Specialization in Educational Technology program at this location:
Leysin in Switzerland at The Leysin American School
This Master of Education (M.Ed.) program is designed to raise the competencies of educators in all fields by incorporating technology into schools and classroom settings to help students achieve their highest potential and to prepare for a rapidly changing world. Participants will develop specific competencies in the use of computer-mediated communications, management and instructional technologies of educators and support personnel. The aim in developing these specific competencies will ultimately be to enhance student learning.
The focus will be on preparing both educators and students to function in knowledge-based environments in the global community. The degree activities will address technology in the classroom as well as the related functions in the school, including how students not only use technology but also how to leverage technology to have a healthy, informed lifestyle.
This program can be completed in 13 months or over an extended period of time to meet your personal requirements. To follow a program of studies different from what is on the program flier, please write to Richard Pacheco (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
