Handbook of technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPCK) for educators.

Ed. by AACTE Committee on Innovation and Technology.



320 pages




Twenty-five American academics, researchers, and educational consultants contribute 13 chapters describing a broad array of technology-infused learning strategies and explaining how teachers can use them as a part of curriculum-based instruction. Coverage includes a general overview of what TPCK is; the integration of TPCK into specific subject areas such as K-6 literacy education, world languages, social studies, mathematics, visual and performing arts, science and technology, and physical education; and integrating TPCK into teacher education and professional development. An afterword by the seven-member editorial team draws on material from each of the chapters to formulate a call to action for significant change in teacher education programs, to assist both preservice and in-service teachers in building their TPCK skills.
