Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) in Action: A Descriptive Study of Secondary Teachers’ Curriculum-Based, Technology-Related Instructional Planning
In this study, the authors were interested to examine the nature and development of teachers’ TPACK as it is applied in instructional planning. The authors also examined how planning changes when professional development focuses upon the design of content-based learning activities that are supported by selective and purposeful integration of educational technologies. The participants in this study were seven experienced social studies teachers from six different U.S. states. The results indicate that a content-based, activity-types approach to technologically inclusive instructional planning is compatible with existing approaches to teaching.

Examining Authentic Intellectual Work with a Historical Digital Documentary Inquiry Project in A Mandated State Testing Environment
In this case study, the authors examine whether student construction of digital documentaries on curriculum-based topics may offer potential to both support students’ acquisition of content knowledge and their engagement in authentic intellectual work. To explore this potential, the authors document two teachers’ efforts to engage their students in a 5-day digital documentary project to challenge their students to more fully understand Irish immigration in the early 19th century. In the end, the authors were encouraged that digital documentaries provided opportunities for students to engage in authentic intellectual work in the context of this standards-based curriculum.

Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge in Action: A Case Study of a Middle School Digital Documentary Project
In recent years researchers in educational technology have begun to look closely at the complexity of integrating technology in K–12 classrooms. The development of the notion of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) provides a useful theoretical framework to explore the requisite forms of teacher knowledge required to effectively integrate technology in classroom work. This case study explores the three domains of teacher knowledge and their intersections in a sixth grade digital documentary project.
