One Great Resource

Using Technology to Support Teaching and Learning

The Ohio Assessments for Educators (OAE) Initial Licensure program assesses the content-area and professional (pedagogical) knowledge of candidates who are seeking initial Ohio educator licensure or adding a new licensure area.

These resources are not only part of the Computer/Technology (Subtests I & II) for endorsement to teach Educational Technology (CTIS) and Career Tech, but are applicable to daily teaching practice, regardless of curriculum, when using technology to support teaching and learning. ~JM & CC
