    Are there any sub-$10,000 computer teacher programs?

    I want to combine my work as a teacher with my interests in computers. Ordinary computer science programs do not introduce teaching pedagogy or applications that will interest students, e.g. 3D software, robots, etc. I am looking for a computer science /computer technology program designed for teachers of grades 6-12. I do not care if it is a second BA, certificate, graduate diploma, or Ed.S, but want to earn a credential of some kind without spending more than $10,000.

    I found this list at allEducationSchools, but these all appear to be for-profit schools or really expensive. I'd prefer something that is regionally accredited offering real college undergraduate or graduate credits. Does anyone know of any such program?

    I'm assuming that you're not looking for a plain educational technology program since they tend to focus on using technology to teach instead of how to teach computer science /technology.

    These options might be slightly over $10,000.

    I don't know the price of these programs, but you might want to search for schools with "technical education " or "career and technical education " programs. These brings up a lot more results than "computer science education ."
