Session Purpose/Overview

In today’s classroom, educators must make pedagogical shifts to promote student learning that is dynamic, collaborative, and meets the demands of the 21st century learner. Innovative professional development can be momentous by positively impacting and building educator capacity. North Carolina K-12 educators deserve learning opportunities that support them in their current role and support them in their efforts to use digital resources and Web 2.0 tools.

Session Description

Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) is a framework that identifies the knowledge teachers need to teach effectively with technology. At the heart of the TPACK framework is the complex interplay of three primary forms of knowledge: Content (CK), Pedagogy (PK), and Technology (TK). In this session participants will apply this framework to K-12 education, identify appropriately aligned resources, develop strategies for evaluating technology integration and explore unique professional learning opportunities.

Session Objectives
  1. Understand the importance of the TPACK lens as a guide to finding the best intersection of curricular standards, pedagogy choices, and technology selections.
  2. Understand and apply basic concepts associated with technological, pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK).
  3. Explore the relationship that connects the North Carolina Standard Course of Study, NCEES and TPACK.

Learning Outcomes
After this session participants will be able to apply concepts, activities, and digital tools aligned to the TPACK framework when conducting PD/capacity building within their districts and schools.
