Abstract

Situated in communities of practice (CoP) and technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) frameworks, this multiple case study explores the mediation of TPACK in a globally-distributed online community of practice of English language teachers, called Webheads in Action (WiA). Derived from a larger online ethnography conducted with this community, the study uses field notes from online participant observation, interviews, and archived email data to describe the characteristics of this community’s activities and culture, as well as two selected members’ lived experiences in their involvement with this community as it pertains to pedagogically-sound technology integration. Through content and inductive analysis, we demonstrate ways of and argue for the potential of developing an understanding of meaningful technology integration through participation in an online community of practice, which provides a mediational space for in-service English language teachers.
