Learn about digitally-rich teaching and learning as part of courses and programs that can lead to additional credentials – and better position you as a leader in this area for your school.
New York State does not require K-12 teachers to have a specific certification in order to use technology in their teaching or serve as an technology instructional coach. However, NYS has recently approved an Advanced Certificate in Digitally-Rich Teaching at the University of Rochester’s Warner School of Education, thus providing another option for a higher education credential demonstrating expertise in this area.
