||K-12 Certificate in Instructional Computing Applications
The K-12 certificate in instructional computing applications is a series of four Instructional
Design and Technology courses designed to prepare inservice and preservice teachers
to meaningfully integrate technology into teaching and learning. The four required
courses (3 credit hours each) are:
- IDT 7061: Technology Integration in the Classroom - IDT 7061 is designed to help the learner effectively integrate specific processes
and technologies (tools) into teaching and learning environments. In this course,
we will explore web 2.0 tools with a focus on lesson planning and technology integration
using commonly accessible equipment and office productivity tools.
- IDT 7062: Introduction to Computer-Based Instruction - IDT 7062 provides students with opportunities to apply instructional design principles
to the creation of technology-enhanced instructional tools. Emphasis is on the use
of multimedia-capable software to create instructional products.
- IDT 7063: Seminar in Instructional Computing - IDT 7063 is designed to examine issues and trends related to instructional technology
in the K-12 classroom.
- IDT 7064: School Change and the Internet - IDT 7064 deals with the issues, processes, and strategies relative to the design,
implementation, and evaluation of Internet technology in schools.
The certificate program is approved by the Tennessee Board of Regents. However, the
certificate is not an endorsement or add-on licensure. After completing the required
coursework and application form, the certificate designation will appear on the your
university transcript. Teachers who have completed the certificate have remained in
their classrooms to become models for technology integration. Other teachers have
leveraged this certificate to become technology integration specialists, such as technology
facilitators, technology coaches, and curriculum integration specialists, within their
schools and districts.
