Master of Education in Technology Integration
Our Master in Education online program can teach you to use current and emerging technologies at an in-depth level while exploring such areas as podcasting, web 2.0 technologies, blogs, vlogs, wiki creation and more. Our integrated technology training coursework can help you tap into your students' natural motivations.
As part of your integrated technology training, you will evaluate tools already available within your classroom. In addition, you'll use web 2.0 technologies to create a plan that helps improve your students' skills. By using technology integrated classrooms, you can develop a more dynamic and powerful curriculum that can help you manage student behavior while stimulating, motivating and actively engaging students in learning.
This program meets National Education Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T) and National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).
While participating in this program, you will complete eight required courses and two elective courses in one of two areas of study: Virtual Schools or Differentiated Instruction. Virtual Schools students will learn to effectively design and teach online courses, while Differentiated Instruction students learn how to design instruction for diverse learning styles.
