Formatted Abstract/Summary
This paper will be providing a brief overview to the Teaching Teachers for the Future
(TTF) project, setting the scene and providing context for Australian higher education with
relation to TPACK. The TTF project aims to “embed ICT into everyday classroom learning by
transforming the delivery of teacher education” (Department of Education Employment and
Workplace Relations, 2010). The project is based on the idea that teachers who are expert at
teaching ICT will assist universities to transform their teaching courses to include more ICT. Thus
improving pre-service teachers’ technological knowledge and thereby empowering the next
generation of school teachers with the necessary skills to make ICT integral to their classroom
pedagogy. This paper will emphasize the various approaches taken by some of the 39 universities
involved.
