Abstract: As TPACK has taken hold in the teacher education landscape, researchers and practitioners have begun to develop tools and techniques for assessing this type of teachers’ knowledge (Abbitt, 2011). Nevertheless, measuring TPCK is a difficult task. Acknowledging the challenge of identifying let alone measuring TPCK, the researchers of this study set out to determine whether or not TPCK or some of its components could be identified in pre-service teachers’ written lesson plans and reflections as well as podcasts of lesson implementations and reflections on technology integration.
