Our History

For more than 20 years, we’ve helped schools and educators prepare and embrace the kinds of change that make a difference in their students’ lives.

Applied research. We will demonstrate hands-on classroom experiences, based on documented research, designed to impact every student’s achievement.

Planning and implementation. Our comprehensive education plans include not just hardware, but also onsite classroom orientation, professional development, and implementation strategies for effective results.

Local support. We support Texas initiatives with local events including user groups focused on collaborative curriculum integration and effective classroom management.

Experienced installation experts. Our certified installation team applies the same level of care and focus to every implementation project, no matter the size.
