REMC Association Projects

REMC Association Statewide Projects are an important part of the work of REMC 2.  These programs provide access to free, quality professional development and instructional resources as outlined below.

MI Tech Kid

Short lessons, ideas, and resources for integrating technology in the K-5 classroom curriculum that is aligned with the Michigan Integrated Technology Competencies for Students (MITECS).

Professional Learning/Virtual Courses

As learning takes on new formats, it's important for educators to keep their skills current. REMC’s Virtual Courses are safe and convenient, and a great way to grow your professional network from home! Plus, all REMC Virtual Courses are open to all Michigan school personnel and offer 10 SCECHs upon completion.

MITECS (Michigan Integrated Technology Competencies for Students)

The Michigan Integrated Technology Competencies for Students (MITECS), released December 2017, replace the 2009 Michigan Educational Technology Standards for Students (METS-S). These updated competencies focus on learning enhanced by technology, rather than on technology tools. 

iPads in Action

During these virtual sessions, you’ll have an opportunity to reflect on your goals for teaching and learning with iPad, engage in conversations about learning with Apple technology and think about ways you can support your students.  Approximately 75 minutes of the session will be the presentation. Apple specialists will stay on the line for an additional 45 minutes as an office hour to answer questions. Upon successful completion, earn two SCECH's for each session.  Each session is offered twice.

MiSTEM Network

t is the belief of the MiSTEM Network that all students impact economic growth through professional and personal fulfillment through equitable access to rich STEM experiences. Together the MiSTEM Network can collaborate to create a vibrant and equitable culture that meets future demands. The MiSTEM Network is building a sustainable and equitable cross-disciplinary STEM culture.

Coding in the Classroom

Learning to code can be easy for both the teacher and the student with the introduction of several coding programs that have been created to introduce coding to K-12 students. In this independent learning unit, you will be introduced to several free coding platforms as well as teaching strategies, lessons, and hardware so that you will be coding by the time you have completed this unit. 

Classroom Makers

Classroom Makers helps educators understand the pedagogical uses for “maker” in the classroom, how makers support Michigan content standards, and how to implement maker ideas with students.

#GoOpen Michigan
