Abstract

This paper discusses teacher educators’ experiences in developing technological, pedagogical and content knowledge through redesigning course content to integrate web 2.0 technologies. Findings suggest that the instructors gained technological knowledge and modified pedagogical practices in order to incorporate the new technologies. The characteristics of participants as adopters of innovations and their developments in TPACK are discussed, which are important considerations for teacher education programs of the 21st Century.
