For those interested in adding a specialization to their resume, the online Graduate Certificate program in School Technology Leadership is a great option to make you a more competitive and effective leader. In five courses (15 credit hours) – taken in as little as one year – school leaders can dramatically deepen their ability to lead their school systems into a digital, global era.
Students will learn everything from a deeper understanding of the global educational context, to how to make effective hiring decisions for technology-savvy teachers, to the elements of leadership in 1-1 computing environments, to the legal and policy structures critical for reform. Students also will be exposed to a global network of similiarly-minded educational leaders and will form a personal learning network that will serve them well into the future.
From Paducah to Pretoria, our schools are facing a massive wave of technologically-driven change that requires leaders to be able to understand, plan, and implement a very different foundation for our children’s future. The courses in the Graduate Certificate, infused throughout all of the School Technology Leadership programs, provide a platform to gain those leadership abilities in your own practice.
