Mishra and Koehler’s TPACK concept builds on the original ideas of Shulman by adding Technological Knowledge to Pedagogical Content Knowledge. The Cliff Notes version is that technology is a tool for improving the instruction of your content.  No teacher should be integrating technology into the classroom if that technology isn’t going to enrich the content or improve the overall pedagogy. This is important because just as you wouldn’t waste time planning, teaching, and managing a lesson that doesn’t teach your students something meaningful, you don’t want to implement technology that isn’t going to better the lesson either in content or pedagogy. Technology won’t be strong in a classroom if it stands alone
