TPACK Tuesday Update

Issue #1 - 9.28.2015: Welcome Back!

Why TPACK Tuesday?

What is TPACK?

TPACK = Technology+Pedagogy+Content Knowledge. When combined, these three knowledge bases provide a framework for technology integration in the classroom.

What is TPACK Tuesday?

It's a day to think and reflect about how technology can help elevate best practice instruction.

How can you do this?

  • Start by reading the weekly TPACK Tuesday Update email for tips on integrating technological knowledge into a lesson or unit.
  • Attend a TPACK Tuesday training session. Dates and times TBA soon!
  • Try something new. It doesn't have to be earth shattering - a little bit of tech integration can be transformational in redefining lessons and engaging students.
  • Share! If you tried something and it's awesome, share it with others. Tell your colleagues, tweet about it, take a picture and send it to me so it can be included in the newsletter. Share if something isn't awesome too - that's how we learn!
