Touro College GST Prepares Educators to Teach Computer Science December 15, 2015

Touro College GST Prepares Educators to Teach Computer Science, Manhattan, New York

New York City mayor Bill DiBlasio recently announced an initiative that ensures every child attending public school will be exposed to computer science at every level of education. Over the next 10 years, public schools in the city will be required to offer computer science classes to all children in grades K-12. The goal of the initiative is to begin prepping students to enter a technology-focused job market. To make this program a success, New York City teachers will need to become more tech-savvy themselves. And the Instructional Technology Program at Touro College Graduate School of Technology will help them do it.

Touro’s Instructional Technology Program, also known as ITP, is one of the only programs in the city that prepares educators to successfully teach computer science to students of all aptitudes. Since the DiBlasio Initiative is geared toward students in all grades, it’s essential for educators to be prepared to teach and manage computer science classes at each level.

There are two tracks available to graduate students who enroll in Touro’s ITP program: the Corporate Trainer track and the Teacher Certification track. The Corporate Trainer track prepares students to work as corporate trainers, instructional designers, or staff developers. Meanwhile, students who enroll in the Teacher Certification track of the ITP Program obtain the skills and knowledge they need to effectively integrate technology into their classrooms. Certification track students will gain the skills they need to teach programming in Prof. Irina Berman's popular course, Programming in the Classroom. Both tracks lead to a Master of Science in Instructional Technology.

If you would like to learn more about the DiBlasio Initiative, continuing education, or earning a Masters in technology, be sure to contact Touro College Graduate School of Technology online or at the following:
