Abstract: The intermediate overlap between technological knowledge, pedagogical knowledge and science content knowledge, as in TPK, TSCK, and PSCK, is critical to enriching science teaching and learning. The purpose of this study was to examine the incorporation of each of the three dual overlapping areas of the TPACK framework into different lessons within a science methods course. The theoretical framework guiding this study is the TPACK model. Action-research methods were employed to evaluate the efficiency and challenges of these specially designed lessons. This paper describes each of these lessons, and provides insight into the TPK, TSCK, and PSCK aspects that were ...
