The new Master of Arts in Education: Technology Integration is featured in SCAN!

St. Kate’s is now offering a Master of Arts in Education: Technology Integration.  This new program is featured in this month’s SCAN.

“St. Kate’s new graduate-level program — which plans to offer the choice of a Master of Arts (M.A.) or a certificate — equips teachers with digital skills and an understanding of how to hold the attention of a generation weaned on gadgets. Class topics include computational thinking and computer coding, best practices in 1:1 (one-to- one, a setting in which each student has her or his own digital device) and ethics in the digital age.”
