A Virtual Rally to Connect, Share, and Grow
The winter virtual rally has become a staple for the METS group. This online conference allows edtech’ers from across Michigan to connect, share, and grow together, all without leaving the comfort of our own homes and offices. Last year’s event proved the value of hosting this event online when a winter storm shut down all schools across the state.
This year’s rally will kick off with a fabulous set of keynote speakers followed by three sessions of interactive roundtable discussions. We also have several Regional Rally Roundups for participants interested in a full day of professional learning.
STEM Thinking: Making Valuable Industry Connections
We will kick off the virtual rally with a STEM focused keynote featuring the Kent ISD STEM Consultants, Rick Mushing and Ebiri Nkugba. They will share how educators can develop meaningful STEM learning experiences for students by engaging and collaborating with local industries.
