For years many policymakers in education have been making decisions about how to “fix” public schools and assess the “value” a teacher brings to student achievement that don’t really do either. The idea has been to apply principles from the business world — where competition is the key — to a civic institution, the public education system. It hasn’t worked in the way supporters had hoped. There have been serious consequences for students, schools and teachers, and in this post, one educator talks about the real effects on real teachers as a result of some of these policies.

In this self-access and open course, you will learn how to use the TPACK (Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge) Framework to effectively integrate educational technology in your teaching. It assists you to develop competencies that will enable you to plan systemically for the selection, utilization and evaluation of technology tools and resources in a pedagogically appropriate manner. This course is designed to be different from most other faculty professional development courses on technology. While others tend to focus on simply learning the technology tools, leaving it up to the participants to make the connection to pedagogy and content knowledge, this workshop is based on TPACK which provides for an integrated approach to combining technology, pedagogy and content knowledge.

The TPACK framework has been described as being “the most significant advancement in the area of technology integration in the past 25 years”.
