Transforming Teachers’ Knowledge Focused on Student Thinking with Technologies Using a Learning Trajectory Instructional Approach
This study explored the influence of a researcher-conjectured learning trajectory instructional approach toward the enhancement of teachers’ technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK). The study provides a rich description of how a learning trajectory, situated within a social metacognitive - constructivist instructional framework, influenced the participants’ thinking about their own thinking with the technology in learning mathematics/science and their thinking about their students’ thinking and understanding when learning with the technology. Three themes emerged: The learning trajectory as an ordered network of experiences is multi-faceted; the tools are used for sharing knowledge as well as constructing knowledge; and the tasks sequence the participant in the role of a ‘teacher as a student’ transitioning to the role of ‘teacher as a teacher’.

Knowledge Growth in Teaching Mathematics/Science with Spreadsheets: Moving PCK to TPACK through Online Professional Development
This study explored the impact of an online course on teacher participants’ developing knowledge for integrating dynamic spreadsheets in teaching at the elementary and middle school levels. The authors asked what is the impact of this online course about integrating dynamic spreadsheets as learning tools in science and mathematics on the teachers’ TPACK? As this study demonstrated, online programs have potential for providing opportunities and access for teachers to expand their knowledge for teaching their content with multiple technologies and thus extend teachers’ PCK to TPACK

What knowledge is needed to teach mathematics with digital technologies? The overarching construct, called technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge (TPACK), has been proposed as the interconnection and intersection of technology, pedagogy, and content knowledge. Mathematics Teacher TPACK Standards offer guidelines for thinking about this construct.A Mathematics Teacher Development Model describes the development of TPACK toward meeting these standards. The standards and model provide structured detail to further the work of various groups.
