LSRI PhD student Ipek Saralar’s Publication Success

Congratulations to Ipek Saralar who published her first journal article titled “The Evaluation of a Pre-service Mathematics Teacher’s TPACK: A Case of 3D Shapes with GeoGebra” in the International Journal for Technology in Mathematics Education (IJTME). Below is the editor’s introduction to the paper. Want to read more?

The mathematical topic is 3D shapes and the trainee teacher (Deniz) used GeoGebra to teach the topic. Deniz’s TPACK was assessed according to four themes: curriculum and assessment, learning, teaching, and access, comprising five levels of recognising, accepting, adapting, exploring and advancing. Through observations and interview, Saralar, Işıksal-Bostan and Akyüz found that Deniz’s TPACK showed an observable development in teaching with technology, and it seems dynamic and multiple...
