The REMC Association PLAYDATE and MACUL (Michigan Association of Computer Users in Learning) are partnering to bring you Digital Age Teaching Exploration. Revisit popular MACUL conference session topics as well as educational technology strategies and tools in the PLAYDATE format. There are no experts, no formal presentations, just sharing and learning alongside one another!
Participants attending the full PLAYDATE receive a $25 Amazon gift card.
Date: April 28, 4–6 p.m.
Digital Literacy: Here, There and Everywhere
Join nine organizations in learning about digital literacy from local and national experts. Kickoff day one provides inspiration and definition with a taste of exceptional on-demand content. Each presenter will provide a task, challenge or idea for you. Then you continue to learn through self-paced content over the three weeks to dive deeper, curate and create while networking and participating in an ongoing Twitter Slow Chat. The culminating day will conclude with more inspiration, including the sharing of artifacts, ideas, resources, and curriculum connections to use tomorrow. The curated list will be shared live after the event.
Date: November 18, 2020 – April 21, 2021
