COTO - COMANCHE ONE-TO-ONE


1:1 Computing -- is an environment where students and teachers have around-the-clock use of a notebook computer as well as online and offline access to educational software and digital authoring tools.

Project Details
Plans for 1:1 computing at Comanche Independent School District began in the spring of 2009 through a vision of teachers, technology specialist and administrators. Programs were presented to the Comanche One-To-One Team (COTO), and discussions were held on the best plan of action for our district. Then with school board approval in July of 2009 the multi-part planning stages began.

Throughout the COTO implementation process, teachers learned how to include 21st Century learning tools in their classrooms, making their lessons more engaging. Students acquire the skills needed to compete in a world where technology is a standard working tool.

Funding for COTO is made available through yearly budgeting, grant opportunities and collaboration with other educational entities.
