K-12 Certificate in Instructional Computing Applications
  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.

Note: If you are already enrolled in any degree program, you do not need to complete the application process. Instead you will need to submit a Change of Status Application.
