About RITS

Michigan's 28 Regional Educational Media Centers are housed at intermediate school districts or regional education service agencies and often include a person who supports the meaningful use of educational technology in the classroom.  Together these people form a statewide team known as RITS:  REMC Instructional Technology Specialists.

RITS members meet regularly to collaborate around state initiatives, share best practices, and generate new ideas to support Michigan learners.  If you would like to connect with a RITS member please contact your REMC director (locate them here) or contact the RITS chair directly at rits@remc.org.

Check out what our instructional technology specialists are up to.
