Projected Job Growth in Instructional Technology

Projected growth in the field of instructional technology is based on  the Bureau of Labor Statistics standard  job titles of Training and Development Specialists, Instructional Coordinators, and Training and Development Mangers, as well as Elementary School, Middle School and High School teachers; Education, Training and Library Workers; and Postsecondary Education Teachers. Given the wide and varied application of Instructional Technology, this is by no means a comprehensive or exhaustive list of occupational projections.

The Projections Central website [4] provided projected growth in number of jobs and percent change in Florida for the 2014-2024 period as shown in the table below. 

A second source, CareerOneStop [5] sponsored by the U. S. Department of Labor, was also used for national projections for the same job titles.  The expected growth in these areas is higher for Florida. This is likely, in part, due to the high population growth of the state in the past five years and expected continued population growth.
