Positive1to1 Launches to Help Schools with 1to1 Device Resource Management, Repair, and Student Training

Positive1to1 Launches to Help Schools with 1to1 Device Resource Management, Repair, and Student Training

Positive1to1 was born out of need.

The need was a way to manage hundreds of laptop computers ready to be issued to students as the school year started.  Brock Maust was a teacher at Goshen High School in Goshen, IN, and was tasked with the responsibility.

From no system to a complete system using Google Docs, forms, and Sheets Brock was able to patch together a plan to issue laptops to students, develop a ticket system for repairs, and manage training students to help with repairs.

He realized his patchwork of various docs, sheets, and forms was a band-aid at best.  He envisioned a way to manage this all in one online software system where device management occurred, issuing to students was fast, tracking was easy, and student training could occur for those receiving a device, and for students wanting to learn technology including software and hardware servicing.

And Positive1to1 was born!

Positive1to1 is software for resource management, training for student repair and student orientation, as well as the support consulting your school needs to meet the lifecycle challenges of moving to 1:1.

Contact us to learn more about deploying this software with service to enable your school to handle device management (laptops, tablets, chromebooks, etc), parent communication, student orientation, and on-site repair via trained and certified students.

Not just a device management software, it’s a new way of educating to prepare tech-ready students for college and the world.

Brock Maust saw a need as other schools in his area were also moving to 1:1 without a concrete plan, and who were intrigued by the concept of student repair management that educated students and potentially earned the school more state funds.

It’s a win-win for school systems wanting to gain efficiencies, provide opportunities for their students and save money over time.
