The 100% online Master of Arts Technology Education from Ball State University (NCA accredited) is designed primarily to meet the needs of current K-12 teachers licensed in technology education. It is not a program in “educational technology” but instead helps teachers to cover a wide variety of technological subjects. It does not provide initial teacher licensure. Although this program is online, on-campus assistantships with stipends and tuition waivers are available at our Muncie, Indiana, campus.
