Supplementary Authorization in Computer Concepts and Applications

This authorization is offered through the Curriculum and Instruction: Educational Technology Program  within the Department of Advanced Studies in Education .

The California Commission on Teacher Credentialing offers a supplementary authorization in Computer Concepts and Applications. This authorization allows holders of a Single Subject, Standard Secondary, or Special Secondary Teaching Credential to teach computer-based classes at any grade level (preschool, kindergarten, grades 1-12, and classes organized primarily for adults). This authorization allows holders of a Multiple Subject or Standard Elementary Teaching Credential to teach computer-based classes in grades 9 and below.

To obtain this supplementary authorization, students must earn a grade of C or higher in 20 semester units (or 10 upper-division semester units) of non-remedial coursework that covers the following three areas: Software Evaluation and Selection; Hardware Operation and Functions; and Classroom Uses of Computers. The balance of the semester units may be achieved in any course dealing with computer concepts and applications. EDIT 4170, 4600, 4650, 4710, and 4720 can be used to satisfy partially requirements of this authorization. Additional coursework can be taken from Computer Science, Cognitive Studies, or Educational Technology. Contact the Educational Technology Program Coordinator for advisement.
