    Our Purpose
    The Region One ESC Learning Resources Integration (LRI) department is committed to innovative solutions for increased student performance for all students. Our LRI department continuously explores new tools and strategies to empower both students and educators with the knowledge and skills necessary to fully participate in a connected, technology-rich society. We offer a variety of training and technical services to support districts programs and services.
    Data Managment 
    Services include data management tools such as DMAC, Eduphoria, and TEKSBank for curriculum alignment, assessment and support. 
    Professional Staff Development
    We recognize educators as the most valuable resource to promote student learning environments that will prepare all students for the 21st century. Professional staff development services include our MegaByte Consortium, annual technology-based conferences, and technology educator resources such as our Tech Cafe. We offer a full range of staff development topics that include Blended Learning, Classroom Technology, Digital Citizenship, Flipped Classrooms, Media Literacy, Mobile Learning, Open Education Resources, and Social Media. 
    Promoting 21st Century Student Pioneers 
    Student services include week-long project-based Student Tech Camps for students of all ages to support 21st century skills development. In addition to exposing students to the latest apps and innovative technologies, our Student Tech Camps promote personal and social responsibility, critical thinking, creativity, digital literacy, communication skills, cross-cultural understanding, and the appropriate use of technology.
