  • 1. The TPACK Framework
    A contextual look into each domain of the framework.
    Destiney Ross
    ECI 716
  • 2. …some background INFO
    In 1986, Lee Shulman analyzed the combination of pedagogical and content knowledge (PCK) that teachers should possess
    In 2000, technology knowledge was added as another component that teachers should possess
    In 2006, P. Mishra and M. Koehler provided theory behind the union of all three domains, yielding the TPACK Framework
  • 3. What does this have to do with me, as a teacher?
  • 4. But WAIT there’s more…
    The guy in the video discussed the three main domains (content, pedagogy and technology) but he failed to mention the domains created from their union:
    • Technological content knowledge (TCK)
    • 5. Pedagogical content knowledge (PCK)
    • 6. Technological pedagogical knowledge (TPK)
    • 7. Technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPCK or “TPACK”)
  • Here’s what it looks like
  • 8. I was understanding until you added the overlapping domains…
    Let’s take a closer look into all of the domains, shall we?
  • 9. Content Knowledge
    What you know about the subject matter that you teach.
    For example, as math teachers, we know a range of information such as arithmetic reasoning, geometric properties, postulates and theories.
  • 10. Pedagogical Knowledge
    The teaching methods and strategies that you use (or, how you teach).
    For example, you may use the exploratory approachwhen introducing a new concept while another teacher uses an expository approach.
  • 11. Technological Knowledge
    What you know about instructional technologies.
    Technological knowledge goes beyond just knowing about the technology tools; you must also know when using those tools are appropriate within instruction.
  • 12. Technological Content Knowledge
    Knowing how technology influences and supplements the course content.
    For example, using an web-based coin toss simulator to demonstrate probability for a large number of trails opposed to manually flipping a coin hundreds of times.
  • 13. Pedagogical Content Knowledge
    Knowing strategies of how to provide instruction and assess students of varying intellectual and ability levels.
    For example, when planning a unit, you may choose to differentiate instruction with regards to the unit’s content because you have an idea of how your students learn and what approaches would be beneficial.
  • 14. Technological Pedagogical Knowledge
    Knowing the impact that technology has on teaching and learning.
    For example, we know that students would easily grasp the concept of the correlation between two variables by illustrating a scatterplot using a graphing calculator.
  • 15. Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
    The intertwining of all three knowledge domains. Using technology as a pedagogical tool as well as content-specific delivery tool.
