  3. 3. Agenda:<br />Surfacing Assumptions<br />Did You Know 2.0<br />TPACK Overview and Examples<br />Small Group Discussion: Technology in Our Classrooms<br />
  4. 4. Surfacing Assumptions (Part 1)<br />At your table, you will find a large index card.<br />DO NOT write your name on it. <br />Consider what role you believe technology plays in K-8 classrooms.<br />Write one sentence about how you think technology should be used in K-8 classrooms.<br />When you are finished, give Lara your card.<br />
  5. 5. Surfacing Assumptions (Part 2)<br />Lara will pass back cards randomly.<br />Please let her know if you have your own card.<br />We will verbally share out the sentence written on our card.<br />Please pause after each person reads to consider what was read. <br />
  6. 6. As we watch the following video from*, consider the implications for K-8 classrooms<br />* If there is time and interest at the end of the presentation, I will show you TeacherTube.<br />
  7. 7. Did You Know?<br />On this slide, link either 2.0:<br />Or 3.0 :<br />Based on what you think your audience would connect with.<br />
  8. 8. Revisit the Index Card<br />On the card in front of you, add one sentence on either of the following:<br />What idea, fact or concept struck you the most?<br />What do you think the implications of this video are for K-8 teachers?<br />
  9. 9. Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge: An Overview<br />Theory:<br />Harris, Mishra and Koehler, 2004<br />Reframed, 2009<br />

  12. 12. Technology as a Tool<br />Within the theory, technology is never the centerpiece of the lesson plan.<br />Planning with TPACK:<br />What is your objective?<br />What content considerations do you have?<br />What is a pedagogically appropriate approach?<br />What is the best tool for your lesson?<br />
  13. 13. Student Creation from 103:<br />Students were instructed to create a video about culture in the classroom based on what we learned in class.<br />Students were creating and analyzing key ideas.<br />Example<br />
  14. 14. Revisit the Index Card<br />How might the TPACK theory impact your ideas around what technology should look like in K-8 classrooms?<br />Or… <br />What are your reactions or ideas about the theory? <br />
  15. 15. Group Examination of TPACK<br />Select 2 or 3 colleagues with whom you share topics or content. (i.e. teaching assignment or content area)<br />Review the Activity Type charts in the packet.<br />Which would be appropriate for your content?<br />Which might you like to try?<br />
