The MA, Education Technology: Leadership program is for licensed teachers desiring a career path towards being a technology specialist, technology director or technology coach. The program prepares teacher-leaders with the competencies required to improve the quality and effectiveness of instructional programs at a departmental, school, or district level. As learners develop skills that are aligned with the national educational standards and performance indicators as set forth by International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE-C, 2012), they develop and assess the impact of technology-based learning experiences. The Master of Arts in Educational Technology enables each student to qualify for the Technology Specialist Endorsement for the State of Illinois by entitlement upon successful completion of the program.
