Are you looking to go beyond a master’s degree in order to improve your ability to make a difference in your profession?

Walden University’s Education Specialist (Ed.S.) in Educational Technology online program is designed to help you do just that. 

Whether you are a technology director, instructor, curriculum developer, or consultant, staying current with today’s increased use of technology is a critical component of teaching and learning. This educational technology degree enables you to support a diverse community of learners by effectively integrating technology. Designed with a strong emphasis on critical thinking, this program can help you develop your abilities in instructional design, facilitate learning in a technology environment, and identify emerging technologies for implementation in a wide array of learning environments. In addition, some of the coursework you complete as part of this post-master’s degree in educational technology can apply to a Walden doctoral degree in education, allowing you to earn that degree in less time.

An Education Specialist degree, sometimes referred to as a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (C.A.G.S.), is ideal for educators who want to remain working in the field but who would like to increase their influence and impact on their learning communities.
