Abstract: Graduate programs provide a needed opportunity to educate our future administrators on the practical and pedagogical use of technology in education. Preparing administrators to lead with technology is of great concern to the continued growth and development of meaningful 21st Century learning experiences in schools. This paper will explore technology policy and practice as embedded within the design of graduate degree programs in educational administration. Two primary points are addressed. First, how are these programs influenced by state certification requirements? Second, do related courses reflect a deeper understanding of technology use in schools, and if so, how?
