Three and a half years ago, former Michigan State Superintendent Brian Whitson announced Michigan would become a #GoOpen state, part of a larger movement for Open Education.
What has this meant for Michigan? And what does it mean for you as an educator?
Educators are getting started with Open Educational Resources, called OER. To provide support, the REMC Association is offering “Dive into OER” with the goal of building a statewide network of advocates and facilitators to train peers. These individuals will learn about OER and the #GoOpen Michigan website during a two-day workshop, and then share this information within their school communities.
Schools still have a REMC SAVE contract to purchase devices even though the Device Purchasing purchase window has now closed.
