The Professional Development Institute, in association with the prestigious University of California San Diego Extension (UCSD), has established an Educational Technology Competency Program. Teachers with educational technology skills and expertise are in demand. More and more schools are adopting and funding new technology to be used in classrooms such as interactive whiteboards, laptops, and tablets such as iPads. Do you have the knowledge you need to effectively use technology in your classroom and integrate it with your existing curriculum?

PDI has eight specifically-designed courses to help you effectively use and integrate technology into your classroom and curriculum. Through PDI's new educational technology competency program, if you take four of the eight technology courses listed below, you will receive an Educational Technology Competency Award of Completion from the University of California San Diego Extension. Upon PDI's verification of satisfactory completion of the requirements, UCSD will mail a certificate to you suitable for framing and display in your classroom or to become part of your professional portfolio.

Review the details below to find out how to get started in this exciting program.

** UCSD and PDI require that you spend a minimum of three weeks in EACH of your online courses. In other words, if you register for two online courses, you will be expected to spend three weeks in each course for a total of six weeks. The timeline begins from the day you register and runs consecutively, not concurrently, when taking multiple courses. Completion paperwork will not be processed until the minimum timeline requirement has been met. Both PDI and UCSD are intent on ensuring that the participant is able to maximize the knowledge gained by meaningful involvement in the program.
