With an EdS in Educational Technology, you can develop and lead technology-supported solutions to learning challenges in the PreK–12 classroom.
Educational technology is changing the way we learn everywhere—from traditional kindergarten to graduate classrooms, major corporations, small businesses, and hospitals. With an Education Specialist (EdS) degree in Educational Technology, you can initiate change in your classroom, at your school, or in your district.
In this online Education Specialist degree program, you will:
- Learn to apply the latest technologies to improve instruction and learning across a wide range of learning environments.
- Integrate the latest technologies and instructional design principles to bring about transformative change.
- Benefit from program outcomes informed by Association for Educational Communications and Technology (AECT) standards.
- Prepare to conduct research on local problems in a rapidly changing field.
An innovative approach
With our innovative Lifelong Learner Pathway, you can start in one doctoral or post-master’s degree program and move to another degree program to advance your career quickly and more affordably. You may wish to earn a post-master’s certificate in Educational Technology or apply credits toward our Doctor of Education (EdD) with a specialization in Educational Technology or our PhD in Education program with a specialization in Educational Technology. Because EdS students take the same initial courses as EdD and PhD in Education students, you can move into another program without starting over, saving you time and money. See how it works.
An EdS degree can dramatically impact your salary and career as an educator-leader in less time, and at a lower cost, than it takes to earn a Doctor of Education (EdD) or PhD in Education. However, the innovative structure of our Lifelong Learner Pathway allows you to lay the groundwork for your doctorate if you later choose to pursue it. As an EdS student, you will take the same initial courses as EdD and PhD in Education students, where you exchange ideas and engage in advanced graduate coursework. If you are inspired to earn your doctorate, you can transfer seamlessly into the EdD program with a specialization in Educational Technology without starting over, saving you time and money.
