Going 1:1 is one thing, making devices useful for student learning is another

Buying and distributing devices is the easiest part of implementing the one to one initiative. For instance, without an integrated platform that provides organization and structure for using devices; students, teachers, families, and school leaders are completely overwhelmed with the number of edtech tools on the market.

This is because we are inspired by feeling completely overwhelmed when, as teachers and administrators, our districts went 1:1 and a platform like Otus didn’t exist to streamline how technology can be used to support learning.
