Teachers as Designers of Technology, Pedagogy, and Content (TPACK)


DigitalClassroomTeaching in a digital age requires a whole new layer of knowledge and expertise. TPACK – Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge – is a framework that helps teachers evaluate how their knowledge domains intersect to create a complex, situated form of knowledge in order to effectively teach and engage students with technology.  Introduced by Dr. Punya Mishra & Dr. Matthew J. Koehler in 2006, the framework has been widely cited and has been described as being “the most significant advancement in the area of technology integration in the past 25 years.” In this webinar for the edWeb.net Digital Classroom community, Dr. Mishra and Dr. Koehler provided an overview of TPACK, including a description of the framework and the theory behind it and examples of teaching approaches based upon the framework.  They also discussed applying TPACK in planning and delivery of learning experiences that integrate technology to transform student learning, and highlighted how their thinking around TPACK has evolved.  View the webinar to learn how TPACK can help you evaluate your knowledge around pedagogy, content, and technology to design innovative learning experiences for students.
