What is TPACK? It is a technology-integration framework that identifies three types of knowledge teachers must combine to successfully incorporate edtech into their teaching. Technological, pedagogical, and content knowledge are the three types of knowledge teachers must take into account. Integrating technology does not come easy to most educators because we have the false idea that technology should be the central focus when planning lessons with technology. Yet, technology should be seamlessly integrated into lessons alongside pedagogical knowledge and content knowledge.
Throughout the program, I have been introduced to a variety of technological tools and with the focus of TPACK, I have been able to utilize this technology to address each of my students’ unique academic needs. I have been more vigilant of actively incorporating pedagogy with content knowledge and pairing it with the appropriate technology, in order to set up my students for success when it comes to academic excellence.
