MEd: Curriculum and Instruction – Educational Technology
HBU Online Learning Program
The Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with specialization in Educational Technology program provides students with the tools and experience they need to utilize technology as a tool for teaching and learning. Students do not have to be technology experts to enter this program. Each course will provide the scaffolding for each student so that they are successful integrators and users of technology. Students in this program will progress through 21 hours of technology related coursework. Each of the courses requires the student to create technology rich lessons and units of instruction that can be applied directly to their classroom. They will be challenged to become school leaders in the area of technology integration and curriculum innovation. Each student will create an electronic portfolio that will follow them throughout their 36 hour program which will include artifacts and projects from their coursework such as: stop motion animation, web 2.0 tools, digital storytelling, podcasting, website building, and blogging.
Graduates from this program often move on to be instructional leaders on their campuses or in their school districts, but they are also equipped to be 21st Century Teachers. For those with 3 years of teaching as a certified teacher at an accredited school, there is the additional possibility of earning the Master Technology Teacher certification.
HBU offers students a higher education through its online Undergraduate and Graduate programs. By combining faith, reason, and liberal arts into one core curriculum, we’ve created an education that goes further than most.
An education that’s based not only on technical training, but the teachings of Christ, reason, and the past successes and failures of humanity. An education that puts our students on the fast track to being leaders, both in their careers and in their communities. HBU strives to send its students out into the world with a better understanding of how to live a fulfilling, accomplished, and righteous life.
