Greetings! As a recent graduate of the MSEd Info Tech Program, I can say with certainty that I received a useful and thorough education that was immediately applicable to my career (even though I don't have what you would call a standard teaching position). As a correspondence school advisory teacher in Fairbanks, AK, I had some trepidation about starting a program that seemed to be geared more towards classroom teachers. After beginning my first class, I quickly realized that the incredible staff at WOU would help to ensure that what I was learning in class would be directly beneficial for me in my own unique work setting. My time in the program has proved invaluable and I would love to answer any questions that you might have, feel free to contact me!
The professional portfolio is one option for meeting the exit requirements for the MSEd: Information Technology program. The portfolio is a reflection of students' understanding of the literature in the field of educational technology, their mastery of the MSEd proficiencies and National Educational Technology Standards, and their ability to synthesize and apply their knowledge in the production of high quality educational materials.
The following are examples of professional portfolios created by recent graduates of the MSEd: Information Technology program.Lisa Hupp's portfolio Lauren Nixon's portfolio Jesse Poole's portfolio

What our students are saying
The Info Tech program provided a wide range of experiences for me - from psychology to communication to Web 2.0 tools and video. Above all, it forced me to synthesize how technology has evolved and is continuing to change our culture. I would be lying if I said I am the same person after I graduated; I simply cannot teach, assess, and communicate with students outside the context of digital tools and multimedia. Technology is the gateway to learning for many students sitting in our K-12 classrooms today. In addition, I found that working simultaneously in the public schools allowed me to implement several of the skills I acquired from the courses. Heck, I would show students all sorts of Web 2.0 tools that I had created or made with another student at WOU. My learning became a part of my teaching which sparked interest and innovation in both my students and colleagues. -Jared M.
