Educational Technology Integrator MEd

IMG_2559 - Version 2Keep authentic student learning at the heart of the digital revolution.

Quality Educational Technology (EdTech) Integration is 30% technology and 70% pedagogy. Whether you consider yourself a tech guru or a tech newbie, we can help you make sure that technology is working for  you and your students instead of the other way around.

In our EdTech Integrator program, you’ll not only gain a New Hampshire state EdTech Integrator certification, you’ll also learn how to be a teacher leader and a master of instructional choices.

  • Enhance your capacity to teach all students well.
  • Explore the social justice implications of technology.
  • Promote creative problem-solving and real-world learning.
  • Foster a strong sense of community rather than isolation for your students.
  • Ensure that technology is used appropriately and in support of higher-order thinking skills, and not just rote tasks.

You’ll learn how to be an EdTech leader in your school, a savvy consumer of technology who can facilitate conversations focused on learning outcomes and the reality of your students’ lives, guiding your colleagues to make wise choices in technology selection and integration.

Course Descriptions

Building Inclusive Classroom Learning Communities 

This course explores face-to-face and online community building tools and strategies as well as facilitation of learning experiences that support all learners, including those with special needs. We will explore the use of technology to allow for new kinds of communities to be formed, including those that connect learners across cultures and connect classrooms to external resources, both digital and human. We will also exlplore the use of social media in the classroom, what it means to be a digital citizen, and how to help students and teachers use technology safely, responsibly and respectfully.

 Tech Tools for All Learners

This course builds a collaborative understanding of ‘next generation’ teaching and learning, its roots and its opportunities. We will explore when and how to use technology-and when not to. This course will help participants identify and assess the resources available to them in their schools as well as how to best use those tools in their own instruction in all content areas in ways that support all leaners (and plan for the careful selection of new resources). Participants will explore methods of developing online portfolios and develop a portfolio demonstrating their use of a wide variety of tools in the classroom. Online Course.

Ed Advocacy & Leadership 

This course builds capacity for instructional and professional community growth and leadership in the student’s concentration area. Participants will examine emerging tools and trends that will impact schools and their communities through their own filed research, review of professional literature, and participation in online learning communities. Participants will collaboratively prepare instructional plans, policies, procedures, and/or budgets demonstrating their understandings of how to best implement and advocate for their technology integration for community development and learning in the classroom and beyond. Online Course.

Instructional Design: Crafting Problem-Based Challenges (Spring 2017)

The course is entirely devoted to Instructional Design, focused on the construction of multiple types of classroom-based and curriculum-connected problems for students to solve. The crafting of these challenges necessitates fluency in a comprehensive set of design tools, all examined and practiced in this course.

Next Generation Teaching & Learning 

Students will work both on their own and collaboratively to explore the various incarnations on experiential learning: project, problem, place, and service learning, as well as how to implement them with modern tools in both face-to-face and virtual environments. Participants will design digital learning experiences as well as methods of formatively and summatively assessing them. Online Course.
