Analyzing a Biology lesson plan for TPACK alignment
Abstract: Following the design and implementation of a lesson plan for 4th grade biology using a variety of technologies to stimulate creativity and interest in content, the lesson plan was analyzed for alignment with TPACK to assist researchers with revising the lesson plan and teachers with evaluating the lesson plan for future implementation. Technologies integrated into the lesson include curated digital media presented via Padlet and student use of the 3Doodler pens. From an evaluative standpoint, this biology lesson aligns with TCK, PCK, TPK, and TPACK intersections, demonstrating effective technology integration and sound instructional design. This poster presentation presents components of the lesson plan itself with findings of the content analysis for discussion. The poster will be presented as a 4’x6’ printed poster with highlighted details and supplemented with a mobile device displaying supporting online media and the 3Doodler pens for demonstration.
