The Michigan Department of Education’s Top 10 Strategic Education Plan is grounded in a foundation of equitable, empowering, whole-child education that benefits both learners and educators. To achieve the DOE’s mission, Michigan schools and districts are urged to:
Close achievement gaps by making high-quality instruction accessible to all students, regardless of life circumstances.
Provide students with every opportunity to pursue the broadest possible range of life and career dreams.
Encourage creativity, agency, and authentic student-educator collaboration in the classroom.
Support educators in implementing creative and innovative programming.
Include families and communities in decisions impacting students’ education.
Based on decades of research—as well as the pressing needs of tomorrow—SmartLab Learning offers Michigan educators an engaging solution for developing our next generation of innovators.
“My students are very hands-on in their learning. They are always touching something, so this is going to help in science where they will understand simple machines using the K’NEX. We’re past the generation where we’re just listening to a teacher. They are hands on. They need to build things and see things.”
