The Master of Arts in Educational Technology: Curriculum and Instruction program prepares teachers in public and private schools to more effectively integrate technology into their classroom practice. It is constructed for teachers who teach in a traditional face-to-face classroom and/or a 1:1 environment. The program prepares teachers with the competencies required to improve the quality of classroom teaching, and helps them 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 technology for all students (with emphasis on students with special needs), building learning communities, using social media effectively, and applying current research on learning to classrooms. The program is aligned to ISTE-Teaching standards and National Board of Professional Teaching standards.
