This article utilizes five characteristics of “good” scientific theory: accuracy, consistency, scope, simplicity, and fruitfulness- taken from the work of Thomas Kuhn.
These characteristics use as points of departure for exploring affordances and limitations of TPACK (Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge) for researchers and teachers.
Based upon this examination, four suggestions are provided to support future research into technology integration that seek to help address limitations in the TPACK framework and to inform its appropriate and thoughtful use in research and practice.
- Enhancing TPACK With Assistive Technology: Promoting Inclusive Practices in Preservice Teacher Education
- Preparing Special Education Teachers for Teaching Mathematics and Science with Technology by Integrating the TPACK Framework into the Curriculum: A Study of Teachers’ TPACK Development through Assessment of Lesson Plans
