Master of Educational Technology

The evolution of communications, software and computer technology has changed education and the perception of a world class education must involve technology. Best practices for student learning must involve innovative instructional strategies such as: blended or flipped classrooms, the use of open-source, web-based resources, collaborative tools, video resources and mobile devices. Schools across the nation are turning to technology to more effectively engage learners; improve performance; and improve the quality of learning experiences.
