Program Details

Western Michigan University offers a Master of Arts degree in Educational Technology for certified educators interested in developing understanding of the array of tools that teachers can utilize to supplement educational curricula. The program is geared towards teachers with intermediate technology competencies who want to move into technological development roles. In order to do that, students should develop their teaching ability, learning ability, and understand the organizational issues involved in technological development in the classroom. Through the program, students should develop their ability to utilize leadership in developing educational policy, develop their ability to utilize various forms of educational technology, and work to integrate technology into the classroom. Students interested in joining the program should possess a bachelor’s degree and a teaching certificate.

Students will learn about technology through 33 credit hours as part of the curriculum and its application and utilization in the classroom for improving learning. Those classes include concepts and models of learning and teaching, computers in the classroom and the curriculum, and supervision of teaching and learning in educational technology.

Successful graduates should be able to exhibit 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.
