    Can anyone recommend a school where I can get a Masters in Educational Technology in Northern California? Would this degree help in my pursuit for a permanent teaching position? Would it allow me a chance to stay connected to the education system if I am unable to find a job teaching? Any insight will help.

    CSU Monterey Bay has such a program, and it's online based! I applied and was accepted a couple years ago, but didn't pursue it for a few reasons. I'm considering re-applying and getting going along this route too... At this point, I don't care if it helps me just in teaching... I just want anything that'll help me in any career.

    Got it! Thanks, I'll look into it. I agree...I feel anything in tech will help (just in case).

    I went to Western Michigan University as an undergrad and was introduced to their Masters of Educational Technology. It's all online. I've been working since Fall of '09 and I'll be done at the end of June. It's great and I'm very pleased with my experience! I like the convenience of not having to sit in a class after a full day of work. All of my professors have been great and very accessible. If you're interested in more info, let me know!

    Not sure if having a master's in educational technology will help you find a job because there are not very many education technology teacher positions. But I would think that it would help you to have a better interview with being able to integrate technology into the classroom. It may give you the edge that you need.
