Processes of Practice and Identity Shaping Teachers' TPACK Enactment in a Community of Practice
Phillips, Michael
Education and Information Technologies, v22 n4 p1771-1796 Jul 2017
Technological, pedagogical and content knowledge (TPACK) has been used by hundreds of studies as a theoretical framework to explore teachers' technology use in classroom settings. While these studies have contributed to understandings of the interplay between these different knowledge domains and the differences between pre- and in-service teachers' knowledge, little work has been done to examine the influence of teachers' socially mediated workplace settings on TPACK enactment. This paper examines the impact of situated, social contextual factors on teachers' knowledge development and enactment by reporting findings from an eight month case study involving ten teachers in an Australian secondary school. Results reported in this paper indicate that TPACK enactment is influenced by processes of identity development and practice. These findings challenge the established position of knowledge as an epistemological possession inherent in the TPACK framework rather than also considering knowing as an epistemology of practice. Implications for in-service teachers and school authorities are discussed and three conclusions are presented.
