We're a company started FOR teachers BY teachers and we are passionate about revolutionizing teaching and learning with engaging technologies and effective technology implementation.

Our Story


Dustin and Cathy Frank graduate from Emporia State University in Kansas, and begin their math and science teaching careers.


Dustin & Cathy started the grand adventure that is the first year of teaching and would - with some regularity - shake their heads and say, "Boy, kids have really changed since we were in high school. At that point, it had only been a few years since they themselves were out of high school!


Dustin and Cathy were introduced to eInstruction classroom clickers by family members, and it took them next to no time to realize how this new technology could revolutionize the classroom.


After welcoming many interested educators into his classroom to see the impact of clicker technology in his classroom, Dustin left the classroom to pursue sharing eInstruction technology with teachers on a full-time basis.


Dustin and Cathy moved from the windy plains of a tiny town in Southwest Kansas (aptly named Plains) to the "big city" of Omaha, Nebraska to share the benefits of classroom technologies with an even larger audience.


As our business has grown, we have continued to seek out products that will make a difference in the way that students learn and teachers teach in the classroom - products that assist teachers in involving, engaging, and motivating.

In addition, we have been blessed to find passionate team members who have taken hold of the Engaging Technologies commitment to improving education for a new generation of learners.

Thanks for stopping by our website. It is our hope that you'll join our mission of improving education one classroom at a time!
