Program Awareness

Creating Program Awareness & Identifying Eligible Students

What You need to know

During this phase you’ll undertake the important work of creating program awareness within your high schools and identifying eligible students. We’ve learned from working with hundreds of districts that, even though the 1Million Project is free, it can be challenging to secure buy-in from eligible students. This collection of specific resources will help you address this challenge. Please engage in these efforts during the month of April.

Training Materials

Preparing for Your Activation Events

What You need to know

We trust you’ve attended one of the 1Million Project’s Welcome Calls and are now ready to move to the next phase of the implementation journey. Each school location is required to hold one or more Activation Events at the beginning of the 2018-19 school year during which school staff will activate and distribute devices to eligible students. To facilitate the device activation process, we have developed an online Device Management Portal. This portal is where schools will activate devices, suspend/cancel accounts, pull student reporting and more. Included here are step-by-step training materials that will prepare school staff on how to use the online portal in order to provide the device support students will need throughout the school year.

Attend one of the upcoming Device Management Portal Training webinars

Measurement

What You need to know

Critical to the 1Million Project is our gaining clarity on the impact we're having on students ability to achieve their full potential, and teachers' ability to support them in that endeavor. Through several surveys and a randomized, research study by researchers at Columbia University, we hope to gain critical insights from students and administrators that will help us deepen our impact.
 
In this section you'll find PDFs of our annual administrator and student surveys, as well as key information about Columbia University's study with select 1MP districts as we seek to better understand our impacts on key student attitudes, behaviors and performances.
