Instructional Technology and Resources
During the last 15 years, the teaching profession has moved rapidly in the area of educational technology. Whether the concentration is in preschool, elementary, secondary or special education, teachers must keep up with fast-moving, computer-based technology. Educators must be skilled and literate in educational technology. The UE School of Education prepares its students for the digital learning environment in the following ways:
UE has two Promethean© Boards and 10 Promethean© Tablets for student use.
