The Master of Arts in Education and Innovation is so important because it addresses the conundrums in education head on.

The vast majority of kindergarteners today are going to have jobs that don't exist today. So we are, as educators, trying to prepare students for the unknown. How do we do that? Webster's program addresses this directly by including courses in innovation, globalization, mindfulness, creativity, higher order thinking skills, collaboration, equipping educators with skills and tools to equip their students and better prepare them for this unknown future.

The degree itself -- it's for the educator who is interested in rethinking how we construct learning environments and how we meet the needs of all kinds of learners, regardless of their background and the spaces from which they come.

For example, it might be a teacher who is thinking about how do I ramp up my curriculum in a modern way and maybe infuse more technology, but I don't want to be a technologist.

I want to use technology in pedagogy. I want to use technology and then connect it to some of maybe the larger social challenges that we face.
