Harrisburg University of Science and Technology announced today that the Pennsylvania Department of Education has approved it to provide Instructional Technology Specialist certification.
ITS certification is designed to support the growing use of technology in K-12 education.
HU will offer the ITS course as a concentration under its existing Learning Technologies Master of Science program, a 36-credit-hour program billed as the only one of its kind in Central Pennsylvania.
In addition to technical skills, the ITS program will also teach participants how to guide others in implementing technology. HU noted that the interest and dependence on technology-supported education is increasing in school districts.
