Graduate Certificate - Game-Based Teaching with Technology

Format: Online

Program Description:

While this five-course online graduate certificate is geared towards Pre-K-12 teachers who want an additional Massachusetts license in instructional technology, anyone who works in a learning setting and wants to expand their pedagogy by converting their curriculum into a curricular game and meets the program requirements is welcome in the program.


The six coverage areas required by DESE for an additional license in instructional technology are embedded into the coursework. Students who already have an initial license in Massachusetts in another subject area can apply directly to DESE for an additional license in instructional technology after earning the certificate. Because instructional technology is a license for all grade levels, if a student did not take a course that covers K-12 development previously, an additional class,
EDC G 644 Dvlp Stgs:Chld-Adlsc, can be taken to satisfy that requirement for the additional license.
