Nicholas Graves

Greetings! As a recent graduate of the MSEd Info Tech Program, I can say with certainty that I received a useful and thorough education that was immediately applicable to my career (even though I don't have what you would call a standard teaching position). As a correspondence school advisory teacher in Fairbanks, AK, I had some trepidation about starting a program that seemed to be geared more towards classroom teachers. After beginning my first class, I quickly realized that the incredible staff at WOU would help to ensure that what I was learning in class would be directly beneficial for me in my own unique work setting. My time in the program has proved invaluable and I would love to answer any questions that you might have, feel free to contact me!

What our students are saying

The Info Tech program provided a wide range of experiences for me - from psychology to communication to Web 2.0 tools and video. Above all, it forced me to synthesize how technology has evolved and is continuing to change our culture. I would be lying if I said I am the same person after I graduated; I simply cannot teach, assess, and communicate with students outside the context of digital tools and multimedia. Technology is the gateway to learning for many students sitting in our K-12 classrooms today. In addition, I found that working simultaneously in the public schools allowed me to implement several of the skills I acquired from the courses. Heck, I would show students all sorts of Web 2.0 tools that I had created or made with another student at WOU. My learning became a part of my teaching which sparked interest and innovation in both my students and colleagues. -Jared M.
