Pre-Service Teachers' Maturing Perceptions of a TPACK-Framed Signature Pedagogy in Science Education
Hechter, Richard P.
Computers in the Schools, v29 n1-2 p53-69 2012
Teacher education programs across North America are transforming. What were once piecemeal programs consisting of often unrelated courses are now becoming coherent and intertwined trajectories toward teacher certification. Part of this transformation can be attributed to the weaving of "signature pedagogies" throughout overarching program frameworks. A modern signature pedagogy within science teacher education is the integration of technology with science area content and effective pedagogy. In this article the author reports an action research study aimed toward promoting the "scholarship of teaching" of pre-service teachers through articulating changes in their maturing perceptions of the integrated relationship between technological, pedagogical, and science content knowledge.
