TPACK in the Technology Classroom
The technology classroom demands that teachers not only have pedagogical and content knowledge but must also possess technological skills as well. The highest aim of the Technology Design Lab is to empower students to be proficient in technology to be able to free design, create and build. Aligning TPACK strengthens my instruction so that students can freely demonstrate their understanding in any subject in a multitude of ways - their technology skills enhance their learning.
Technology is in a constant state of growth, and therefore, the technology teacher must also be in a state of constant growth. Providing students with the skills necessary to be successful in the digital world requires constant learning in the content and technology areas.
