Full Sail Real World Education (http://www.fullsail.com) announces their Education Media Design and Technology (EMDT) Master’s Degree, a 12-month online program packed with cutting-edge curriculum and technology. This innovative, one-of-a-kind degree serves as one of two Master’s Degrees currently available to bring Full Sail’s total degree offerings to 13 within the entertainment media industry. The EMDT degree tailors to creating and developing future leaders in education and corporate training fields.
“A 21st century curriculum for the 21st century learner,” said Holly Ludgate, Ed.D, Full Sail’s Program Director for EMDT. The EMDT degree spans across several areas of technology, education, design, corporate training and theoretical perspectives through a custom-built learning management system.
“Whether your passion is in the K-12 setting as an educator, or a corporate trainer wanting to learn new strategies to engage your audience, this multi-faceted degree will provide a foundation necessary to meet the needs of the students and workers of today and tomorrow,” added Ludgate. “This degree will give you hands-on experience of creating, tailoring and implementing effective uses of technology in your workplace.”
Ludgate will be at the Flordia Educational Technology Conference (FETC) on behalf of Full Sail from January 22 – 25 at the Orange County Convention Center. The annual conference brings educators together to plan the future of technology for their schools and districts. “At FETC, educators are brought together to discuss how to bring the technology that students are using at home into the classroom,” said Ludgate. “Through the EMDT degree, educators will learn how to use the technology and implement it into their curriculum, and having the opportunity to discuss it with them first-hand is invaluable.”
