Master of Education with a major in Instructional Technology
The Master’s Degree in Instructional Technology prepares candidates to effectively integrate technology into their own teaching practice and to assist other educators in utilizing technology to improve the teaching and learning process. It prepares candidates to model best practices in the use of instructional technologies and to provide high-quality professional learning experiences for others.
For Georgia teachers, the MEd leads to S-5 certification (service field) in Instructional Technology and will also increase your T-4 certification to a T-5. To qualify for a certificate upgrade and salary increase (based upon the salary structure of your employing school system), you must pass the GACE assessment in Instructional Technology developed by the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GaPSC) and add the new field to your certificate.
This program is designed to meet the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GPSC) Instructional Technology Standards for receipt of an S-5 (MEd). Nationally, the MEd in Instructional Technology is aligned to ISTE Standards for Technology Coaches developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).
