Through the Teacher's Eyes: Unpacking the TPACK of Digital Fabrication Integration in Middle School Language Arts
ARTICLE

Journal of Research on Technology in Education Volume 46, Number 2, ISSN 1539-1523

Abstract

Digital fabrication consists of manufacturing design technology that is used to facilitate the creation of physical objects. Existing research suggests digital fabrication technology can inspire student creativity and innovation in mathematics and science. However, there is a lack of research that informs teacher education by identifying practical pedagogies to meaningfully integrate digital fabrication into language arts curricula, which this article seeks to achieve. Guided by the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework of 21st century teacher knowledge, this case study explores one middle school teacher's yearlong journey as she integrated digital fabrication technology to create pop-up books in an afterschool program with a language arts focus.
