Educational Technology (All Levels): Initial Teacher License in Instructional Technology

Master of Education (M.Ed.), on-campus graduate program

Prepare creative, confident problem-solvers.

In today’s schools, technology is now fully integrated into the classroom. As a teacher or technology specialist, you can make a meaningful impact by applying your knowledge of technology to support all learners.

Through Lesley's interactive, mostly online master's degree program, gain direct experience using a range of digital media for education.

Start by building a foundation in 21st-century teaching and learning. Explore human development, and how new tools can bridge the achievement gap for learners with diverse learning needs. Learn how to design curriculum that infuses technology and new media in meaningful ways. And through elective courses, develop an individualized program of study that fits your professional needs.

In your capstone course, learn how to transform teacher-centered classrooms into student-focused learning environments. Finish your program with a student-teaching experience, and leave ready to step into a classroom or school technology position.
