<edtech.connect> - College of Education

Michigan State University's College of Education is one of the leading colleges in the nation for pursuing a career in education. In 1998, U.S. News and World Report ranked seven of the College's programs in the top ten in the nation. Improving the educational opportunities for K-12 students has been a long-standing priority of the College, as has the pre-service and in-service education of teachers. It is also committed to developing and implementing a highly innovative environment of integrating technology into teaching. Part of this commitment is reflected in the development of a K-12 outreach initiative. This initiative, which involves moving current research in educational technology into the field, has both a wide impact on Michigan's educational community through a videotape series and through technology institutes, as well as a deep impact through consulting with individual school districts around curriculum integration, policy development, professional development, content creation, and through the Advanced Technology Certificate Program for teachers.
