Effect of Technology : Brief description of constructs in the
'TPACK framework from Mishra and Koehler (2006) in Graham,
2011.
Technological
knowledge
knowledge of operating systems and computer hardware, and
the ability to use standard sets of software tools such as word
processors, spreadsheets, browsers,...etc.)
Technological
pedagogical
knowledge
knowledge of how teaching might change as the result of using
particular technologies
Technological
Content Knowledge
knowledge about how technology and content are related.
Technological
pedagogical
content knowledge
the basis of good teaching with technology
• teach content
• how technology can help readress some of the problems that
students face
• knowledge of students’ prior knowledge
• and knowledge of how technologies can be used to build on
existing knowledge and to develop new methods or
strengthen old ones.” (p. 1029)

The purpose of this section is to gather information
about combining technology, pedagogy and content
knowledge in the teaching and learning process. For
each item choose only one option that best describes
you.
1
I can use technology to develop activities based on
students needs to enrich the teaching and learning
process.
2
I can implement effective classroom management in
the teaching and learning process in which
technology is used.
3
I can use technology for implementing educational
activities such as homework, projects, etc.
4
I can use technology based communication tools (
blog, froum, chat, e-mail, etc. ) in the teaching
process.
5
I can use innovative technologies ( facebook, blogs,
twitter, podcastingi etc.) to support the teaching and
learning process.
6
I can use technology to update my knowledge and
skilss in the area that I will teach.
7
I can troubleshoot problems that could be
encountered with online educational environments
( Moodle, Web CT, etc)
8
I can use technology in every phase of the teaching
and learning process by considering the copyright
issues(e.g. licence) Ican become a leader in spreading
the use of technological innovations in my future
teaching community.
Strongly
disagree
A technological pedagogical content knowledge scale
(Yurdakul et.al. 2012)
TPACK is:
Knowing how to present the subject matter with technology in
pedagocially sound ways
So & Kim, 2009
A teacher’s knowledge of how to coordinate and combine the use
of subject-specific activities and topic-specific activities using
emerging technologies to facilitate student learning
Cox&Graham ,2009
TPACK is not simply:
....adding technology to existing teaching and content...
Yurdakul et al,2011

In conclusion, considering the examples,
How can digital technologies support;
1)
the development of teachers’ vision for education?
2)
teachers’ motivation to learn and develop their
practice?
3)
teachers’ professional knowledge, understanding
and practice?
4)
teachers' reflection?
5)
teachers’ learning in the community?
