Are you interested in improving your teaching through the application of educational technology? Or are you a technology expert looking for opportunities to learn about education and teaching? If you are, our Education And Technology, EdM program may be for you.
This program aims to meet the needs of two potential candidates: 1) Those in schools seeking to improve their technological and pedagogical knowledge, and 2) those who have the technology experience who wish to explore its application in educational contexts.

This program does NOT lead to NYS teaching certification.
Technology has revolutionized the face of education. Mobile devices, online communities, multimodal composition, social networking, and innovative tools have infiltrated all levels of the PreK-20 educational context. Learning environments must be created to include these emerging technologies in order to better serve the 21st century student. The use of these technologies has created a new framework through which to view learning. It is essential that educators have the ability to create such learning environments for their students. This degree in Education And Technology will provide you with a strong philosophical as well as pedagogical base, connecting both theory and practice for informing the use of teaching tools. This program encourages exploration and sharing of experiences and knowledge, and provides opportunities in which students learn from one another and from practitioners in the field as much as from their professors.
Students are admitted on a rolling basis and may start coursework in either the fall or spring semester.
