Abstract In this paper we critically analyze extant approaches to technology integration in teaching, arguing that many current methods are technocentric, often omitting sufficient consideration of the dynamic and complex relationships among content, technology, pedagogy, and context. We recommend using the technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge (TPACK) framework as a way to think about effective technology integration, recognizing technology, pedagogy, content and context as… Expand
TPACK Development in Teacher Education
Abstract How does preservice teachers’ knowledge for technology integration develop during their teacher preparation program? Which areas of their knowledge develop most naturally, and which areasExpand
Elementary Education Candidates’ Integration of Technology in Science Units
This study used the framework of technological pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK) to examine how elementary education preservice teachers integrated technology in science units that theyExpand
Pedagogy and Content Knowledge Based Podcasting Project for Preservice Teachers
This study examines the impact of an instruction based on the technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) framework on podcasting and vodcasting for preservice teachers in the United States.Expand
In recent decades, there has been increasing research interest in teachers’ competences regarding the growing role of technologies in educational practices. These competences are grounded on a clearExpand
TPACK: exploring a secondary pre-service teachers' context
Twenty-first century teacher educators need to design learning experiences integrating technology for transformative learning. Bringing together the power of deep content knowledge, pedagogicalExpand
Constructing embodied understanding of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge: preservice teachers' learning to teach with information technology
This study suggests that learning to teach with IT is an idiosyncratic, multi-dimensional, and developmental process that involves confirmation and adjustments to many aspects of change simultaneously. Expand
Using technology pedagogical content knowledge development to enhance learning outcomes
Teachers’ self-reports of their TPACK knowledge were triangulated with performance-based assessment of their instructional practices and artifacts to give a better understanding and nature of pre-service teachers’ TPACK development. Expand
Educating engineer educators on technology enhnaced learning based on TPACK
An approach for educating engineer educators on TEL that uses WebQuests as the main methodological tool for cultivating technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) and aims at stimulating them to reflect and elaborate on their subject matter and on how to design learning in an authentic context.

This paper will discuss an international online collaborative learning experience through the lens of the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework. The teacher knowledge requiredExpand


Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge: A Framework for Teacher Knowledge
Research in the area of educational technology has often been critiqued for a lack of theoretical grounding. In this article we propose a conceptual framework for educational technology by buildingExpand
Instructional Planning Activity Types as Vehicles for Curriculum-Based TPACK Development
This chapter describes a approach to curriculum-based technology integration that is predicated upon the combining of technologically supported learning activity types within and across content-keyed activity type taxonomies and describes such a TPACK development method. Expand
What Happens When Teachers Design Educational Technology? The Development of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
We introduce Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) as a way of representing what teachers need to know about technology, and argue for the role of authentic design-based activities inExpand
A Framework for Addressing Challenges to Classroom Technology Use
A framework is developed, the Individualized Inventory for Integrating Instructional Innovations (i5), to help teachers predict the likelihood of success of technology-based projects in the classroom and identify potential barriers that can hinder their technology integration efforts. Expand
Reflecting on the Affordances and Constraints of Technologies and Their Impact on Pedagogical Goals
A process for selecting and evaluating technologies that meet the important principles of each learning task and how this process was used to evaluate two technologies—discussion boards and blogs—as potential technologies for teacher reflection is introduced. Expand
Conditions for Classroom Technology Innovations
This article reports on a study of the complex and messy process of classroom technology integration. The main purpose of the study was to empirically address the large question of “why don’tExpand
The Subject Matters: Classroom Activity in Math and Social Studies
To achieve quality education in American schools, we need a better understanding of the way classroom instruction works. Susan S. Stodolsky addresses this need with her pioneering analysis of theExpand
