Understanding Teacher Candidate Students' Level of TPACK Mastery In Learning That Applies to Ethnosciencetech-Oriented Lecture Programs


The development of the Ethnosciencetech-Oriented Lecture Program is motivated by the importance of mastering TPACK by prospective teacher students so that they can teach effectively with technology and also integrate ethnoscience into learning. This study aims to describe the skills gained by prospective teachers while mastering TPACK. The results show that they experience a growth of knowledge in each stage, starting from perception to conception and finally to action. Students in the conception category know the conceptual relationship between Content Knowledge (including ethnoscience), Pedagogical Knowledge, and Technological Knowledge. Students in the action category know the goals of Content Knowledge (including ethnoscience), Pedagogical Knowledge, and Technological Knowledge.
