Abstract

Technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) is a well-known theoretical framework that has reshaped contemporary understanding of the interplay between forms of knowledge required by expert teachers. This paper draws on recent thinking and previously unpublished empirical data to shift the research focus to more closely examine the contexts in which TPACK is developed and enacted. In particular, this paper examines the way knowledge and activities of teachers are dialogically linked to the contextual conditions that surround them by considering teachers’ knowledge, identity and practice as part of a sociocultural, situated context. Two conclusions result from this work indicating the enactment of TPACK in a Community of Practice is not always consensual and that the reification of TPACK enactment in a Community of Practice is influenced by the power dynamics of its members. Finally, an elaborated model and suggestions for future research are presented.
