REMC Instructional Technology Specialists (RITS)

Michigan's 28 Regional Educational Media Centers are housed at intermediate school districts. The REMC staff often includes people who support the meaningful use of educational technology in the classroom.  Together these people form a statewide team known as the REMC Instructional Technology Specialists (RITS).

In general, these specialists provide:

  • coaching
  • direct support for local educators
  • customized professional learning
  • opportunities to learn and explore in a "safe" environment
  • awareness of trends 
  • and much more

RITS members meet together regularly to collaborate, coordinate statewide professional learning, share best practices, and develop and implement new ideas to support Michigan learners.
