Centered around the theme “Enhancing Teaching with Technology,” this seminar is strategically designed to demystify the underlying concepts of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK). The goal is to endow participants with practical strategies that seamlessly infuse technology into their teaching and learning (T&L) practice while bolstering their focus on pedagogical and content expertise. It primarily targets educators and educationists on the quest for a more nuanced understanding of TPACK and pragmatic ideas to integrate technology within the K–12 context and beyond.
During the session, participants will embark on an enlightening journey entailing the elucidation of TPACK principles, their application across various contexts, and an exploration of a vast array of digital tools. Designed to be highly interactive, it will involve hands-on activities requiring computer access. To amplify the learning experience, many relevant resources and templates will also be provided, facilitating immediate application.
Upon completion, participants are expected to walk away with a “relational understanding of TPACK,” coupled with a plethora of design ideas poised to aid them in weaving technology into their T&L practice, all the while considering pedagogical and content expertise. Although the session may not cover the entire expanse of TPACK due to time constraints, it envisions inspiring participants to explore the topic further, ultimately fostering a more nuanced understanding of its transformative potential in various educational contexts—writ large.
