Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) - www.tpck.org

Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) - www.tpck.org | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) attempts to identify the nature of knowledge required by teachers for technology integration in their teaching, while addressing the complex, multifaceted and situated nature of teacher knowledge. At the heart of the TPACK framework, is the complex interplay of three primary forms of knowledge: Content (CK), Pedagogy (PK), and Technology (TK). See Figure above.

How To Design Your Own Infographics

How To Design Your Own Infographics | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

From mortgages to ice cream, estimating software to infographics about infographics, there is very little now that hasn't been 'visualised' in some form. Many people don't realise that the term information graphic, or 'infographic' was first coined over 100 years ago, with the Coxcomb chart by Florence Nightingale in 1857 being one of earliest recognised examples. They have existed in many forms since then, but only in the past few years have infographics developed into the art form we know today.
