We at RE@L welcome Kyle Fruen to our RE@L Team!

Kyle brings both talent and experience to RE@L’s Mission of designing, developing and providing software applications that better serve K12 learners and teachers.

Welcome aboard, Kyle!

Here’s Kyle’s Self-Introduction….



My name is Kyle Harrison Fruen. I’m pleased to serve as the new Director of Business Development-Southwest Region at RE@L Inc.

I earned my B.A. in Sociology, with a Psychology Minor, from the University of Colorado in Boulder. Originally from Minnesota, I’m often found proudly encouraging the Twins, Wild, Vikings, or T-Wolves to victory.

Currently, I reside just outside of Boulder County, CO with my girlfriend, Jessica.

I’m an educator, athlete, musician, and volunteer with an insatiable thirst for knowledge.


Kyle and Students: Committed to Excellence

I’m honored to join the team at REAL Inc. Our quest to become the leading provider of mobile technology applications to students, in an effort to heighten the development of their analytical, creative problem solving and critical thinking skills, is of great importance to me.

As a former Second Grade Teacher and “Top Gun” Ed Tech Sales Manager, I realize the importance of generating excitement in the magnificent act of learning.


We’re “fighting the good fight” at RE@L Inc., while simultaneously creating ground-breaking technological advances in the world of education.


After all, “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” – John Dewey


Once again, “Welcome, Kyle! It’s great to have you on our RE@L Team.

We share your commitment to excellence”

Tom King & Dale LaFrenz

Dr. Tom King has served for over 40 years as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Saint Thomas in the School of Education. The Saturn School of Tomorrow, formerly a St. Paul Public School, and his visionary response to educational reform, was a lighthouse on the frontier of school change. Tom was an experienced high school teacher of mathematics, a school administrator, and Director of Technology for the St. Paul MN Public Schools. He is also a member of the RE@L Team. Dr. Dale LaFrenz is Chairman of RE@L and one of the founders of MECC Software who brought “Oregon Trail” to millions of K12 kids everywhere. He has written extensively on the history and evolution of Ed Tech. His work in forging new paths for MECC’S “edutainment" software was instrumental in connecting school-markets, kids, teachers and consumer-markets/kids/parents, and now serves as the new launching pad for RE@L apps and software.
