This week, discussions were focussed around PCK (Pedagogical Content Knowledge) and the Khan Academy. A post written by Strauss (2012), reflects what pedagogical content knowledge is and then discusses how the Khan Academy refuses to acknowledge this way of teaching. She explains that teachers that have strong PCK understand educational research whilst having the experience to understand what students find easy, hard and ways in which they can learn effectively. I find this a highly important skill to be able to complete. Renee’s blog gave me effective ways of developing our own PCK as pre-service teachers. These include creating understanding from other units, using curriculum docs and gaining our own classroom experiences.
