About TPACK Fridays
TPACK is “a way of thinking about the knowledge teachers need to understand to integrate technology effectively into their classrooms (Mishra & Koehler, 2008).” Teachers who exhibit best practices with technology are “creative, flexible, and adapt ways in which they navigate the constraints, affordances, and interactions within TPACK framework. (Mishra & Koehler, 2008).”
True technology integration is a thoughtful approach in which teachers understand how to relate concepts with technologies, demonstrate creative pedagogical practice, and facilitate technology use in ways to teach content and skills with a student centered approach.
