Developing TPACK: A Study of New Interactive Whiteboard Implementers
Primary Advisor/Dissertation Chair
Secondary Advisor/Reader One
Typical professional development for teachers implementing new technologies has been limited to technology knowledge, largely excluding pedagogical and content knowledge. This capstone investigates the process of developing Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) for new interactive whiteboard implementers. An initial survey was conducted exploring the professional development needs of the participants in the study. Professional learning group sessions were then conducted with the participants, and discourse analysis was used to analyze the transcripts of the sessions. The study found that the participants developed TPACK through participation in the professional learning group sessions. Application of the professional learning group initiative to other technology implementations is also discussed.
