  • 19. Testimonials of Graduates
    When asked by colleagues
    about the MAIT program,
    I responded "I learned more
    about technology than I could
    possibly ever use in the
    classroom in my teaching
    career." Now, three years later,
    I am applying much of
    what I learned in the MAIT

  • 20. Testimonials of Graduates
    I entered the MAIT program as a classroom Language Arts teacher with more than thirty years experience and was soon delighted with my choice. I found the classes stimulating, my instructors talented and accessible, and my classmates enthusiastic and bright. What I’ve learned in the MAIT program has enabled me successfully infuse technology into my curriculum and become a valuable resource for my peers.
