Master of Science in Information Technology in Education

 The main benefits of the Master of Science in Information Technology in Education Degree Programme to the Sri Lankan education sector.
  • Developing IT literacy and learning how to apply IT in education; the focus is on the technical functions and uses of ICT and on the need for knowledge and representation of the impacts of IT systems as a whole. The emphasis is on training in a range of tools and applications, and increasing teachers' awareness of the opportunities for applying IT to their teaching in the future.
  • Use IT for professional purposes, focusing on improving their subject teaching in order to enrich how they teach with a range of IT applications. This approach often involves teachers in integrating IT to teach specific subject skills and knowledge; beginning to change their methodology in the classroom; and using IT to support their training and professional development. Teachers gain confidence in a number of generic and specialized IT tools that can be applied to the teaching of their subject area. 
  • Infusing IT to improve learning and management of learning. The approach supports active and creative teachers who are able to stimulate and manage the learning of students, integrating a range of preferred learning styles and uses of ICT in achieving their goals. The infusing approach often involves teachers easily integrating different knowledge and skills from other subjects into project-based curricula.Transforming teaching through ICT; teachers regard ICT as so natural and part of the everyday life of schools that they begin to look at the process of teaching and learning in new ways. The emphasis changes from teacher-centred to learning-centred. Teachers, together  with  their  students,  expect  a  continuously  changing  teaching methodology designed to meet individual learning objectives.
