What You Learn
The basic tenet of the Teacher Leader MA with Instructional Technology endorsement is to empower you to leverage teacher leadership skills to improve the use of technology in your classroom, school, and district. Through research, data collection, assessment, and practice, you will learn to effectively identify and address important technology competencies, research-based practices, and new technology tools and resources to improve your own technology expertise, and to lead others in using appropriate technology, to improve student learning and teacher productivity.
How You Learn
This is fully online cohort. Face-to-face class meetings are not required. You will log in to the online classroom to participate in online activities which may include webinars, chats, and/or group discussions/activities, and to access materials and complete assignments electronically. You will finish one course every 7 and one-half weeks. Following this schedule, you will complete the program in approximately 20 months.
Upon completion of this program, students will have earned a Teacher Leader Master of Arts in Education degree and an endorsement in Instructional Computer Technology. There is no PRAXIS required to earn this endorsement. You will enhance your classroom technology knowledge and skills, be qualified to teach computer-related courses, serve as a technology resource teacher, or become a school, district, or state technology leader. You would also be qualified for certain types of instructional technology-related positions outside of P-12 schools.
