Developing Trans-disciplinary creativity, rethinking the C in TPACK
Friday, March 11 3:05-3:25 PM
This brief paper discusses the 21st century skills movement, and transformative learning theory as a framework for fostering these skills in both teachers and students. TPACK is discussed as a bridge between theory and practice and as a route towards preparing educators for teaching in the 21st century and to natives of the 21st century. A masters level course in educational technology is presented as an example of bringing together 21st century skills, trans-disciplinary teaching and learning, and the TPACK framework. The course is briefly discussed and examples of student products are presented. Finally, conclusions and possible future directions are discussed.
