Program overview

Even before this pandemic, schools around the world were starting to incorporating tablets and other devices into the classroom to transform teaching practices and deliver more engaging, interactive learning.  With COVID-19, online learning has become a necessity in most K-12 schools – at least for some of the time.  Learn how to leverage digital technologies both within a K-12 classroom and remotely by pursuing Warner’s Advanced Certificate in Digitally-Rich Teaching in K-12 Schools – one of only a few programs of its kind in the country – whether as a stand-alone program or in conjunction with other Warner degree programs.

This credential will enable you to better serve your students today, and also make you stand out as a K-12 educator and position you to lead technology innovations in your school in the future.

Key program features

  • Combining Theory and Practice: Includes both coursework and practicum experiences focusing on how to capitalize on digital technologies in K-12 school.
  •  Rich Experiences as Learners: Students engage as a learner in innovative digitally-rich learning activities – both online, and face-to-face (when possible!) – to personally experience their power and limitations.
  • Flexible: Program can be customized to be most relevant to your school setting and role, and to leverage courses taken in prior or concurrent programs.
  • Fully Online Option:  If desired, all required and elective courses in these programs can be taken fully online (meeting weekly in synchronous online sessions). 


  • For current K-12 educators or students concurrently enrolled in a teacher education program.
