We are thrilled that our first webinar hosted by the Digital Classroom: Teaching with Tech community on edWeb was the top-attended webinar of the week with 290 attendees!

Presenters Dr. Punya Mishra and Dr. Matthew Koehler, both professors in the Department of Education at Michigan State University, presented on the TPACK model (Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge). As developers of this model, they walked participants through the framework, the theory behind it, and how teachers can apply it to design innovative learning experiences for students.

Webinar Highlights

12:05 -- “Technology, whether you like it or not, will change how we teach.” –- Punya Mishra

21:09 -- “It’s at that intersection of technology, pedagogy, and content in specific contexts that we argue good teaching happens. That good teaching would require you to look at how your content, technology, and pedagogy interact with each other.” -- Punya Mishra

55:49 -- “When you design a solution for your practice, you have to confront all of these at once. So we’re not prioritizing; we’re saying, figure out the pedagogy, the content, and the technology all at once that are going to come together as a solution for you, your lesson, or your class.” -- Matthew Koehler
