This paper presentation demonstrates how TPACK and problem-based learning are woven in the fabric of a successful teacher preparation course final project. As a final project, elementary education content area pedagogy students are required to work together in three person teams to produce a thematic unit that includes: (1) an authentic problem situation, (2) external links to student made research based graphic presentations providing social science, math, language arts, and science related information for children to assist with completing the tasks embedded in their problem situation, (3) an external link to a movie made by the various cohort groups using web 2.0 animation to provide more relevant information to introduce the essential questions concerning the problem presented, and (4) an external link to a United Streaming Discovery Channel video that also addresses and provides instructional insights into the problem situation.
