  8. 8. What’s TPACK?
  9. 9. T = Technological P = Pedagogical A = Nothing--Tricky place holder C = Content K = Knowledge
  10. 10. Knowing how to teach with instructional technologies in ways that students will learn is considered a special kind of knowledge
  11. 11. Reporting Out Let me have a group volunteer: - Which Objective? - What did the teacher do? (What kind of knowledge does the teacher need to have?) - What did the students do? - How do you know if students have learned?
  12. 12. Got TPACK?
  13. 13. Reporting Out Let me have a group volunteer: - Which Objective? - What did the students do? (What kind of knowledge do they need to have? What kind of knowledge does the teacher need to have?)
  14. 14. High TPACK? What Kind of Knowledge?
  15. 15. Reporting Out Let me have a group volunteer: - Which Objective? -How do you know that students learned? (What kind of knowledge did the teacher need to have? The students?)
  16. 16. What Kind of Knowledge?
  17. 17. Avoiding “Technocentrism” • Seymour Papert (1987) calls it “technocentric” when instruction is planned starting with the digital tools and resources that will be used. • If you do this, the lesson is focused upon the technologies being used, more than the students who are trying to use them to learn.
  18. 18. Activity Types to help with planning • Ways to help teachers add instructional technologies to their teaching that corresponds with how most teachers plan • Start with the Goals, end with the Instructional technologies • http://activitytypes.wmwikis.net/
  19. 19. Using Activity Types to Plan • Choosing learning goals • Making practical pedagogical decisions about the nature of the learning experience • Selecting and sequencing appropriate activity types to combine to form the learning experience • Selecting formative and summative assessment strategies that will reveal what and how well students are learning • Selecting tools and resources that will best help students to benefit from the learning experience being planned
  20. 20. “Affordances” of Technology Pros & Cons -- Why use it? OVERHEAD DOCUMENT CAMERA • • Display written work on regular paper • Show demonstrations without blocking view • Show calculator • Students can show work from regular paper • Sometimes hard to see if writing is too light” • Display written work on clear overhead sheet Easy to “muss up” from erasable marker
  21. 21. Can you think of other Instructional technology examples to compare?

  23. 23. Howard University Your Task… 1. Access your Diigo file and examine the fourth grade common core standard 2. In pairs or group of three’s, select an objective to teach. 3. Write out a step by step plan for a one hour class showing how you would introduce the lesson and teach the content. 4. Use Pinterest, Livebinders, or the internet to find an activity that could be used to help you teach the objective 5. Use your activity type resources to identify technology that would assist you in teaching the lesson.
