The Graduate Certificate in Instructional/Educational Technology provides teachers with the knowledge and training to apply technological tools to the learning process.
The Graduate Certificate in Instructional/Educational Technology provides an opportunity for study and professional training and development of the leadership skills necessary to become educational technology specialists in K-12 schools. The certificate requires substantial independent thinking and emphasis is placed on the cultivation of scholarly attitudes and methods while assisting students in meeting the requirements for the State of Florida Teacher Certification. In addition, students will learn the subject matter needed to meet the National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers developed by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), which is being adopted by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
