Education technology is reshaping the field. Leadership in integrating technology can put you at the forefront of interactive learning — and help you make a difference in people’s lives.

The Johns Hopkins School of Education’s programs in education technology equip our students with advanced skills in instructional design, educational technology integration, and e-learning development, which are in high demand in modern educational institutions and organizations.

With the growing emphasis on online learning and training, the demand for the learning design specialists is increasing. Learning specialists often design creative and interactive learning experiences attractive to organizations across many industries, along with the opportunity to positively impact learning outcomes. They can work as instructional designers, educational technology specialists, e-learning developers, technology integration coaches, curriculum developers, online educators, and educational consultants. They may also find roles in educational software development, educational media production, and technology-related leadership positions in educational institutions.

Thinking Deeply About Online Learning

The leader of the DALET program at the Johns Hopkins School of Education, James Diamond, has some sobering news: Technology-wise there is a great “reckoning” coming for the American educational system. It will require deep thinking, hard choices, and significant short- and long-term investments in online learning. But the potential outweighs problems: “For the future, we must ensure that all our children have what they need to succeed, face-to-face and online,” Diamond says.
