Program Overview

The MA in Education Technology: Curriculum and Instruction prepares face-to-face teachers in public and private schools to integrate technology with curriculum, instruction, assessment, and foundations of education. The program is constructed for teachers who teach in a traditional face-to-face classroom and/or a 1:1 environment, and desire to develop theoretical and practical understandings of educational technologies within curricular, instructional, and assessment frameworks. In addition, coursework addresses differentiating instruction using technology, the use of adaptive/assistive tech for all students (with emphasis on students with special needs), building learning communities, using social media effectively, and researching applied learning to their own classrooms. The program is aligned to ISTE-Teaching standards and National Board of Professional Teaching standards.
