Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction: Technology Advanced Program for Continuing Professional Education

The Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction: Technology is designed for licensed educators wanting to learn to use technology to improve the success of students along with those individuals who wish to transition to become a technology specialist. This program includes a study of 21st century technology foundations in education.

The curriculum and instruction degree program includes a focus on how to use and develop web tools to improve student learning in the classroom. Other topics that are explored include strategies and integration of productivity software, the use of digital media in education, the development and design of media in educational settings, multimedia instructional strategies, using technology for student assessment, and distance learning in education.

A supervised internship culminates the program; allowing the teacher to shadow an individual in a technology role at their school. The internship experience helps develop the learner‛s understanding of the complexity of being a leader in the school setting. There is also a focus on classroom technology use and training, ranging from development of a vision for technology support to demonstrating practical skills, such as writing a grant, researching funding sources, developing a series of training sessions, and ensuring smooth day-to-day technology integration in teaching.

Geared toward individuals who are already licensed as teachers, this curriculum and instruction degree program does not lead to licensure but may lead to career advancement. Program applicants must submit a copy of a current teaching license or provide evidence of a minimum of one year of teaching experience. In addition, it is essential for students to have access to a K-12 classroom to complete the program assignments.
