Sixth Year in Instructional Technologies & Digital Media Literacy
UNH's new 6th Year Certificate in Instructional Technologies & Digital Media Literacy (IT&DML) is designed for licensed teachers in the state of CT who: understand that Twenty-first Century teachers must embrace and utilize the technological, cultural, and sociological changes that undergird a differently-connected society and want to advance in their careers but do not wish to leave active teaching at the P-12 level. The program is specifically designed to prepare these teachers with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions needed to effectively and authentically embed instructional technologies into all content areas, for all students.
