TPACK Design Assessment

In this assignment, as in all assignments, I expect evidence of your thoughtful reflection on and engagement with course readings, workshops, discussions and lectures.

Specifically, this is an applied assignment.  For example, I expect you to demonstrate your understanding of concepts, such as technological affordances, not merely by defining it broadly and abstractly as it is introduced in Martin (2012). Rather, thoroughly develop Martin’s (2012) definition in your own words with specific technologies integrated into your TELE.

The assessment is based on the details described throughout the assignment descriptions.  From the course assessment rubric, the assessment for the TPACK design emphasizes Presence (attention to the particulars of the assignment) and Appreciation (attention to the uses of course readings and other source materials).
