      the three components of teaching with technology are content, pedagogy, and technology

    3. There is no “one best way” to integrate technology into curriculum. Rather, integration efforts should be creatively designed or structured for particular subject matter ideas in specific classroom contexts.

      technology in the classroom should be specifically altered to fit the subject matter for that class

    4. this knowledge is unlikely to be used unless teachers can conceive of technology uses that are consistent with their existing pedagogical beliefs

      teachers are most likely not going to use new technological advances if it does not correspond to their pedagogical beliefs.

    6. Digital technologies—such as computers, handheld devices, and software applications—by contrast, are protean (usable in many different ways; Papert, 1980); unstable (rapidly changing); and opaque (the inner workings are hidden from users;

      digital technologies are said to be unstable since they arent part of the basic technologies

    7. specificity (a pencil is for writing, while a microscope is for viewing small objects); stability (pencils, pendulums, and chalkboards have not changed a great deal over time); and transparency of function (the inner workings of the pencil or the pendulum are simple and directly related to their function)

      these three are pedagogical technologies

    8. effective teaching depends on flexible access to rich, well-organized and integrated knowledge from different domains

      technology is one of the domains required for teaching

    9. The TPACK framework for teacher knowledge is described in detail, as a complex interaction among three bodies of knowledge: Content, pedagogy, and technology. The interaction of these bodies of knowledge, both theoretically and in practice, produces the types of flexible knowledge needed to successfully integrate technology use into teaching.

      the knowledge and practice of the three bodies of knowledge is essential for integrating technology into teaching
