PurposeThis study aims to describe the pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of a kindergarten educator who implements a lesson plan about informal inferential reasoning designed in a lesson study group.Design/methodology/approachTo this end, we analyzed teaching interventions in two kindergarten lessons focused on the playful task of tossing two coins, associated with inferential statistical reasoning. The study highlights the importance of arguing and promoting this reasoning to develop statistical thinking. It is crucial to recognize how early students can be subject to learning experiences that promote a language of uncertainty, assess the evidence provided by the data, and make generalizations.FindingsThe results reveal that while the educator demonstrated knowledge and skills relevant to the curriculum and conceptual teaching strategies, the understanding of the content by the students and the integration of the PCK components still present a challenge.Practical implicationsThe lesson study collaborative teaching practices that promote PCK have proven effective for informing the design and implementation of instructional practices supporting the development of early statistical thinking in young children.Originality/valueThe study enriches the knowledge regarding the potential of the lesson study (LS) in the professional learning of kindergarten educators. It also contributes to a comprehensive approach based on authentic playful experiences in grade K that supports the development of early statistical thinking in young children.

This study aims to determine the level of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) proficiency. This type of research is descriptive quantitative research. The instruments used to measure TPACK are in the form of questionnaires and interview questionnaires using a Likert scale with 5 scales. The samples of this study were Electrical Power Installation Engineering (EPIE) teachers at SMK N 6 Malang, totaling 7 people and Autotronic Engineering (AE) teachers at SMK N 6 Malang totaling 6 people. The results of the study are EPIE teachers' TK skills are in very good criteria with an average of 68, while AE teachers' kindergarten skills are in good criteria with an average of 53. EPIE teachers' PK skills are in good criteria with average - an average of 67.3, while the PK skills of AE teachers are in good criteria with an average of 75.2. EPIE teachers' CK skills are in very good criteria with an average of 31, while the CK skills of AE teachers are in very good criteria good with an average of 31. EPIE teachers' TCK skills are in very good criteria with an average of 26, while AE teachers' TCK skills are in good criteria with an average of 22. EPIE teachers' PCK skills are at criteria very good with an average of 57, while the PCK skills of AE teachers are in very good criteria with an average of 56. EPIE teachers' TPK skills are in good criteria with an average of 26.6, while the TPK skills of AE teachers are at good criteria with an average of 26.8. EPIE teachers' TPACK skills are in good criteria with an average of 18.4, while AE teachers' TPACK skills are in good criteria with an average of 18.2.

Abstract This paper reports on a professional learning (PL) project conducted over one year at a senior secondary school in New Zealand. Subject teachers volunteered to work with one another and a facilitator to identify the linguistic demands of their subjects, adapt teaching materials, and try out teaching approaches congruent with research evidence about teaching emergent bilingual (EB) learners. This paper explores cases of subject-specific partnerships and how participants’ responses to the PL appeared to impact their existing pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). The PL sessions were facilitated through audio-recorded Zoom meetings. A thematic analysis was conducted, and the findings were analysed using an adaptation of Davison’s (2006) framework to map how participants engaged with the PL and collaborated with one another on new pedagogies. The study suggests that these teachers accommodated linguistic teaching approaches, but their adaptation to language PCK may have remained at a compliant level.

AbstractThis paper provides a historical review of the interview research that has been used by science educators to investigate children’s basic astronomy knowledge. A wide range of strategies have been developed over the last 120 years or so as successive teams of researchers have endeavoured to overcome the methodological difficulties that have arisen. Hence, it looks critically at the techniques that have been developed to tackle the problems associated with interviews, questionnaires and tests used to research cognitive development and knowledge acquisition. We examine those methodologies which seem to yield surer indications of how young people (at different ages) understand everyday astronomical phenomena—the field often referred to as children’s cosmologies. Theoretical ideas from cognitive psychology, educational instruction and neuroscience are examined in depth and utilised to critique matters such as the importance of subject mastery and pedagogical content knowledge on the part of interviewers; the merits of multi-media techniques; the roles of open-ended vs. structured methods of interviewing; and the need always to recognise the dynamism of memory in interviewees. With illustrations and protocol excerpts drawn from recent studies, the paper points to what researchers might usefully tackle in the years ahead and the pitfalls to be avoided.

Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk mengetahui profil Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) mahasiswa calon guru matematika Program Studi Pendidikan Matematika, Universitas Malikussaleh. Pendekatan penelitian yang digunakan adalah pendekatan kuantitatif dengan jenis rancangan penelitian survei. Adapun yang menjadi populasi adalah mahasiswa semester 5 dan 7 yang telah lulus matakuliah yang berkaitan dengan konsep dasar matematika, konsep pedagogik, dan penggunaan ICT. Untuk mengukur TPACK, 44 soal telah disusun berdasarkan indikator masing-masing komponen TPACK. Setelah validasi, hasilnya 37 pertanyaan valid dengan koefisien reliabilitas cronbach alfa 0,590. Data dianalisis menggunakan statistika deskriptif. Hasil Penelitian menunjukkan bahwa (1) Profil Technological Knowledge (TK),  Content Knowledge (CK), Pedagogical Knowledge (PK), dan  Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK) mahasiswa mayoritas berada pada level sedang; (2) Profil Technological Content Knowledge (TCK), Technological Pedagogical Knowledge (TPK), dan Technological Pedagogical and Content Knowledge (TPACK) mahasiswa mayoritas berada pada level rendah; dan (3) Dari tujuh komponen TPACK, ada dua komponen yang lebih menonjol, yaitu PK, dan  PCK. Hasil tersebut menjadi masukan bahwa dalam proses perkuliahan perlu ditekankan pada penguasaan teknologi, materi matematika serta pengintegrasian teknologi.
