Book Description

28 Mar 2008 0805863567 978-0805863567 1

Published by Taylor & Francis Group for the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education

This Handbook addresses the concept and implementation of technological pedagogical content knowledge -- the knowledge and skills that teachers need in order to integrate technology meaningfully into instruction in specific content areas. Recognizing, for example, that effective uses of technology in mathematics are quite different from effective uses of technology in social studies, teachers need specific preparation in using technology in each content area they will be teaching. Offering a series of chapters by scholars in different content areas who apply the technological pedagogical content knowledge framework to their individual content areas, the volume is structured around three themes:

  • What is Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge?
  • Integrating Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge into Specific Subject Areas
  • Integrating Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge into Teacher Education and Professional Development

The Handbook of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge for Educators is simultaneously a mandate and a manifesto on the engagement of technology in classrooms based on consensus standards and rubrics for effectiveness. As the title of the concluding chapter declares, "It’s about time!"

The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) is a national, voluntary association of higher education institutions and related organizations. Our mission is to promote the learning of all PK-12 students through high-quality, evidence-based preparation and continuing education for all school personnel.

Product Description


"Academics and educators who are interested in the thorny problem of technology infusion will find the handbook to be a useful resource…Instead of advocating the use of technology for its own sake, the handbook proposes a more nuanced and thoughtful approach that maintains a focus on effective learning. Taken together, the chapters of the book suggest valuable new approaches for schools of education. The book is highly recommended for both teacher educators and researchers in the field of educational technology."--Jim Hewitt, Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education (2008), 8 (4): 355-360

5.0 out of 5 stars Practical yet heavy on examples and evidence 18 Dec 2009

The separate content-specific areas aides the busy professional to quickly reference this book. The TPACK concept is transformative if understood, properly planned, implemented, and refined after evaluation. This is a must have resource for K-12 Instructional Technology folks and the tech-savvy teacher eager to go beyond using technology when available. TPACK helps to justify the need for increased technology resources in public education. I truly hope some Obama money helps make TPACK a reality in our schools. This book is your justification.

Teachers and Techs- get this book. Koeler and Mishra's seminal work on Technology in education is a foundational reading that every educational leader or change agent should have.
Excellent for Grad school as well!
