  • 1. TPACK Development A Journey Though the Semester
  • 2. My First views of TPACK • When I first learned about TPACK my views were limited. I drew upon my past experiences and tried to related my experiences as a student to the ones that I would probably have as a teacher. • I used my past experiences to fill out my knowledge of TPACK where I could, such as the content and technology sections. • In the following slide are my views from the start of the term.
  • 3. TECHNOLOGY CONTENT Technology: I feel most comfortable with this aspect because I use it in my everyday life all the time. I have experience with various resources and can generally navigate new resources with little difficulty. Pedagogy: I don’t feel like I’ve learned or know much about this aspect. I will have to research more on learning styles and different age groupings. PEDAGOGY Content: I feel fairly comfortable with the content that I would be teaching. I have studied Drama for a long time and I also have a lot of practical knowledge of it. Although, I do still have lots to learn about it. Relationships between each aspect TC: I am fairly comfortable that I have some knowledge on what resources would help enhance the teaching of my major subject. TP: I have not learned enough about pedagogy to feel comfortable knowing what technologies to use. CP: I am a little more comfortable with the interaction between content and pedagogy because I have past experience with teaching this subject to various age groups. I still need more knowledge on learning styles.
  • 4. What I have learned about TPACK • During the semester my knowledge of TPACK grew exponentially. • I learned a lot more about pedagogy and how it is useful for teachers to use this knowledge in their classes. • I learned how to manipulate and use pedagogy to help students and eliminate learning barriers for them. • I also learned how knowledge of pedagogy can manipulate teaching styles when it is combined with Technology and Content.
  • 5. My Current Knowledge of TPACK • My current knowledge of TPACK is much more well rounded than it was at the start to the semester. • I have learned how more about all three aspects and even about how to combine them. • The next slide shows a new chart with my current knowledge.
  • 6. CONTENT TECHNOLOGY Technology: My knowledge of technology has remained relatively constant. I have learned some know tools that would be useful for my major, and this is has been very helpful. I am still comfortable with my knowledge on this aspect. PEDAGOGY Pedagogy: Over the course of the term I have learned a lot more about this aspect. About teaching different types of learners and creating a lesson that is helpful to everyone. I am much more comfortable with this aspect now. Content: I am still very comfortable with know knowledge of the content in my major of studies (Drama). I’ve learned a lot in my other courses to help me expand upon this knowledge this term. Relationships between each aspect TC: After learning about some new technological resources and gaining a broader content knowledge , I am confident that I can apply the appropriate technology for the content of my major. TP: Since learning how flexible technological resources and realizing that is easy to adapt your resource and teaching style to all types of students I have gained more confidence in my TP knowledge. CP: I have gained a lot more knowledge about pedagogy and how to teach all types of learners. This has help me feel confident that I could use appropriate teaching methods for all students in my major of studies.
  • 7. Examples of TPACK in use • TPACK is useful in a number of diverse situations, for example: – Teachers can use TPACK to help them make an effective lesson plan for a class of diverse learners. – Teachers can use the relationship between technology and pedagogy to pick the appropriate tool for their class – The relationship between pedagogy and content helps teachers understand how to best approach the content they are dealing with.
  • 8. What I still need to learn • Though I have gained a lot more knowledge in all aspect of the TPACK module it is important to realized that there is still much more to learn. • Particularly in the section of pedagogy, there seems to be a never ending amount of knowledge to gain. It would be very beneficial to learn even more about how students learn and their different learning styles because it would allow teachers to be even more effective in their lessons.
  • 9. How TPACK Helps Teachers • In the end, TPACK is one of the most useful resources for teachers, and I feel has been one of the most beneficial things I learned in this class. • This model helps teachers not only create effective lesson plans for the content they will be teaching but it also helps them to understand how to effectively use technology in conjunction with their subject matter. It also helps them remain aware of the many types of learners in their classroom and make certain that all students can learn effectively.
  • 10. How TPACK Helps Teachers • In the end, TPACK is one of the most useful resources for teachers, and I feel has been one of the most beneficial things I learned in this class. • This model helps teachers not only create effective lesson plans for the content they will be teaching but it also helps them to understand how to effectively use technology in conjunction with their subject matter. It also helps them remain aware of the many types of learners in their classroom and make certain that all students can learn effectively.
