Computer Technology Endorsement

The Computer Technology Endorsement from the State of Ohio allows you to competently integrate technology in your classroom and teach computer classes in applications such as word processing and spreadsheets.

You can also collaborate and share your technology integration knowledge and skill formally or informally with teachers in your building. The Endorsement could be considered by school districts in filling a position for building level technology facilitator. You cannot teach computer programming with this endorsement, as that endorsement is another set of requirements.

The Endorsement is added to an existing standard teaching license for K-12. 

Admission Requirements

Applicants to the computer technology endorsement should submit the following information in addition to the online application:

  1. Official academic records of all previously attended colleges or universities must be submitted directly from the colleges or universities to the Office of Graduate Admission Processing.
