Master of Science in Leadership in Learning Technology

Technology is transforming the classroom. Lead the way.

Everyone learns differently, which is what makes tech-powered teaching so rewarding. Educators around the world are integrating technology into their lesson plans. In fact, 75% of teachers surveyed indicate that tech has had an extremely or mostly positive impact on education, and 77% said it has made their jobs easier.*

The power of learning technology isn’t limited to the school system, however. Fortune 500 companies are also using technology to create a business advantage — from niche microlearning to distributed learning and gamification.

Whether for classrooms or corporations, technology helps make learning possible. You can make it personal. Now is the time to start building your leadership expertise.

Why earn your online master’s in leadership in learning technology?

Researchers in engineering and digital arts created an Observation Learning System (OBSY) to demonstrate the impact tech-infused learning has on students. They were able to prove that children, regardless of gender, using the OBSY tool were noticeably more engaged and experienced greater learning outcomes compared to a control class that did not use the OBSY platform.*

Personalized learning paired with artificial intelligence, machine learning, augmented reality, and virtual reality can determine the connection a student has with a certain subject. Your online Master of Science in Leadership in Learning Technology will introduce you to the relationship between technology and thought processing and show you how to design tools that appeal to each individual learning style.

What can you do with your degree?

Policymakers and researchers recognize that modern technology is transforming education.* For example, a recent study performed by HTC demonstrated that students who learned via VR-enhanced methods achieved an average of 93% on test scores versus 73% achieved by those who had not. This increased awareness has caused demand for professionals specialized in learning technology to increase as well.

With your master’s in leadership in learning technology, you can develop the skills to pursue leadership roles in learning development teams or in the technology department of private and public organizations and push the education envelope further.

New technology goes to market fairly consistently — whether it’s an app update, program release, or device launch, each has a specific purpose and user in mind.

Our curriculum is designed to help you evaluate new technology and determine if specific individuals can benefit from using it — either for technology-enhanced learning or as a training tool.

By the end of your degree, you won’t just know how technology impacts learning, you’ll know how to integrate it to ensure that it does.

These courses will get you there:

  • Emerging Technologies in Learning
  • Managing the Learning Ecosystem
  • Rethinking Learning Ecosystem Designs

People are different. How they learn should be, too.

Learning technology is less about the programs and more about the people who use them — specifically, how they use them.

That’s because different variables contribute to everyone’s learning styles — backgrounds, beliefs, and more. It’s important to take this knowledge and apply it when integrating new technology into your organization or school. This requires strong leadership and an inclusive vision that accommodates all learning styles.

We can show you how it’s done.

Study with us, and you can learn to:

  • Integrate emerging technologies to enhance learning in organizations and schools
  • Analyze individual learning styles and pair technology to match students’ interests
  • Manage technology-integrated learning landscapes and future-ready learning ecosystems
