TPACK primer for Teachers

Preparing for our PD session on Dec 9th

In preparation for our PD session on Tuesday, please watch the video below that provides a quick overview of TPACK.

Next, please think of a lesson that you have taught (or seen) recently. Where would you place this lesson within the TPACK framework? Open the google drawing below (click on the link) and please grab a numbered star to place on the TPACK Venn diagram to show where you feel this lesson falls. Note the number of your star for the last step.

Last step!

Please comment below and indicate which star is yours on our diagram. If your lesson was in the "sweet spot,' please comment on how you feel it balanced content, technology, and pedagogy. If your lesson (or the one you saw) wasn't quite there, please comment on a change that could be made to move it into the "sweet spot." (I did an example with the yellow "Ex." star and first comment.)

Looking forward to "class" on Tuesday! :)

#3 is my lesson - it was a lesson I supported (as a school volunteer) in an elementary classroom. 3rd grade students were in the middle of a science lesson in which each student picked from a list of ecosystems to research and then build either a shadow box, or poster that demonstrated what they had learned. At the end of the week, other classrooms were invited to visit their classroom for a classroom science fair where students would talk to other students about their project. The teacher provided students a lot of choice in this lesson and while the classroom as load and a little chaotic - it was organized, engaged chaos where all students were working hard. I think the teacher did a great job blending technology into the lesson, and made critical decisions around the use of technology. For example, she chose not to provide a technology option for the presentations as she could only project one project on her smartboard, and the devices (ipad touches) were too small for presenting at the mini "science fair."

I grabbed #7. I recently used a TACKK to help FLIP my PD to build prior knowledge about SAMR. Folks were supposed to watch video, answer in Padlet and then send any questions using the TACKK form (comes right to your email!). I place my number where I did as my attempt was directly aimed at looking a at variation of pedagogical strategies and technology partners ... I asked folks in F2F to share one of their own content lessons/activity and the whole group brainstormed aligned SAMR ladders

#6 I presented a lesson using Byron's darkness, specifically focused on the TPACK framework. I placed the number where I did because I know all of the components were there, but there could have been a better pedagogical plan.

#9 I am using Google Docs to have students write research papers using the research option.

#1 - I used a lesson that I saw on social networking, particularly on microblogging tools like Twitter. The lesson was strong on content (even getting into new tools like Ello, but the pedagogy was all over the place.

#8 I am thinking of a lesson with principals focused on what culture should and should not be. The lesson opened with some teacher-directed discussion on culture, included some time for collaboration, an opportunity to add their qualities about culture to a Google doc. The teacher then synthesized with the whole group based upon the Google doc. While I think this address all aspects, I think the pedagogy could have been stronger with more scaffolding.

#4 I have been watching endless statistics lessons in high schools. Most of the lessons are stand and deliver and just seeking the correct answer. The teacher quickly moves on. Very little pedagogy and no technology.

I am using a lesson I used yesterday. I taught teachers strategies to support student learning differences. I used hard copies and digital resources. I also provided digital tools and personal teaching strategies.
