OPS Mobile Learning Unit

Big picture

Omaha Public Schools Mobile Learning Unit was created to address issues of digital equity in the North Omaha area. Anchored on a powerful district vision and community partnerships, this innovative initiative targets high poverty neighborhoods and schools. The goal: to use a whole-community approach to bring high-technology learning and digital citizenship skills to students and their families. While the MLU is focused primarily on specific community locations and partners, it could make an appearance at your school as well!
