In a Cisco blog post, onebillion’s partnership with Open Up Resources for the FULCRUM education initiative, based in Oakland, CA and led by the NAACP, is cited as one of the tech nonprofit’s efforts to ensure education inclusivity for all.Despite more children attending school than ever before, disparities in learning outcomes remain prevalent. Using cash and product grants from Cisco, onebillion has localized its highly rated onecourse software to children who are currently out of school and not learning. onebillion partners with organizations worldwide – including Open Up Resources – to distribute onetab into schools.
onetab is designed for young learners (Pre-K to 2nd grade) to safely access pre-loaded math, reading and writing content without the need for Wi-Fi or parent/teacher help.
This partnership through the FULCRUM initiative ensured young students were able to continue their education during the pandemic using onetab.
“Teachers and parents were relieved that onetab didn’t require Wi-Fi or supervision and enabled children to have engaging, adaptive math and literacy activities that were more targeted and more fun than packets of worksheets. We had overwhelmingly positive feedback from families who received onetab, sharing that not only did they see a difference in their child’s math and literacy achievement, but that their attitudes about learning were also changing,” shared Jessica Sliwerski, CEO of Open Up Resources.
FULCRUM distributed more than 900 onetabs in the Fall of 2020 to pre-K through first grade learners to avoid the risk of losing foundational literacy and math skills during the pandemic.
Open Up Resources has implemented onetab to school districts located throughout the United States. Contact us to learn more about getting onetab for your district.
