History Of Education

You are welcome to this Module in History of Education, which covers part of the course in Professional Education Studies. To understand the meaning of History of education, you need to know the key words, History and Education. Perhaps you are aware that History is a study of past events and developments some of which may have occurred many years of ago or might have taken place in the recent times. On the other hand, education can be defined as a process of teaching and learning. More about this will be examined in the module later. History of education is therefore a study of the past that focuses on educational issues. These include education systems, institutions, theories, themes and other related phenomena.

Introduction to the TPACK Framework
Conditions of Use:

Teaching with technology is not always simple, especially if our aim is to improve the quality of the learning that is happening in our classrooms. Because technology is generally pretty expensive and takes quite a bit of effort of organise and care for, it makes sense that we would want to get our money’s worth by making sure that the end product – the quality of learning – is as good as it can be and keeps improving. Otherwise, why bother?

In this unit, we are going to learn about one of the most popular and useful frameworks to help us think about teaching well and effectively with technology. It is called the TPaCK framework. TPaCK is short for Technological, Pedagogical and Content Knowledge.
