We have partnered with Region 11 Texas
iSchool Initiative and Region 11 Service Center have partnered to provide school districts an opportunity to participate in our iSchool Advocate Program! Districts will be able to send a selected group of students to our three day program over the summer to develop student technology leaders. There are a limited number of seats for each county, so register early to make sure your students don’t miss out!

iSchool Advocate Student Program
Empower students to model, inspire, and facilitate change through technology at the local school level.
✪ Create positive agents for change that help facilitate ongoing technology initiatives throughout the district while learning important STEM, leadership, and collaboration skills
✪ Model 21st century learning (ISTE Standards for Students)
✪ Create projects that inform, build excitement for, and support technology learning initiatives
At the end of the program, Advocates create several projects to assist the district in their technology initiative. Here are a couple of examples of student projects at Keller ISD, Texas:
Life Lessons Class - A group of Advocates is organizing a class where students learn life lessons. They focus on topics that don't necessarily fit into regular class curriculum, and skills needed after you graduate high school, such as how to file taxes and build good credit.
Teacher Student Assistants - Students work to become teacher assistants, with a focus on integrating technology into each class.
