Let’s see how it has
As of October, my knowledge in terms of technology was
quite limited, and the connections between it and
content/pedagogy were small. In the past few
months, however, I have been able to increase my
technological knowledge very much; I have now learned
concepts, programs, and tools which I previously did not
know existed! Examples of these include
PLNs, Screencasts, and mLearning, just to name a few. I
now feel a lot more confident in this area, but will need to
continue my growth in connecting it to the areas of
pedagogy, and especially content.
Over the past semester, I have managed to increase my
pedagogical knowledge with particular focus on my
minor subject, drama, thanks to the curriculum course I
took. In addition to this, one of the areas this course
focused on particularly was integrating technology
authentically within the drama classroom. As a result, I
now feel more comfortable as an educator overall, but
especially as one who can utilize technology in creative
and meaningful ways in the classroom.
This past semester I increased my content knowledge in a
variety of ways, from learning about different dramatic
forms and disciplines, to studying the history of Europe
and its effects on the world. These areas comingled with
my advancement in technological knowledge, creating
stronger connections than those which existed before.
With that said, though, I am still somewhat unsure about
the connections between technology and content, as this
is an area which is still fairly new to me.
So what does all of this mean?
With this brief discussion of my
personal growth outlined, I invite

improved) Venn Diagram for my

Furthering my knowledge in TPACK means that I am more
fluently able to integrate concepts and ideas from
different realms of education. In particular, my newfound
technological knowledge will be a huge asset as a move
forward, as I am extremely interested in the idea of a
flipped classroom being utilized at the high school level.
Screencasts and class sites like Edmodo will be integral
to my attempts at making this concept a reality. In
addition, using tablets and smart phones is an exciting
way to boost engagement, but also encourage students
to take ownership of their own learning and explore areas
which they themselves are interested in. Overall, the
connections between ideas which TPACK emphasizes is
the biggest asset which this framework (and possibly this
course) has provided me.
