Teacher leadership in technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK): A social network analysis
Hong, H. (2020). Teacher leadership in technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK): A social network analysis (Report No. SUG 20/16 HH). National Institute of Education (Singapore), Office of Education Research.
The purpose of this study is to examine teacher leadership in TPACK as reported by the teachers. Using SNA as a method, this study aims to make visible the invisible social influence through mapping the social networks among teachers in two case study schools. Semi-structured interviews will also be conducted to triangulate the findings. Findings from this study aims to explore and illuminate: (1) the relationship between teachers’ social network position and their teacher leadership in TPACK (TLTPACK); (2) the extent of the spread of TLTPACK across the school; and (3) the facilitating and hindering conditions for TLTPACK. To the best of the researchers’ knowledge, there is scant literature on the use of social network analysis to study educational leadership, and none has been found to cover the area of teacher leadership, in particular with the use of TPACK as a frame to study teacher leadership. This study hopes to contribute by filling this gap in current literature.
