TPACK: Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
TPACK represents the integration of three major components of successful teaching:
Simply making sure computers are present in every classroom and that students are logging on daily doesn't mean that technology is being effectively used to enhance instruction. Likewise, a teacher may have a multitude of fun, engaging games but if lacking the actual content knowledge that is to be learned during those engaging moments, learning is lost. While the interplay of these three components looks different at each grade level, keeping their balanced integration at the forefront of the teaching practice is what leads to success in learning for students of all ages.
