Transcript of Copy of TPACK

Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
TPACK Framework - more than learning the basic skills
i.e. Workshops are ill-suited to help teachers integrate technology into the classroom to teach students effectively
Applying the Framework
Learning basic skills does not mean good teaching
Teachers need to be trained & acquire competency with hardware
Approaches --> provide teachers with experiences involving real educational problems to be solved by technology
Technology Knowledge (TK)
Problems for Teachers
1. Technology changing at a rapid rate
2. Inappropriate design of software - business
3. Context-neutral approaches - not specific subject
4. What not how
Formal IT coursework -> inability to integrate
technology into the classroom
Digital Tools
Includes knowledge of....
Content Knowledge (CK)
Conceptual Framework
Knowledge about accepted ways of developing knowledge
"Command of the Subject"
Knowledge About....
Pedagogical Knowledge (PK)
How students learn
Teaching approaches
Methods of assessment
Knowledge of theories about learning
Pedagogical Content Knowledge
Knowledge of....
What makes a subject difficult and easy to learn
Common misconceptions
Likely preconceptions
Digital animation
Technological Content Knowledge (TCK)
Viewing affordances and constraints of technology as an enabler of different teaching methods
Technological Pedagogical Knowledge (TPK)
TPK becomes particularly important because most popular software programs are not designed for educational purposes.
Rejecting functional fixedness

Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK)
Content Knowledge
Pedagogical Knowledge
Technological Knowledge
An understanding of the complexity of relationships between students, teachers, content, practices and technologies
Requires that teachers understand technology enough to apply it, recognize when technology can assist or interfere with the achievement of a goal, and continually adapt to changes in technology
The important thing in science is not so much to obtain new facts as to discover new ways of thinking about them.
-Sir William Henry Bragg
The Need for TPCK
Using Technology in The Classroom
A Framework for Teacher
Knowledge for Technology
Content Knowledge and Pedagogical
Classroom Knowledge
Pedagogical Content
Previously, either content or pedagogy dominated
A relationship between Content and Pedagogy is necessary
PCK is a blend of two bodies of knowledge
The use of PCK allows educators to present information in a way that will be easy for others to understand
Making the jump
Technology Then
Overhead Projectors
Charts and Graphs
Technology Now
Smart boards
Technology Now
Technology is constantly changing
Teachers need to be educated
Need for a vision
Need for theories
Applying TPCK in the Classroom
Emphases is placed on learning by doing, and less so on overt lecturing and traditional teaching
