Cooking with TPACK Video

For my cooking with TPACK video, I chose the task of making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I had to use a small plate, a Rubbermaid plastic bowl and a spatula. In the video, I had to re-purpose the spatula so I could make the sandwich. Since the end of the spatula wouldn’t fit in either jar, I had to use the handle to scoop out the peanut butter and the jelly. In my opinion, using the handle to scoop out the peanut butter wasn’t very difficult. The most difficult part of the experience was getting the jelly out of the jar. I had to tilt the jar so it would fall out of the jar. I learned that sometimes it’s necessary to re-purpose an object to fit your needs. I feel that this experience can relate greatly to my future classroom. I may not have all the particular objects I need in the future, but the important thing to remember is how I can use what I have to fit the needs of my students. An example of this can be seen in technology. We may be capable of using different programs in our classroom, but it’s important for us to be able to incorporate the needs of students in these programs. It’s all about how we use the services that are offered to us. It may be difficult and involve a heavy thought process, but we should remember that we are capable of providing to our students even if it means re-purposing an object or program to fit their needs.
