Koehler, Mishra & Yahya 2007

by | Thursday, April 10, 2008

Koehler, Mishra & Yahya (2007) is an important paper in the TPACK related work for a range of reasons. The research captured in this paper actually predates the TCRecord (Mishra & Koehler, 2006) article, but the vagaries of publishing and journal waiting-lists led to this reversal of time-lines. This paper contains an extended analysis of design talk and presents an innovative representational scheme to capture the evolution of TPACK. An abstract and link to a pdf version of the paper is given below.

Koehler, M.J., Mishra, P., & Yahya, K. (2007). Tracing the development of teacher knowledge in a design seminar: Integrating content, pedagogy, & technology. Computers and Education, 49(3), 740-762.

Abstract: Effective technology integration for teaching subject matter requires knowledge not just of content, technology and pedagogy, but also of their relationship to each other. Building on Shulman’s (1987) concept of pedagogical content knowledge, we introduce a framework for conceptualizing Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge—TPCK (Mishra, & Koehler (2006). We report the results of a semester-long investigation of the development of TPCK during a faculty development design seminar, whereby faculty members worked together with masters students to develop online courses. Quantitative discourse analysis of 15 weeks of field notes for two of the design teams show participants moved from considering technology, pedagogy and content as being independent constructs towards a richer conception that emphasized connections among the three knowledge bases. Our analyses suggests that developing TPCK is a multigenerational process, involving the development of deeper understandings of the complex web of relationships between content, pedagogy and technology and the contexts in which they function. Pedagogic, pragmatic, theoretical, and methodological contributions are discussed.

Three important questions that we often seek answers for are: WHAT is it?WHEN should we do it?WHERE should it happen? Turns out these questions can be answered just by replacing just one letter—namely replace "W" with "T." Here they are: ThatThenThere Simple. Here is...

Is your head in the McClouds!

Scott McCloud is a pioneer in his field - the field of comics. (I had previously posted about him here). I just discovered (via Presentation Zen & Matt Koehler) a TED talk he had given back in 2005. It is a wonderful introduction to McCloud the man and his ideas....

Rethinking Google Ranking

Matt Koehler suggested that my reasoning in a previous post (Google ranking, a self-defeating approach) criticizing his attempt at raising his Google ranking was mistaken. According to him, providing links to other Koehlers in the world actually helps raise his...
