half day session, participants will begin the process of planning events, and calendars.
