Educational Technology Certificate: Merging Instructional Technology and Emerging Technologies
With an ever-increasing adult student population seeking to update and improve knowledge, skills, and abilities it is vital those in the instructional technology field integrate emerging technologies more thoughtfully into instructional technology settings. Understanding the conflict or disconnect between emerging technologies and adult education and training environments will lessen or mitigate the divorce between instructional technology and participatory culture and learning. The venue to link those in the instructional technology field with the emerging technologies of our digital technology age is an Educational Technology Certificate through an educational lens. My cognate project "Educational Technology Certificate: Merging Instructional Technology and Emerging Technologies" is an opportunity for those in the instructional technology field to nourish a vision and ideological sense to learning, knowledge, and literacy in our emerging technologies digital technology age.
