TPACK Model

The TPACK Model of lesson planning is a representation of the relationship between types of knowledge. Using this model allows educators to be sure they are balancing all aspects adequately.

Technological Knowledge (TK) is the knowledge the educator possesses of how to use technology tools.

Pedagogical Knowledge (PK) is the knowledge the educator possesses of how to present, manage and assess student performance and learning outcomes.

Content Knowledge (CK) is the knowledge the educator possesses of the content being presented to the learners.

Technological Content Knowledge (TCK) is the knowledge the educator possesses of how to use technology as it relates to the relevant content.

Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) is the knowledge the educator possesses of how to teach and assess the relevant content.

Technology, Pedagogy, and Content Knowledge (TPACK) represents the intersection of TCK and PCK.

One advantage of using this model is that the content expert and the technology expert need not be the same person. With TPACK, a teacher and a technology coach can collaborate easily.
