University of Hawaii offers a Master of Education degree in Educational Technology for students and professionals who want to train children to be technologically literate, and to use emerging technologies to change the classroom and landscape of education. With technology, students and teachers need to be up to date to create educational strategies that best make use of what is available. By teaching students to utilize online and technological resources for learning and education, teachers will be preparing them to function as technologically literate individuals who are capable of utilizing research and information databases and other technology in order to grow as individuals.
Students will learn about technology through the curriculum and its application and utilization in the classroom for improving learning. Those classes include Teaching and Training Technologies, Theory and Practice in Educational Technology, and Instructional Design and Development.
Through the program, students should have demonstrated the necessary educational qualifications and professional qualifications for roles in education and utilization of technology for educational purposes. Those qualifications include the ability to design or adapt relevant learning experiences that incorporate digital tools and resources to promote student learning and creativity, to develop technologically enriched learning environments that enable all students to pursue their individual curiosities and become active participants in setting their own educational goals, managing their own learning, and assessing their own progress, and to model and facilitate effective use of current and emerging digital tools to locate, analyze, educate, and use information resources to support research and learning.
