Welcome to INTERACT….

INtegrating TEchnology Realistically Among Classroom Teachers.

The INTERACT Academy is an ongoing staff development program developed in 2008 by Dr. Randle and a team of LCISD Instructional Technologists.  By focusing on Dr. Marzano’s research-based instructional strategies from his book, Classroom Instruction That Works, this innovative training program helps classroom teachers learn to use technology as a means to enhance student learning.  We invite you to view and contribute to the iCafe blog with your thoughts, ideas, and concerns as we work together to infuse technology and a love of learning into everyday classrooms.

The Academy begins with a whirl-wind week of instructional strategies and technology tools.  Our intention during this week is not that you become an expert tech-tool user but rather an expert in using Marzano’s nine essential instructional strategies.  For help with tools and programs, check out our resources section!


We are excited for our third round of INTERACT and we are looking forward to the great things the week will bring!
