RESA has a pilot program offering training for MISTAR. RESA is offering this pilot program from January 13th through March 13th. The focus is on teachers. Monarch is a new program for MISTAR. Free SCECHs are available with the usual caveats.

Monarch – MISTAR Teacher Tools Training
Jan 13 – Mar 13, 2020

Teachers are invited to transform their use of MISTAR by participating in our pilot offering of Monarch, an online learning experience for MISTAR teachers.

As a participant, you will complete activities designed to increase your skill and knowledge of MISTAR teacher apps such as Class Attendance, Grade Book, Seating Chart, generating reports, and more. 

Working online from any device at your own time and pace, you will have two months – Jan 13 through March 13, 2020  – to complete the learning activities.

As you finish missions and levels, you will earn digital badges in recognition of your learning. SCECH credit is also available: complete the first two levels to earn 7 SCECHs or complete all three levels to earn 11 SCECHs.  

Monarch is especially beneficial for teachers new to MISTAR, but seasoned teachers will also benefit from participating. Non-teaching staff are welcome to register and will be able to participate as space permits.  

This course is free.

Register here by January 8.
