Technology Use and Technology-Related Learning Experiences as Perceived by Indonesian Tertiary EFL Students

- Sofendi, Rita Inderawati, Machdalena Vianty


Research aiming at investigating Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) has been extensively conducted and measured by TPACK instruments developed in the context of ESL (English as a Second Language). Therefore, research within the context of EFL (English as a Foreign Language) and which applies a TPACK instrument specifically designed for the EFL context can give a significant contribution to the field of study. This study was conducted to map the TPACK of thirty-three EFL students at a teacher training institution in South Sumatera (Indonesia) by using a TPACK questionnaire specifically designed to map ICT-related learning experiences of Indonesian EFL students. The result of the analysis was presented in terms of the students’ TPACK perceptions concerning five domains: Technological Knowledge (TK), Technological Content Knowledge (TCK), Technological Pedagogical Knowledge (TPK), Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK), and Technology-Related Learning Experience (TLE).
