Meaningful use of ICT in education requires teachers to develop knowledge and skills that enables them to integrate ICT with a suitable pedagogical approach for teaching specific subject matter in a certain context. Koehler & Mishra (2008) introduced Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge as a conceptual framework to describe the knowledge base teachers need for effective teaching with technology. This symposium aims to present successful strategies to develop Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) as emerged from several studies in different countries around the world. Based on the studies, and a further in-depth analysis of the data we tried to further uncover the conceptual understanding and the empirical validation of the TPACK framework. Active collaboration of teachers seems to be an effective way to develop TPACK, but the question remains how TPACK as a conceptual framework can be understood.
