The MA cohort provides an opportunity to study as part of a community of educators for the entire program.
The program is targeted for middle and high school teachers but often includes students from elementary schools, higher ed and industry as well.

"To sum up my experience, I would analogize by saying that I came into the program like a regular old table knife when it comes to technology. I’m leaving as a
professional chef’s blade, able to cut quickly and precisely and I know that
technology in the classroom is not only the inevitable future but the exciting
future." Kyle (Cohort 5)
