Artifacts demonstrating teachers’ technology integration competencies
Abstract: This symposium discusses how artifacts are being used in assessing pre-service and practicing teachers technology integration competencies. TPACK calls for coherence between content, pedagogy and technology. The assumption is that having TPACK also implies teachers’ being able to demonstrate technology integration competencies. This assumption implies a fit between (pre-service) teachers’ TPACK (often measured through self-report) and the artifacts they produce. In this symposium we discuss how different kinds of artifacts, e.g. lesson plans and lesson practice as demonstrated in video clips can be used as an indicator of a teacher’s technology integration competencies. Examples from different educational contexts will be presented and discussed.
