"TPACK Stories": Schools and School Districts Repurposing a Theoretical Construct for Technology-Related Professional Development
Harris, Judith B.; Hofer, Mark J.
Journal of Research on Technology in Education, v49 n1-2 p1-15 2017
TPACK (Koehler & Mishra, 2008), a theoretical construct that describes the knowledge that teachers use to teach with digital tools and resources, has flourished in university-based teacher education and research. Increasingly, K-12 schools and districts have also appropriated TPACK in their professional development efforts. This study of seven schools and districts explored how the TPACK construct was understood and used in these K-12 organizations. Study results revealed the importance of context and professional culture in appropriating the construct; the use of TPACK as a way to connect disparate professional development initiatives; TPACK conceptualized as applied knowledge; and how educational leaders' beliefs about professional development shape how TPACK is understood and enacted.
