Recently, we were notified that our paper has just been published at the Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology (TOJET)’s October issue. The paper is an expanded version of the keynote we delivered at the International Computer and Instructional Technologies Conference that was held in Konya-Turkey last year. Our collaborative work which produced this paper started during my time at Iowa State University with the visit of Dr. Hsueh-Hua Chuang, professor from the National Sun Yat-sen University, Taiwan. She is also my major professor-Dr. Ann Thompson’s one of former doctoral students. In the paper, we presented some of the current research and development efforts that used TPACK framework in different teacher education settings. The paper is currently have an open access at TOJET‘s website.
Here is more information on the paper:
Abstract: TPACK (technological pedagogical content knowledge) has emerged as a clear and useful construct for researchers working to understand technology integration in learning and teaching. Whereas first generation TPACK work focused upon explaining and interpreting the construct, TPACK has now entered a second generation where the focus is upon using the construct in both research and development projects. In this paper, the TPACK construct is defined and several current research and development projects that use the TPACK framework are described. The strength of the TPACK framework in research and evaluation work in technology integration is discussed, along with future directions for this work.
