I am sure that all of us are familiar with this image. Its represent the relationship between the technology, pedagogy and also content knowledge. From the Wikipedia, TPACK is defines as:

Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) attempts to capture some of the essential qualities of knowledge required by teachers for technology integration in their teaching, while addressing the complex, multifaceted and situated nature of  teacher knowledge.

This is an example of TPACK in my lesson:

Year: 4 Cekal

Subject: English

Topic: More stories

Language Focus: Nouns – Parts of the shoes: Shoelaces, tongue, toe etc.

Content of this lesson was that the students will be able to read and understand the story and also acquire new nouns in the story. For the technological knowledge, I had used power point presentation during the pre-reading stage. I showed the pictures of parts of shoes to the students as a preparation for them to read the story “The Elves and the Shoemaker”.  The students seem quite attracted to the slide show presentation.

I also used the power point presentation to show the story to the students. I transferred the story into power point presentation and also with pictures for every page. I think this was very helpful as the students could read the story and also view the pictures to enhance their understanding of the story. I had incorporated cooperative learning style during the lesson. While the students were reading the story, they need to discuss with each other to guess the story. I would show the first slide to the students and they would read the story. Then, they need to discuss with their friends to guess the continuation of the story. By doing this, the students will be more attracted to the lesson as if they were involve in the story.

This is how I incorporate TPACK in my lesson. I believe that it really help me to make my lesson to be more fun and attractive.
