THE ICT IN FOCUS

The idea of Technological knowledge is curved out of
knowledge on the standard technologies like books and blackboard which was
advanced to internet and digital media.

The knowledge also contained requirements to manipulate the
technologies. Therefore, Technological knowledge is the ability to have
technical know-how of the digital technologies ie computers.

If Technological knowledge can be skills to install and remove some devices or programs I can say , yes am coming up and approaching the state of having knowledge on
technology.

Back home- Nigeria I was one of the resource persons who
presented a paper on the use of internet in news reporting and writing,
organised by our local chapter of the Nigeria Union of Journalists- NUJ, for
its members.

I know that Technology can be a broad concept with different
meanings and faces, but having involve in using online resources in  a new learning environment such as the
BB9  my ability to manipulate the digital
resources will improve.

Of course according to the Mishra and Koehler TPACK
framework, Technological knowledge can combine the following:-

  • Content knowledge- if one has knew the content
    with the technological knowledge that will form , Technological Content
    Knowledge-TCK
  • Pedagogical knowledge- someone with
    technological knowledge and  has the
    pedagogical knowledge I,e methodological part, then he forms- Technological
    Pedagogical Knowledge-TPK.
  • Content Knowledge and Pedagogical Knowledge, for
    one to combine the two with Technological Knowledge, it will form the TPACK.

Therefore, going by the above
steps, ways to improve my technological knowledge can :-

  1. Putting more effort to explore the university
    Blackboard
  2. Through consultations with my course mate and
    professionals on ICT
  3. Explore more ways of using the digital
    technologies in the media and educational institutions.

Also as part of measures to controle the use of internet in the country the Indian government decided to block some indecent content from the internet. bellow is a video clip from you tube by Aljazeera.,/p>

Below is the TPACK framework builds on Shulman’s idea of Pedagogical Content Knowledge.
