TPACK is a technology integration framework that identifies three types of knowledge instructors need to combine for successful edtech integration—technological, pedagogical, and content knowledge (a.k.a. TPACK).

The center of the diagram, otherwise known as TPACK, represents a full understanding of how to teach with technology. Keep in mind that this is not the same as having knowledge of each of the three primary concepts individually. Instead, the point of TPACK is to understand how to use technology to teach concepts in a way that enhances student learning experiences. 

To reach this we created material in two projects:

  • GI Learner, an Erasmus+ project more focusing on Technological & Content knowledge.
    The project created a learning line on geospatial thinking in the geography class. To support the use of the learning line lessons were created for pupils age K7 to K12, as well as templates and instructions for the teacher to create his own lesson.
    Also a self-evaluation test is available so that pupils can analyse their own progress over the 6 years from K7 to K12.
  • GI Pedagogy, an Erasmus+ project more focusing on the Pedagogical Knowledge
    The project focuses on innovative pedagogy specifically applied to national curricula, and aimes at trainee and early career teachers, developed as a response to the need to train teachers how to integrate innovative GI (Geographical Information) Science pedagogy into their lessons.
