Libraries, Educational Technology, and the TPCK Framework
How can we use technology to increase the impact of our information literacy (IL) instruction? How can we empower librarians to use technology as an integral part of their teaching, and not just an add-on? In an IL classroom, technology is often used to spice up our teaching repertoire. This presentation provides librarians with a theoretical construct as a basis for effectively incorporating educational technology into IL instruction. The TPCK framework – technological pedagogical content knowledge – defines knowledge domains that are necessary to construct a coherent, technology enhanced classroom experience.
