Abstract [en]

New technology provides teachers with a variety of ways for choosing forms and content of professional development. Teachers in Sweden widely use Facebook as a way of professional development. Within Facebook teachers create groups and pose questions and responses in issues regarding teaching they themselves choose. Our research focuses on the subjects mathematics and Swedish and maps what kind of questions and comments teachers post in relation to the different parts of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK), as described by Shulman.

Our question is if there are specific parts of PCK that appear of more interest in such Facebook groups. The outcome has implications for pre-service and in-service teacher education as the outcome will inform on challenges and difficulties teachers encounter once practicing as a teacher. Such challenges and difficulties have previously been hidden as teachers have not publically discussed these issues
