The Personalized Learning Conference will be held at Kent ISD on April 29, 2016. All educators who want to learn more about personalized teaching and learning are welcome and encouraged to attend.
Our goal with this conference is to build awareness and understanding of how to personalize teaching and learning for the purpose of increasing student learning outcomes. We will also focus on how to implement personalized learning through mastery learning and system-alignment.
Registration opens on January 4 at 8AM. For additional updates about the conference, please visit the conference website at http://plcon16.weebly.com.
Last year we debuted a new style of annual report - the infographic. This year, we are pleased to share with you the enclosed next iteration of the report, one that we hope you'll find further streamlines the conversation and illustrates the impact of the REMC Association on Michigan schools.
Talking about and helping you understand the statewide impact of REMC projects and initiatives is important to us. Invested dollars only mean as much as the outcome of those dollars, and this year's outcomes are something of which we are proud.
If this is the first time you're hearing about REMC, we're pleased to "meet" you and glad you've taken the time to get to know us. If you'd like to know more about how we work with Michigan schools, please visit our website at www.remc.org.
While the scope of engagement in the support of professional development, blended and online learning and financial savings for Michigan schools is on par with years passed, we have seen a significant increase in those savings. Take SAVE Bid for example: in 2013, the REMC Association helped shepherd $44,434,098 in savings. In 2014, that number increased by more than $1 million. That means more than $1 million stayed where it belongs: in our schools.
The REMC Association hopes that you will find this report interesting and informative, and maybe even inspirational. Thank you for the role you play in helping Michigan schools succeed.
If you have further questions about any of the information printed here, please feel free to be in touch.
As always, best wishes for a successful 2015-2016 school year!

Kent ISD's New Digital Assessment Series Begins with Substitutional Assessment Tools and Strategies
This course is part one of Kent ISD's Digital Assessment Series. Each course features five one-hour sessions that you can access in person at Kent ISD or virtually via web conference. Each session will be simulcast and will include direct instruction, as well as workshop time with available support from the instructors.
This workshop series is targeted towards teachers who do not currently use digital assessment and focuses on transitioning these teachers from using traditional assessment tools to free online assessment tools. Each week we will learn about a different tool and explore how students can demonstrate knowledge using this tool. The assessment tools we will learn about include:
- Google Forms
- Poll Everywhere
