The RCS Technology Department seeks to provide students with the technology tools and resources to attain the necessary skills and knowledge to become lifelong learners and contribute to a diverse, interdependent and changing world. We work to foster the following learner profile as outlined in the Michigan Integrated Technology Competencies for Students (MITECS) standards. Partnerships are a critical component of the MITECS as learners access network professional experts and explore local community issues:
Empowered Learner: Learners leverage technology to take an active role in choosing, achieving, and demonstrating competency in their learning goals, informed by the learning sciences.
Digital Citizen: Learners recognize the rights, responsibilities and opportunities of living, learning and working in an interconnected digital world, and they act in ways that are safe, legal and ethical.
Knowledge Constructor: Learners critically curate a variety of resources using digital tools to construct knowledge, produce creative artifacts and make meaningful learning experiences for themselves and others.
Innovative Designer: Learners use a variety of technologies within a design process to solve problems by creating new, useful or imaginative solutions.
Computational Thinker: Learners develop and employ strategies for understanding and solving problems in ways that leverage the power of technological methods to develop and test solutions.
Creative Communicator: Learners communicate clearly and express themselves creatively for a variety of purposes using the platforms, tools, styles, formats and digital media appropriate to their goals.
Global Collaborator: Learners use digital tools to broaden their perspectives and enrich their learning by collaborating with others and working effectively in teams locally and globally.
