This poster presentation proposes a re-envisioned model of TPACK (Mishra & Koehler, 2006) and illustrates its usefulness in framing technology professional learning for teachers and teacher educators or technology workshops. Four design elements useful for developing learning opportunities for teacher development of TPACK-in-Practice also emerged from a series of research studies, and include: (a) modeling a technology-enhanced activity type (learning with the tool) to set the context and purpose for tool use, (b) integrating ‘pedagogical dialog’ in a modeled lesson, (c) developing TK (in context) through short tool demonstrations, and (d) applying acquired technical skills and knowledge in additional practice tasks using the activity type.
