The One-to-One Institute ApproachOTO offers 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 1:1 program.
Leadership for 21st Century SchoolsIf 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.
Teacher Professional LearningOne-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.
One to One Institute is a tightly focused organization that equips schools to fulfill the moral imperative of ensuring every learner achieves their full potential with perpetual access to a personal computing device.
1:1 Readiness Assessment
(A DIY Option)
Is your school or district preparing to answer the call for digital equity by providing every student at school with a personal computing device? Are you feeling overwhelmed by how much there seems to be to do and knowing where to begin to get everyone on the same page?
One to One Institute, co-author of the groundbreaking Project RED research on effective 1:1 programs can help. Our research on high quality programs investigated every aspect of 1:1; from pre-planning to re-evaluating a mature program. In our work, we found that readiness is critical to a program's success. A year spent planning in the right areas vastly increases the likelihood of a program in which teaching and learning advance and students and teachers thrive.
When key factors are not addressed, poor readiness ensues, which means that the implementation will fail, even when combined with the best of intentions and valiant efforts on the part of administrators, teachers, and technology leaders.
We want to help your school or district begin your 1:1 implementation project with the right critical factors securely in place. We’ve turned our research into an interactive rubric that schools and districts can use to assess their readiness by addressing each of the key areas involved:
- Technology & Learning
Once the rubric is completed, a score for each area and an overall score are calculated.
The rubric requires a team effort to complete; engaging in the process will help you see your way forward as you plan. After completing a self-assessment, you will know where you need to bolster efforts to prepare for your 1:1 initiative. Signup below to get your free copy of our Readiness Assessment Tool.
Need more help than a self-assessment? We offer a full readiness assessment based on our years of research investigating successful 1:1 programs at hundreds of schools.
We can provide resources to complete a thorough readiness assessment and produce a report that is suitable for sharing with leadership teams, boards, and the community. Options include:
- Onsite or remote assessments of infrastructure
- Instructional readiness
- Leadership capacity
- Budgeting analysis
In a full readiness assessment from One to One Institute, scores are determined by survey results, observations, interviews, focus groups, and analysis of documentation you provide us.
Our CEO, Sarah Hanawald, wrote the article below that was published in Education and Career News.
We are at the beginning of the “Fourth Industrial Revolution,” a time of relentless change with rapid fusion of physical and digital technology across industries. Present-day students will have to be nimble digital learners throughout their careers. Currently, some schools provide all students with computers, Chromebooks, or tablets, while others have only classroom sets, or worse, ancient, largely unused computer labs. How do we get from this state of digital inequity to one where all students have access to the technology resources they need to build the skills essential to their futures?
