2014-03-19 SITE TPACK Symposium

"TPACK is recognized by many as a useful conceptual framework to help define the knowledge base teachers’ need to know to effectively integrate technology in their educational practice. However, determining whether teachers indeed have developed the knowledge and skills required for effective technology integration – or in short whether they have developed TPACK – is a much more complicated issue. This symposium discusses how artifacts are being used in assessing pre-service and practicing teachers technology integration competencies. TPACK calls for coherence between content, pedagogy and technology. The assumption is that having TPACK also implies teachers’ being able to demonstrate technology integration competencies. This assumption implies a fit between (pre-service) teachers’ TPACK (often measured through self-report instruments) and the artifacts they produce. 

In this symposium we discuss how different kinds of artifacts, e.g. lesson plans and lesson practice as demonstrated in video clips can be used as an indicator of a teacher’s technology integration competencies. In this symposium we discuss different artifacts (pre-service) teachers produce in order to demonstrate that they have TPACK. In the symposium different artifacts will be discussed, such as lesson plans and video clips that show technology use in classroom practice. The symposium deals with the potential and restrictions of artifacts as indicator for technology integration, the assessment of artifacts and the relation with other TPACK measures, such as the TPACK survey from Schmidt et al. (2010). Examples from different educational contexts will be presented and discussed."

Joni Galbreath's curator insight, April 12, 12:52 AM

I really like this list, especially #9 & #20.

 

Many times teachers will make your work bleed (red pen marks) because they are trying to correct EVERY error. #9 suggests that teachers should focus on one skill at a time. I think that for most students this is a great idea!

 

#20 suggests that students should be allowed to provide feedback too! It suggests using some kind of anonymous grading system (like our end of course evaluations) for the students to say what they like/dislike about a particular lesson. I would like to hear about a class that has used this technique because I think it can either be a really good thing OR a really bad thing.

Why good hackers make good citizens

Hacking is about more than mischief-making or political subversion. As Catherine Bracy describes in this spirited talk, it can be just as much a force for good as it is for evil. She spins through some inspiring civically-minded projects in Honolulu, Oakland and Mexico City — and makes a compelling case that we all have what it takes to get involved.

Joni Galbreath's curator insight, April 12, 1:16 AM

I remember many of us had questions or concerns about HOW to ask questions. Questions are a HUGE part of ASSESSMENT! This article provided some good insight on questioning as well as a list of references that can help with this topic.


*Sidenote- one good thing about using the internet for research is that it is usually up-to-date. The list of books/articles mentioned here are relatively new, most recent from 2014 and the oldest from 2008.

Christina Gasaway's curator insight, April 13, 11:05 PM

This too. Is great for providing what questions to ask and how to encourage the student interaction through questions. As a teacher we have to encourage students to dig deeper than just the who, what, where, when, why, and how questions. students need to think on a higher level, which this website helps with creating questions along those lines.

Mindset Works®: Student Motivation through a Growth Mindset, by Carol Dweck, Ph.D.

Brainology is an online interactive program in which middle school students learn about how the brain works, how to strengthen their own brains, and how to better approach their own learning. In the process they develop a growth mindset whereby they think of their intelligence as something they can develop through study and learning rather than as something fixed, as explained by our co-founder Dr. Carol Dweck.
