TPACK, teaching, Bibliometric Analysis


TPACK (Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge) model is quite new teaching model in the science of education field which found about five years ago. There are still some room for improvements and discussion to develop this model. Some studies argue that the model is not relevant to practical context due to its vague definitions. Some studies argue that the model is the best for learning quality in technology. Thus, it is important to do more comprehensive studies in order to investigate the factors which related to TPACK model.  This article to clarify which items are relevant to TPACK, it is important to map the database associated with TPACK. By conducting bibliometric analysis and adjusting the WoS the abbreviation from Web of Science indexing filters by category, this article seeks to provide a database linked to TPACK themes that have been published in WoS indexed publications in the past five years. The collected findings are categorized based on metric comparisons, the top 10 publications, the top 20 journals that publish articles regarding TPACK, and visualization using bibliometric analysis.
