A case study of the differences between experienced and in-experienced math teachers' TPACK
Abstract: While using technology in the classroom has been advocated in the field for decades, teachers use technology in the classrooms is not pervasive. Studies found that for in-service teachers, merely provide short-term, one shot technology training workshop may not be sufficient. Teachers need to learn how to use specific content-based technologies in the classroom. Based on Mishra and Koehler’s Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) Framework, the proposed study intents to explore the difference between the experienced teacher and in-experienced middle school math teacher’s TPACK, and factors that influence high school math teacher’s TPACK. Four experienced and in-experienced high school math teachers’ will be interviewed for their knowledge and experiences of using technology teaching geometrics. Qualitative data analysis techniques will be applied to analyze the differences between experienced and in-experienced math teacher’s TPACK.
