Florida Tech Master's in Educational Technology
Teach Complex Technology Curriculum with New Materials and Methodology
Becoming a more effective, relevant instructor in today’s rapidly changing technological world requires a thorough understanding of current technologies and the creativity to integrate those concepts into an easy-to-understand classroom curriculum.
The master’s in educational technology at Florida Tech not only prepares graduates to teach technology concepts, but also to understand the theories and trends in the field such as e-learning, massive online open courses (MOOC), educational software, computer-based assessment, and “flipped” classroom teaching strategies.
Teachers with a master’s in educational technology also study effective materials and learning styles to become well-rounded instructors and administrators who inspire and mentor students at any age. The curriculum complements and builds on previous degree program study and classroom teaching experience.
A degree in educational technology is also appropriate for computing students interested in applying their technological knowledge in an educational environment.
Graduate students at Florida Tech are part of a professor-student peer-learning environment where a diverse and experienced team of professors mentors students in a close-knit academic environment. Professors have expertise in computer science, software engineering, mathematics, and science from elementary through post-secondary teaching. They are nationally recognized researchers who support educational technology development, publish books, write papers for top journals in the field and present at international conferences.
