The morning strands include the following options:

CS Strand – Focuses on the current state of computer science (CS) in the UP districts, catering to those
interested in incorporating CS into their curriculum or school setup. Rather than delving deeply into
specific CS strategies, it offers insights and avenues for integrating CS into education.

esports Strand – Covers various aspects of esports, including trends particularly relevant to elementary
and middle school levels. It discusses organizing competitions, utilizing esports to enhance student
engagement, and preparing students for college and career paths through esports involvement.

Google Strand – Explores the use of Google tools for educational purposes. It aims to help educators
understand Google Classroom and provides insights into leveraging various Google tools for learning.
Additionally, it introduces some practical tools that educators can implement immediately.

Leadership Strand – The session begins by involving and engaging leaders in a morning session, followed
by an afternoon session focusing on AI. The aim is to keep leaders engaged throughout the day, providing
them with valuable insights into both leadership and AI.

REMC devices and an innovation playground for integrating educational technology (EdTech) into
teaching practices.
