TPACK as workplace learning

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearchpeer-review


    Technological, pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK) has been used as a
    theoretical lens which identifies the nature of knowledge required by teachers for
    technology integration in their teaching. While there have been hundreds of studies that have used TPACK to examine what teachers need to know about technology as part of their classroom practice, there has been little research specifically investigating how in-service teachers acquire this knowledge. This paper builds on earlier reviews of workplace learning literature and suggests that Communities of Practice (CoP), in particular notions of a socially formed identity, may provide an alternate lens through which teachers’ TPACK development can be understood.
