Technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPACK) is a relatively new learning approach in education. The practice of implementing this method includes mastery of technology, pedagogical, and learning content knowledge. All three are essential and in line with current educational needs. Therefore, teachers need to be able to apply the TPACK framework in lesson plans. This study aimed to analyze the application of TPACK in lesson plans in elementary schools in Gunungsitoli City, North Sumatra Province. This research is a mixed methods research of explanatory sequential type. The research sample in this study was the lesson plans with 5 lesson plans from six teachers. The collected lesson plans were analyzed by checking the TPACK framework and were validated using triangulation technique, such as documentation, questionnaires, and interviews. Based on the research that has been conducted, the results show that the application of TPACK in lesson plans in elementary schools in Gunungsitoli City is included in the good criteria, with an average score of 77.50%. It is hoped that this research can be an evaluation and material for the development of other researchers, teachers, schools, and the government regarding learning methods and can be used to explore the use of technological advances as modernization in the field of education, especially in the education sector.
