An Analysis of Corporate Technology Certification Programs
Abstract: Corporate Education Certification Programs (CECPs) are created by companies to credential educators in their products. These CECPs can influence not only the technology being used in the classroom but also students’ preference for using certain types and brands of technologies long after they have graduated, and those influences have roots in the educational technology marketplace. In response, this study will use the Technological, Pedagogical, and Content Knowledge framework to analyze the knowledge bases being emphasized by CECPs. The paper will include a report of its finding by knowledge base along with recommendations for teacher educators.
