Scaffolding the TPACK framework in reading and language arts: New literacies, new minds.

Hiller SpiresLisa Hervey and Tanya Watson

Through information from three data sources – teacher surveys, teacher-generated analogies, and online reflections – this study attempted to answer the question; how does a project-based inquiry model assist TPACK development and propel ELA teachers to integrate technology?  In the discussion section, we advance two culminating themes that emerged from synthesizing results across the three data sources: a) Technology Use Facilitates Students Learning and Creativity; and b) Teachers Create New Educational Futures through Innovation and Collaboration. Additionally we explore some of the challenges that educators face as they strive to transform ELA teaching and learning for the 21st century.
