Instructional Technology (All Levels): Initial Teacher License

License only, full-time or part-time graduate program

Harness the power of technology for teaching and learning.

Learn how to transform learning for students, including those with disabilities, through the integration of technology into your curriculum.

Discover how to support all learners by creating digital resources that expand and enhance instruction at every grade level. Gain hands-on experience with high-tech tools and a deeper understanding of how students can use technology for learning success. And do all of this while working alongside faculty who are pioneers in the field.

In the today’s classrooms, technology is now fully integrated into the curriculum. As a teacher, this means you have the tools to manage data and enhance learning. Through our graduate program, you’ll become an expert in applying current technology to achieving more results for your students.

Start by building a foundation in 21st-century teaching and learning. Investigate human development, and how new tools can bridge the achievement gap for learners with diverse needs and abilities. Learn how to design curriculum that infuses technology and new media in meaningful ways. In your capstone course, explore ways to construct learning environments where technology facilitates learning.

Translate your new skills to real classrooms. Complete 75 hours of early field experience as well as a full-time student-teaching experience in a Massachusetts school, and graduate after approximately two years.
