Today there is much pressure on teachers and schools to incorporate technology more directly in the classroom, particularly in light of “21st century workforce” demands. In addition, schools handle a wider range of student abilities and differences today than ever before. Instructional technology today holds much promise to help meet today's teaching and learning demands in the schools.
Our professional development programs in instructional technology focus on curriculum integration in preK-16 settings, instructional planning and use of novel technology learning tools. The program is targeted toward individuals from varied backgrounds who wish to help educators or learn themselves to design, develop, and incorporate technology more effectively in diverse educational settings (including preK-12, higher education, and informal learning environments).
