Leadership in Technology Integration
LEADERSHIP IN TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION
This 15-credit online certificate program prepares master teachers to become proficient at integrating technology into standards-based curriculum to improve student learning. Candidates become technology leaders in the classroom, school, and district.
The goals of the program are for students to:
- Engage in planning, teaching, and assessment centered around the needs and abilities of students.
- Develop proactive leadership skills for developing a shared vision for educational technology among all education stakeholders, including teachers and support staff, school and district administrators, teacher educators, students, parents, and the community.
Upon successful completion of the program, we expect students will:
- Develop skills for advanced technologies—including e-learning, telecommunications and multimedia-based instruction, tools for instructional management and assessment, and adaptive computer access.
- Engage in technology integration—applying the new science of learning, 21st century skills, and a constructivist approach to teaching and learning, as well as the use of authentic assessment strategies, differentiated instruction and appropriate technology tools to accommodate all learners, including students with special needs.
- Build leadership skills for mentoring, consulting, professional development, and systems change.
REQUIREMENTS (15 CREDITS)
893.508 Technology and the Science of Learning
New technologies are part of the intellectual landscape in which new kinds of knowledge are breaking down the boundaries of previous distinct disciplines. The design and use of new technologies make possible new approaches to learning, new contexts for leaning, new tools to support learning, and new understandings of the dynamics of the learning process itself. This course examines the role of technology relative to the key concepts of active learning, metacognition, and transfer of knowledge from multidisciplinary perspectives on learning. Based on the new science of learning, students will develop and implement technology related strategies that align instructional technology to standards-based instruction, teach problem solving and higher-order thinking skills, promote cooperative learning, and use reflective teaching and inductive approaches to increase student achievement.
