  • Technological PedagogicalContent Knowledge in history education Philip Roberts Assistant Professor, Teacher Education CRICOS #00212K
  • PCK•  Lee Shulman (1986) argued that teachers subject knowledge and pedagogy knowledge were often treated as mutually exclusive domains.•  He proposed PCK (Pedagogical Content Knowledge)•  ‘The most regularly taught topics in one’s subject area, the most useful forms of representation of those ideas, the most powerful analogies, illustrations, examples, explanations, and demonstrations – in a word, the ways of representing and formulating the subject that make it comprehensible to others’ (Shulman, 1986 p.9) CRICOS #00212K
  • Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge •  TPACK: Three primary forms of knowledge: Content (CK), Pedagogy (PK), and Technology (TK). •  Effective ICT Integration requires all three areas • •  ishra, P., & Koehler, M.

This is because the amount of time spent on transferring information to students is reduced.•  Digital technology need only be a minor tweak on traditional teaching. CRICOS #00212K
