Program Details

Lesley’s Advanced Professional Certificate (APC) program gives students the opportunity to work hands-on with new technologies and learn how to implement these technologies into a classroom setting. Courses explore the societal, ethical, and pedagogical issues related to this new technology and internet use both inside and outside a school setting. The program’s coverage of both tangible skills and theoretic knowledge ensure that students will be suited to make good classroom decisions in regards to technology use. Additionally, the coverage of theory makes the program applicable to not just teachers but anyone interested in learning more about technology’s impact on our world today.

Students are required to complete four courses, or 12 credits, in the certificate program. All classes are required and include Art Technology; Web 2.0 for Education; Technology: Impact in society and the schools; and Cyberbullying in Schools: A 21st Century Problem. All courses can be completed online, and the program’s only prerequisite is a bachelor’s degree.

Credits from the APC in Internet and Society can be used toward Lesley’s Individually Designed Masters in Education (M. Ed) degree. Students interested in pursuing their M. Ed degree need to apply for the program separately as acceptance into the APC program does not entitle automatic enrollment into the M. Ed program.
