Shahadat Hossain Khan, University of Sydney, Australia

The discovery of modern technology is compelled teachers to encounter new challenges in their teaching. Therefore, there is an increasing demand for professional development programs to include ICT along with pedagogy and substantial (content) knowledge into teaching-learning context. In this paper, the author presents a model for integrating ICT for teacher training programs in Bangladesh, which is based on Technology Pedagogy Content knowledge (TPCK) model. Firstly, this study shows that how teachers can undertake three different phases for improving their use of technology to facilitate effective instruction. This proposed model investigates pedagogical and contextual (specific subject content) issues that are required to consider for effective use of ICT into teacher training programs. It focuses on the challenges of using ICT in professional development programs in Bangladesh. This study secondly, concentrates on conclusive suggestions to implement the proposed model. It is expected that this article might be beneficial for the teachers, trainers, policymakers and other educators who are directly and indirectly accountable for teachers’ professional development programs for introducing ICT in Bangladesh. Finally it concludes with emerging research issues and offers pertinent guidelines in the context of Bangladesh.
