It is a new year, a new look, and it is that time again…INTERACT applications are now available!

Do you enjoy learning new ways of doing things? Are you tired of the same ol’ worksheets while using an overhead projector? Are you a team player and share with those around you? Then you might consider applying for INTERACT 3. You will be immersed with Marzano’s researched based instructional strategies as we show you how to effectively integrate technology into your curriculum.

Who: Certified Classroom Teachers (you must be a teacher of record and have a class roster in Discovery)
When: June 7-11, 2010
Where: LCISD (school TBD)
Time: 7:30 am – 4:00 pm (lunch provided)

You must attend ALL 5 days. If you miss any part of INTERACT, you will forfeit your eligibility for any equipment at the end.  An expectation upon academy completion is that you will become an instructional technology support line for your campus staff.  Whether that means you provide staff development opportunities on campus or “just in time” technology support, you will be there to help your campus use technology in their curriculum in the best ways possible!

Please find the link to the application HERE.  Applications are blindly graded by 3 different people using a rubric found HERE.  Principals are also asked to submit an evaluation for each applicant.  The scores are then combined and the top 2 from each campus will be extended an invitation to attend!

***Note: You will be chosen for the campus in which you are applying.  If you receive a transfer, your application will go back into the pool of applicants for your new campus.

We will be accepting applications from March 1-12, 2010.  Thank you for your interest!!!

*For those of you that are certified teachers in a support staff role, we will be offering another INTERACT in August.  You will not earn any equipment, but the knowledge gained in the academy will challenge you as a learner and dramatically change the way you work with students.
