Welcome to the UTB
Master Technology Teacher (MTT) Certification Program

The purpose of this site is twofold:

  • an information source for teachers interested in our MTT certification program
  • a resource for students who are in the Master Technology Teacher certification program and educators interested in learning more about technology integration

The Master Technology Teacher is a State Board of Educator Certification (SBEC) approved certificate. This certification program is designed to offer candidates an opportunity to further their studies while becoming technology mentors at the campus and district level.

MTT certification will prepare candidates to:

  • Provide instructional leadership in technology;
  • Mentor colleagues as they implement technology-based instruction;
  • Provide professional development at their district/campus; and,
  • Assist the district’s special education department with the implementation of computer-related “Assistive Technology.”
