In this course, we will provide an introduction to educational technology that aligns to state and national standards in technology integration. Guided by the ISTE Standards for Educators and Students as well as the Massachusetts Digital Literacy and Computer Science standards, we will explore the many ways that technology impacts learning and how educators can leverage technology to prepare students to survive and thrive in an increasing technology-enhanced world.

This course will examine what it means to thoughtfully and effectively integrate technology into all forms of learning – in person, hybrid and fully remote. We will examine lessons learned over the past two years and plan for a future that uses technology to support learning in many forms. This course will be fully online, with synchronous online sessions and active asynchronous work that features modeling technology that teachers can immediately integrate into their practice.

This course includes a pre-practicum field-based experience.


This course may be taken either as part of a Licensure Program or as an individual course for PDPs. Graduate Credit through Fitchburg State University is available at additional cost; Master’s Degree and CAGS options are available.
