Evidence of learning - TPACK

TPACK, Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge, is the heart of innovative teaching (common sense education, 2014) and refers to educators combining their knowledge of pedagogy, subject content and 21st century technology to create activities and lessons that will thoroughly enhance student learning and engagement. Understanding how technology tools can improve and support student learning is the essential component of TPACK. Using the TPACK method can ensure varied and rich learning experiences for all students, especially for diverse learners.

Students develop and progressively improve their ICT ability throughout their schooling lives. As stated by the Australian curriculum students must “learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively in all learning areas at school, and in their lives beyond school” (Australian curriculum, 2015). From foundation to grade ten students will be “learning to make the most of the digital technologies available to them, adapting to new ways of doing things as technologies evolve and limiting the risks to themselves and others in a digital environment” (Australian curriculum, 2015). By incorporating the TPACK method, and by being passionate about using technology within teaching, educators will cover the student outcomes outlined in the Australian curriculum.
