Educational Technology Assistant Associate in Science Degree

The demand for classroom teaching assistants is at a historic high as more and more students qualify for one-to-one assistance through an Individualized Education Plan or IEP.

Eastern Florida State College's Educational Technology Assistant A.S. degree prepares graduates for employment in the growing education paraprofessional field. In addition to teaching assistant positions, coursework prepares students to work as instructional coordinators, substitute teachers and in other positions that provide educational assistance in an instructional setting. The degree also provides supplemental training and potential career advancement opportunities for those currently employed in these occupations. The A.S. is an open access program with admission through EFSC's general application process.

The A.S. degree curriculum includes general education courses, plus content that explores the philosophical, psychological and sociological aspects of teaching all children, including the disadvantaged, the English Language Learner and the disabled. Courses also cover education processes, theories of learning, student evaluation and grading, plus proficiency with educational technology and assistive technology tools.

Classes are available on campus and online and the A.S. degree includes an embedded certificate program. High school students who move on to this EFSC degree after graduation can earn college credit for education courses completed through a Brevard County public high school.
