Oct. 31, 2013: Technology can be a powerful teaching tool. But in this constantly changing digital age, it’s hard to keep up with all the software, and how to use it to your advantage in the classroom.

The workshop is sponsored by Clarke University’s Online MAE program. Clarke announced in October that its highly respected Master of Arts in Education (MAE) will be offered through online delivery beginning in the summer of 2014.
This program will enable teachers who wish to continue their education beyond the bachelor’s level to have the opportunity to do so in a program that is well-regarded, contemporary and convenient.
"We are thrilled to announce a completely online Master of Arts in Education at Clarke,” said Paula Schmidt, chair and associate professor of education at Clarke. “By completing an advanced degree through Clarke's online format, elementary and secondary teachers will have access to courses that are convenient, affordable and accessible from anywhere. Most importantly, the online format will allow more teachers the opportunity to earn an MAE from a program that is recognized for its high quality and is a noted leader in teacher preparation."
