Abstract

From re-examining the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge framework in light of the recent evolution of the PCK model to learning with MOOCs or using Twitter for professional development, this symposium will focus on various aspects of information and communication technology and education. In a few short years, technology has made unprecedented inroads into schools. This extensive technology presence in education is due as much to its appeal as to its oft-claimed potential for education: that it motivates students to learn. Topics will include MOOCs, the use of Twitter for professional development, implementing videoconferencing to support First Nations teacher education in Canada, information literacy, re-examining the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge framework in light of the recent evolution of the PCK model, how students learn to write with technologies, and the educational impacts of coding.
