1. LEARNINGEPISODE4 – Tools of the Trade (TeachingAids Bank)
My Learning Episode Overview
Episode 4 provides an opportunity for me to examine my own knowledge about
how to use technology in teaching through the TPACK framework.
My Intended Learning outcomes
In this Episode, I must be able to use my technology pedagogical content knowledge
in choosing appropriate teacher resources to use for a particular unit of study.
My Performance Criteria
I will be rated along the following:
a. Quality of my observation and documentation,
b. Completeness and depth of analysis,
c. Depth and clarity of classroom observation-based reflection,
d. Completeness, organization, clarity of portfolio and
e. Time of submission of my portfolio.
My Learning Essentials
The TPACK Framework
The TPACK is a framework that shows the types of knowledge involved in the
teacher’s capacity to integrate technology in the teaching-learning process. This was
proposed by Mishra and Koehler in 2007. These three types or bodies of knowledge can be
described separately but they work together, each time you (as the future teacher) use
technology for instruction. Reflect on yourself as you read about the three:
1. Technological Knowledge. This refers not only on whether you are computer literate but
also on knowing what technology is best to use and how they should be utilized in
teaching. Technology here can be as simple as the chalk and the blackboard or as
complicated as augmented reality. As technology is ever-changing, your technological
knowledge is also something that must be ever-developing.

2. Pedagogical Knowledge. This refers to the principles and strategies of teaching. It
includes your knowledge of the learners, and in formulating objectives, designing activities
and assessing your learners.
3. Content Knowledge. This refers to how well you know the subject area or topic that you
will teach. It includes how wide and how deep you know about what you will teach.
You can see from the diagram that two circles overlap with each other, while all
three of them overlap as well. Each two-circle overlap indicates the interaction of
technological and content knowledge (TCK), content and pedagogical knowledge (CPK), and
pedagogical and technological knowledge.
The middle most part of the diagram shows the interaction or interfacing of the
three, which is the technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK). This is what is
very important for you to be able to use technology effectively in teaching. You need to be
aware of your strengths and weakness in the three and reflect how you can grow in each
one and use them together as best as you can.
Have this framework in mind as you analyze and reflect in this episode about your
own knowledge in using technology in teaching.

To realize my IntendedLearningOutcomes,Iwill workmywaythroughthese steps:
Step 1. Decide on a specific content
area and the level of learner’s
Step 2. Find out the learning resources
relevant to topics that are available.
Step 4. Organize them in a box.
Step 3. Develop a pile of teaching aids
(flashcards, pictures, cut-outs
4. LEARNINGEPISODE4 – Tools of the Trade (TeachingAids Bank)
Subject Area/Topic: English - Stress
Grade/Year Level: Grade8 Students
Big Ideas about the topic
Degrees of Stress
At the end of the discussion, students mustbeable to:
Identify the meaning of stress;
Differentiatethe degrees of stress; and
Read sentence that emphasizes the word stress and noun construct.
5. LEARNINGEPISODE4 – Tools of the Trade (TeachingAids Bank)
1. What skills did you have which helped you prepare the materials? What skills did
you lack that made it difficult for you? (Technological Knowledge)
One of my skills that helped me to prepare the materials is I am good in using
computers and I have knowledge making power points but I am impatient in
putting effects on my power point.
2. Discuss some strategies on how you will use the materials you included here in this
episode. (Pedagogical Knowledge)
One of strategies that I will use is I will make sure that my materials can get
the attention of my students so they will nit get bored when I am teaching.
3. How well do you know the topic you have chosen? (Content Knowledge) Discuss the
big ideas of this topic that you would want to focus on.
Before choosing the topic, I make sure that I have knowledge about the topic.
The big ideas of my topic are the degrees of stress: Primary, Secondary,
Tertiary and weak stress. Another big ideas are word stress; the shifting
depending on what the speakers want to emphasize.
An Observation/Survey Guide
1. Are there learning resources useful for your topic in the resource center you visited?
2. Are the available materials appropriate for your target grade/year level?
3. List down those that can be useful for your topic.
4. What other materials can you make? (Like flash cards, posters, cut-outs, transparencies, etc)?

1. Reflect how your technological knowledge (TK), pedagogical knowledge
(PK) and content knowledge (CK) worked together in fulfilling the tasks in
By having technological knowledge the teacher can easily discuss his/her
topic thru the help of computers; to get ideas and also it help the teacher
to present and discuss the lesson to the student. And by having a
pedagogical knowledge the teacher can teach the lesson effectively
because of the strategies or principles that will help him/her to get the
attention of the student and to help the student to understand the lesson
easily. And lastly by having a content knowledge you will be have a smooth
discussion to the students because you are familiar to the lesson you are
discussing, you have wide knowledge to the topic. If you will combine
these three you will be having an effective teaching.
2. What are some of the things you can do to enhance and enrich your
technological, pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) to be able to
facilitate an active, interesting, learning and fun-filled learning
environment in the future?
To enhance my TPACK framework, Create a learning and sharing culture
where there are opportunities for me to develop my technological skills. I
will also make sure that I will make student an opportunity to show their
technological skill so I will learn from them.
