Implementing a Computer/Technology Endorsement in a Classroom Technology Master's Program.
Brownell, Gregg; O'Bannon, Blanche; Brownell, Nancy
In the spring of 1998, the Master's program in Classroom Technology at Bowling Green State University (Ohio) was granted conditional approval to grant, as part of the program, the new State of Ohio Department of Education computer/technology endorsement. This paper briefly describes Ohio's change from certification to licensure, the removal of relevant previous certificates (e.g., computer science), and the licensure/endorsement model. Further, the specifics of the computer/technology endorsement as covered in the Classroom Technology Master's program are described, as well as the process of moving from conditional to full approval (which is expected in the winter of 1999). Lastly, the recent OhioSchoolNet (a separate state agency) program of awarding novice, practitioner, and scholar technology certificates to teachers is explained in relation to the state computer/technology endorsement.
