Abstract

This research focuses on pre-service teachers’ Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK). Research data consists of 61 lesson plans written by second-year pre-service teachers in a Finnish teacher education department. The lesson plans were analysed qualitatively using document and artefact analysis. Results provide insights into the contents of six areas of pre-service teachers’ TPACK. While the results indicate a rather narrow scope in the areas related to pedagogical knowledge, the variety of different technologies used was wide. Based on the analysed lesson plans, the impact of teacher education is evident. The chosen teaching and learning methods and technologies align closely with methods and technologies used within teacher education. Still, the results indicate that pre-service teachers need more encouragement to design and innovate new ways to use technology in pedagogically sound ways that align with 21st century skills.
