More about TPACK at http://punya.educ.msu.edu/research/tpck/ *Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) is a concept which attempts to capture some of the essential qualities of knowledge required by teachers in integrating technology into their teaching. The TPACK framework is created by combining three primary forms of knowledge: Content (CK), Pedagogy (PK), and Technology (TK). The checklist above may be useful when thinking about how you might use the TPACK concept to include a Pedagogy of Technology into your units.
