Giving, Prompting, Making: Aligning Technology and Pedagogy within TPACK for Social Studies Instruction
Hammond, Thomas C.; Manfra, Meghan McGlinn
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v9 n2 p160-185 2009
Technological pedagogical content knowledge (now known as technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge, or TPACK) has become a widely referenced conceptual framework within teacher education. It provides a common language to discuss the integration of technology into instruction (Koehler & Mishra, 2008) and builds upon the concepts of pedagogical content knowledge (Shulman, 1987) and teacher as curricular "gatekeeper" (Thornton, 2001a, 2001b). This paper describes a three-part pedagogical model--giving-prompting-making--to explicate the relationship between pedagogy and technology within the social studies classroom. This model is intended to enhance the TPACK framework by providing a clear and intuitive comparison between social studies teachers' pedagogical aims and their choices with technology. The giving-prompting-making model can be used to guide social studies teacher education students to make the most appropriate use of technology. (Contains 3 tables and 4 figures.)
