NP Endorsement

For students in the State of Michigan who are K-12 educators, the Educational Technology (NP) Endorsement can be added to either an elementary or secondary certificate. Teachers holding this endorsement are considered well-prepared to teach introductory computer-related classes for which no specific endorsement is needed. These classes include (but are not limited to) — Computers, Computer Literacy, Keyboarding, Word Processing, Computer Applications, Web Design and Introduction to the Internet.

The NP Endorsement Program is based on a set of national standards for advanced programs from the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), the same professional organization that developed the National Education Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T) and for Students (NETS). A panel of educators from higher education and K-12 examined and adapted these standards for the State of Michigan and in 2002 the State Board of Education approved the standards as foundation for all approved programs. The official State of Michigan language on the NP Endorsement documentation can be found here. (.doc file)
