At a conference in 2010, I was first introduced to the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) model. What this framework did for me was graphically demonstrate that technology knowledge alone could not support the learning needs of my students. Rather, content knowledge and pedagogical knowledge had to be enhanced alongside technology knowledge. At the intersection of all three is found TPCK.
The TPCK framework promotes the emphasis of teaching and learning experiences with technology and not simply the use of technology. Many times, in my excitement to try new technology with students, I have forgotten the importance of sound pedagogy and content. When all three are given proper support student learning is most supported.
