The Community For Technology Leaders

American Journal of Computer Science and Information Technology (AJCSIT) is an intercontinental free access, peer reviewed journal. The Graduate Computer Technology Endorsement Certificate may be earned apart from completing the entire Classroom Technology Master’s degree Teachers with this endorsement will not only be prepared to provide leadership capabilities for local, state or national educational technology initiatives, but will also be licensed to teach computer science courses, K-12. Students may apply for the Computer Technology Endorsement from the Ohio Department of Education after completing the 16 hours of coursework identified for this credential.

Computer scientists are, in fact, scientists. They are focused with the theory of computational applications. That means they understand the why” behind computer programs. Using algorithms and advanced mathematics, computer scientists invent new ways to manipulate and transfer information. Computer scientists are generally concerned with software, operating systems and implementation.

Harkening back to the hobbyist era of personal computing in the 1970s, Arduino begins as a project of the Interaction Design Institute, Ivrea, Italy. Each credit card-sized Arduino board consisted of an inexpensive microcontroller and signal connectors which made Arduinos ideal for use in any application connecting to or monitoring the outside world. The Arduino used a Java-based integrated development environment and users could access a library of programs, called Wiring,” that allowed for simplified programming. Arduino soon became the main computer platform of the worldwide Maker” movement.

UAT’s Game Programming degree prepares students to take the controls in their careers. With this prestigious video game programming degree, students develop a broad skill set, and are comfortable with many platforms and languages. Video game programmers develop games for web, console, PC and mobile devices. Video game programming has wide-ranging applications in the entertainment, business, research and training industries.

With the recent advancement in the education industry, the use of computers in education has become relevant. Computers play a great role in helping students learn faster and they also increase the level of creativity of students because of the endless equations they present to a student. Many schools have expanded on their use of computers by creating bigger computer labs. This is a bit expensive for most schools, so most public schools have not enjoyed the benefits of using computer technology in education. Both teachers and students use computers to complete specific tasks. For teachers, they use computers to create graphic illustrations which can help students learn easily, yet students use computers in typing of notes and reading of electronic books which can be downloaded from the internet.
