Hello Brandon and family,
I have completed my Master degree in Curriculum, Instruction and Technology in the Classroom at the University of Phoenix. The cost was more then in Canada, but still very reasonable.
I just checked the online at UofP and have not seen my program being offered.
Hi Brandon - I will finish my Master's this spring through the University of Nebraska at Kearney in instructional technology. Great program, well focused, flexible and I fairly priced.
I just finished my M.S. in Ed Tech from California State University, Fullerton. It's a state university - so theoretically, the cost is supposed to be affordable. However, for out of state residents the tuition is more. The best part of this program is that the courses are applicable and relevant for educators who are interested in integrating technology into the curriculum. This program is done completely online but you are not an island. The instructors require collaborative learning via wikis and blogs. They also use GoogleDocs, Skype, and VoiceThread as a means to collaborate and share information. BlackBoard is the medium used for weekly class discussions. As a busy educator, this program was perfect for me. They have an accelerated program where I believe you can finish your masters in one year, but you are taking classes during the winter and summer sessions. I spread my classes out because I needed the break from school and "school"...so it took me two and a half years. But I feel that this program has prepared me with the tools and skills to be an effective teacher of technology. =) I've uploaded a link to a more detailed description of the program.
If you're interested, please let me know. I can put you in touch with my graduate advisor who is AWESOME!
