I’ve been hearing a lot of discussion about TPACK lately and finally decided I needed to find out more about it. I spent a couple of hours searching and reading. You can find my conclusions below. Little did I know, John Pearce, had already published a link to an absolutely awesome – and far more entertaining and informative video.

TPCK – Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge
“Teaching is a highly complex activity that draws on many kinds of knowledge.”
The TPACK framework illustrates the interaction between three knowledge bases;
- Content Knowledge (CK)
- Pedagogical Knowledge (PK)
- Technological Knowledge (TK)
New types of interrelated knowledge lie at the intersections between the three knowledge bases.
“Developing good content involves a thoughtful interweaving of all three key sources of knowledge: technology, pedagogy and content.”
