TWG 8: Pedagogical reasoning and reflective practice: a framework for teaching in a digital age
Pedagogical reasoning and reflective practice are important means for teachers to continually professionalize and improve their teaching. These concepts also help us to understand why, how and with what results practising and prospective teachers use technology in their teaching. This emancipative form of professional development taps into teacher agency for digital technologies and resources. It is also critical for bringing new teachers into the practice, and enhancing the techno-pedago skills, knowledge and action through the joint lens' of TPACK (Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge) and PR&A (Technological Pedagogical Reasoning and Action). This is particularly important when considering the transition from novice to expert educator using technologies.
