What Is 1-1 Computing?
One-to-one computing is an educational initiative with a simple goal: to move learning forward. By providing students and teachers with personal computers, laptops, or tablets, your school or district can encourage collaboration, cultivate creativity, build research skills, and expand critical thinking abilities.
To transform the education process, your district needs a tailor-made plan for one-to-one, with ongoing technical support and training. Virtucom works with you to develop the systems and programs necessary for success, and our involvement doesn’t stop there.
Get Your School District Ready
By harnessing the power of technology, you can elevate the learning experience for students and teachers. One-to-one computing requires a holistic approach—and we know a well-thought-out plan leads to a seamless transition. Lay the groundwork for success to amplify educational technology’s effect on your school.
Once you’ve announced your school district’s one-to-one initiative, we solidify plans for infrastructure, professional development, and curriculum integration.
After an initial survey of your school’s wireless network, we create a comprehensive deployment plan, outlining how we’ll onboard users, devices, and applications.
If you’re worried about technology slowing down lesson plans, Google Chromebooks make digitization seamless. Want to make the most out of one-to-one computing? We’ll help you choose the ideal devices for your school—and give you the tools and support you need to manage them.
You may not want to standardize your district on one type of device. Different departments or age groups may require different functionalities. Virtucom works with Lenovo, HP, and Dell, as well as Acer and Samsung to help integrate the newest and most efficient technology into your curriculum—without compromise.
A limited budget doesn’t need to limit your opportunity for digitization. Our 1:1 solutions are streamlined, customized, and affordable. By tailoring our financing options to your school district, we help make your monthly and annual expenses predictable.
We take a wide-angle view of your financial concerns, separating your capital and operating expenses—and we directly target any obstacles standing between 1:1 and your district.
For example, a multi-year contract may not make sense for your school if funding fluctuates year to year. Virtucom works to understand your process, so we can help you understand ours.
Our 1:1 experts provide onsite and remote support to keep your hardware and software up and running—so the learning never stops. At Virtucom, we don’t just focus on implementation and deployment of your devices—we stay with you throughout the journey, offering ongoing management solutions and support.
With vConsole, our web-based management solution, you get constant access to help desk services, along with a robust dashboard that lets you monitor all phases of the 1:1 lifecycle.
Track your assets in real-time, control user access and permissions, assemble user groups, and tailor device functions to who’s using it. We’ve designed vConsole specifically for K-12, with your district in mind.
