1TWO1 computing refers to Richland Two’s comprehensive model for making a computer available to each student in grades 3 through 12—giving them a powerful tool for learning. The computers offer the potential for students to engage in the real work of mathematicians, scientists, composers, authors and engineers. But 1TWO1 isn’t primarily about the computing devices—it is about learning. The initiative includes professional development that supports appropriate integration into the curriculum and opportunities for parents to learn more about technology and ways they can help their children use technology wisely at school and at home.
The full rollout of 1TWO1 began in January of 2012 and will conclude during the 2013-14 school year. Phase One included grades 5, 6 and about a third of high school classrooms. The second phase will begin in the 2012-13 school year for grades 4, 7 and another third of high school classrooms. The third phase will provide devices to grades 3, 8 and the remainder of high school classrooms.
