Abstract

The TPACK-in-Practice Workshop is derived from the Framework of TPACK-in-Practice, a framework of teacher characteristics and actions that demonstrate TPACK used by teachers when they teach with technology. The workshop model uses four specific types of professional development experiences to promote teaching with technology, rather than teaching the technology, with the goal that teachers leave the workshop being able to understand how to integrate one tech-enhanced activity into their own daily instructional practices. Significance of the study is that teacher candidates who use the TPACK-in-Practice Workshop Model to design and deliver technology workshops in their practice teaching placement schools, develop a richer understanding of individual tech-enhanced teaching practice, which promotes a paradigm shift from teaching the tool to tech-enhanced teaching. Preliminary findings indicate that the workshop model may be a practical and efficient method for engaging teachers and teacher candidates in the development of tech-enhanced teaching practice.
