Jen Dorman just wrote this post for her Blog… and I had to share! I am currently finishing up this program, and it has been the best learning experience ever! The course designers are amazing (Check them out… you may just recognize a few) and the knowledge and tools that I have taken back to my own classroom are what make this program so meaningful and worthwhile.
To advance a new generation of education technology leaders,
Discovery Education, renowned for its quality content and digital media
services in over half of all US schools, and Wilkes University, a leader
in graduate education, have teamed up to create the online Master of
Science degree in Instructional Media.
To thrive in the 21st century classroom, successful educators are
embracing a new approach to teacher instruction. New tools. New
technologies. A new appreciation for digital media. From Web 2.0 to
digital storytelling, to virtual field trips, the 21st century classroom
has the power to engage and inspire today’s tech savvy students. This
degree provides teachers the tools, knowledge and strategies to be
successful 21st century educators.
