Abstract: What does TPACK look like in preservice teacher preparation programs? This project explores candidates’ knowledge and experiences after participation in a TPACK-focused learning unit. This research uses mixed methods of survey data, interview and document analysis in order to investigate preservice teachers’ discrete knowledge of technology, pedagogy, and content. It discusses the implications of integrating TPACK into teacher education on teacher candidates’ development of curriculum.
