Graduate Program Arms Future Teachers With Technology Savvy

Education Week, November 4, 1998, p. 6

Marlboro College in Vermont recently unveiled a Master of Arts degree in Internet instruction for students in its graduate education program.

Utilizing an anonymous grant of $1.2 million, the college acquired high-end hardware and software to immerse its graduate students in a one-year course of study. Students conduct much of their study online, using E-mail, the Web, and electronic discussion groups.

While there is an emphasis on becoming fluent in learning new educational technologies, the goal is not to produce technology coordinators. Rather, the program sets out to create education technology leaders who will bring change and a new way of looking at technology to the schools where they will eventually teach.
