MACUL is dedicated to bringing educators from all levels together to share their knowledge

The Michigan Association for Computer Users in Learning (MACUL) is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization established in 1975 dedicated to assisting the education community through support, promotion, and leadership in the effective use of educational technology.

What We Do

MACUL helps educators identify sound educational practices related to technology as well as understand the implications of rapid changes in technology. Recognizing the challenges in preparing students, we strive to encompass the entire educational community from preschool through college level.

MACUL is a force in building professional coalitions with organizations including the Michigan Virtual University, the Michigan Department of Education, AT&T, and others to benefit educators and students in the integral use of technology in education.

We are an organizational affiliate of the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).
