Brandman University, part of the Chapman University system, commenced an innovative re-design of their Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and Administration with Preliminary Administrative Services Credential Program in 2014-2015 with the vision to be a leader in the state of California in preparing “leaders of the future” who are prepared to transform schools in the 21st century. Principals who are 21st century technology leaders model technology use and integrate it in their day-to-day leadership practice on a regular basis. This session will highlight the collaborative development of custom technology badges and the system created to recognize students who achieve mastery in the use of educational technology through their successful integration of technology. Mastery is demonstrated through authentic applied leadership assignments based on the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) Standards for Administrators. Technology Badges are awarded in seven distinct domains; Animated Media, Collaboration, Data Collection, E-Publishing, Learning Management, Print Media and Research & Organization. Students who earn all required technology badges are awarded the “21st Century Leader” badge which is a requirement for successful completion of the program.
