This is a Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) approved program of study for instructional technology. It is generally appropriate for educators who are currently licensed as teachers in states outside of Massachusetts. If you are not currently licensed as a teacher, please contact your local Department of Education to determine if this program is recommended for you.

The M.Ed. in Educational Technology is an online, non-licensure program that begins with three required core courses and ends with a capstone course. The core courses provide foundational and critical training in assessment and integrating technologies into curricula and meet Title II goals in developing highly trained educators in technology. With a broad range of electives in technology as well as mathematics, science, teaching English to speakers of other languages, and literacy, participants have the opportunity to develop an individualized program of study that best fits their professional needs. In the capstone course, students synthesize knowledge gained throughout the program.
