TPACK 2010


The topic can be selected from the curriculum of the subject area. 

A project can be created:

1. As an extension activity to tie a particular topic to an application
 in real life or a common experience:
Example: Topic: conservation of energy
Project: How do roller coasters work?

2. As tutorials to reinforce concepts learned in the classroom
Example:Explain the processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration 

3. As an exploration of topics that are not generally covered in class:
Example: How does atomic spectra allows astronomers to identify
elements in stars?


It is important to create clear guidelines for the project.

Some questions to ask:

- Individual activity or a cooperative group setting?

- How is differentiated instruction addressed? In the content, the process or the product?
- What level of inquiry is used?
What items should be included in a rubric?


There are a variety of digital tools that can be used AFTER the content and pedagogy decisions have been made.


Tools for collaboration: wiki, blog, Voicethread, Glogster

Tools for creation:  Prezi, Xtranormal, Glogster, Pixton, Wordle, GoAnimate, Voki, OneTrueMedia
