Teachers need to use advanced technology to implement modern curriculum. While they don't need to become computer programmers or software writers, they do need to know how to use modern technology to plan and deliver instruction. The technology specialization of the graduate education program gives teachers the knowledge and skills, as well as the certification, they need to implement technology and to improve educational systems. Graduates can function as leaders of local school district instructional improvement teams, technology planning committees, site-based management teams, building-level management teams, and will also be able to otherwise work to improve instruction in their schools by helping their colleagues implement technology.
Participants who specialize in instructional technology complete the core, six required technology courses, and a culminating experience.
