The need to prepare educators for the ongoing evolution of digital learning and the ever-expanding use of technology in the classroom is only going to increase. Now is the ideal time to get the education necessary to become the technological leader your school or district needs. Concordia’s MEd in Educational Technology and Learning Design: K-12 Education program will teach you how to thoughtfully weave technology into the curriculum, facilitate adoption, and assess the impact on students. Through coursework aligned with the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards for education and educators, this fully online program will prepare you to evaluate and recommend technologies for the K-12 classroom and serve as a valuable resource for your school or district.

Designed for a future where technology is increasingly relied on in schools, our MEd in Educational Technology and Learning Design: K-12 Education program will give you a comprehensive understanding of how to create learning environments that optimize the use of technologies. Career-focused courses will explore theories and emerging issues about the integration of technologies while also fostering proficiency at researching and evaluating those technologies through the lens of cultural and spiritual equity.
