In times of an ever-increasing speed of technological innovation the ability to take a critical media perspective more and more depends on the knowledge about technology and its affordances and implications. In his talk, Marco Kalz will develop the idea of media literacy from the perspective of the TPACK model and will provide some examples cases for technological (content) knowledge and the ability to take a critical perspective pointing to some future challenges for curriculum development for teacher education and beyond.
