M.Ed. in Educational Technology and MLIS in School LIbrary
The Master of Education degree in Educational Technology is appropriate for teachers who wish to develop greater sophistication with technologies and want to use them effectively in their classrooms. It is also an excellent choice for those who want to develop skills in fields such as instructional design, corporate training, multimedia production, web development, administration of technology centers, and other positions that involve the instructional application of information and communications technologies. This is an entirely online degree program.
Students with an existing Ohio teaching license may obtain the computer/technology endorsement with the M.Ed. degree in Educational Technology by completing specific courses and a 100-hour practicum. The endorsement allows teachers to teach computer applications in the classroom or assume technology leadership positions in a school or at the district level. The endorsement cannot be obtained as a stand-alone license.
Students have the opportunity to complete a dual degree program with the M.Ed. degree in Educational Technology and the MLIS degree in School Library Media K-12. A separate application must be submitted for each program. Students can view admission requirements for each program on their respective catalog pages.
The M.Ed./MLIS dual degree program leads to multi-age initial licensure in school library media. This program prepares students to work in all types of libraries, including school libraries. The program of study includes professional educational requirements, along with library science and educational technology courses.
The Computer Science and the Computer Technology endorsements have received national accreditation from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), the professional organization that reviews licensure programs for the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
