The above article examines the important of Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK), which is basically an educators intuition as to how they should teach content based on the class that they have. So, it involves the educators experience of teaching the content, it includes the educators knowledge of the students in the classroom (their experience and interests), the atmosphere of the classroom, what makes a outcome difficult or easy to learn amongst other things.
PCK is a series of decisions that result in the ways in which a teacher will introduce content – for example, if an educator is introducing addition and he/she knows that his/her class is interested in ‘Littlest Pet Shop’ figurines at the moment, she/she may use these instead of counters to demonstrate simple one digit addition. This guarantees that the students in the class will be intrigued and they will be learning as they are simultaneously having fun.
This is PCK and this is why it is terribly important in the classroom.
