The 21things4students.net project is supported by a grant from the REMC Association of Michigan and maintained by the original team from three Intermediate School Districts in Michigan (Shiawassee, Ingham, and Macomb) and in 2015 welcomed the addition of two additional members (Kalamazoo RESA and Clare-Gladwin RESD). It was created as an educational and online resource to help students improve their technology proficiency as they prepare for success in the 21st century. This project was origianlly developed to provide districts and classroom teachers with resources to help students meet or exceed the 8th grade technology proficiency requirements in Michigan, and currently also focuses on helping students build information literacy and digital citizenship skills, and be knowledgable about Internet Safety and Cyberbullying. The development of this resource came at the request of teachers using the initial 21things4teachers.net  site.

The team that created and manages this project consists of:

Carolyn McCarthy, Project Manager, Shiawassee RESD
Jan Harding, Macomb ISD
Jennifer Parker-Moore, Ed.D., Macomb ISD 
Melissa White, retired from Ingham ISD
Tina Tribu, Kalamazoo RESA
Kay Hauck, Clare-Gladwin RESD 

and in memory of Frank Miracola, Macomb ISD
