What is TPACK?
TPACK is a framework that merges T-technology, P- pedagogy, and C- content.
Amazing teachers around the world are using TPACK without even knowing it. When teachers plan units they often ask themselves, What content am I teaching? Should I do this in small groups or partners? Will they need a video or should I show them a website? Masterful teachers plan units with a deep level of content standards in mind. They think about the pedagogical needs of their students, planning instructional strategies that provide inquiry and differentiation for all students. They also think about the technological tools that will enhance learning. Will the students benefit from blogging, do they need to provide editing feedback to each other through a google doc? This sweet spot where pedagogy, content & technology intersect, this is TPACK. Here is a short video from Common Sense Media that explains the TPACK model in depth.
