The One-to-One Institute is pleased to announce their partnership with ETA121 to assist schools implementing 1:1 initiatives, fulfilling the One to One Institute’s mission to support schools as they seek to provide equity of access and personalized learning by providing each student with a personal device.
With their new partnership, the One-to-One Institute and ETA121 have launched 1:1Done, which will bring together services offered through the One-to-One Institute along with software created to ensure that every 1:1 initiative or renewal is done on time, with direction, and with fidelity to best practices identified in the ground breaking Project RED research, co-authored by One to One Institute.
1:1DONE is a research-based project management solution that provides detailed steps and subtasks that help organizations lead successful 1:1 technology rollouts. 1:1Done provides budgeting prediction tools, readiness checklists, sample policies, objectives and forecasting tools. The software guides the district technology team through four distinct phases of an initiative: plan, implement, launch, and post-launch. These features will enable districts to assign each task to the responsible party and give district leaders and board members peace of mind as they look to transform learning through effective use of technology. Along with the software, 1:1Done provides consulting expertise from the One-to-One Institute. One-to-one Institute CEO, Sarah Hanawald stated that, “this partnership will empower schools, both because they won’t have to re-invent the wheel and they’ll feel confident in knowing that the logistics of their initiative are solid.” Learn more about 1:1Done at: www.1to1done.com.
About the One-to-One Institute
One-to-One Institute grew out of Michigan’s successful, statewide one-to-one initiative, Freedom to Learn. One-to-One Institute is a national non-profit committed to igniting 21st century education through the implementation of one-to-one technology in K-12 settings. Our mission is to transform education. We believe that by personalizing learning through universal, uninterrupted access to technology students will take ownership of their learning and maximize their potential. Sarah Hanawald, appointed CEO of One to One Institute in February, has over 20 years of experience leading 1:1 technology initiatives in three schools and leading ATLIS, a national organization for independent school technology leaders.
ETA121 was born from a collaboration of Dyton Learning Inc. and Dr. Trent Grundmeyer. Dyton Learning has been providing technology products services for education and training for over 20 years. Dr. Grundmeyer successfully implemented two separate 1:1 technology programs in school districts and is currently an Assistant Professor of Educational Leadership at Drake University. After implementing a 1:1 program twice, Dr. Grundmeyer saw the need to create software that would include key milestones and tasks that every district would need to think through, and a way to edit the lists to be customized for individual district needs.
