TPACK (wiki + image) update

by | Tuesday, February 10, 2009

A couple of TPACK related updates.

First, the outdated tpck.org has been replaced by the more up-to-date and more appropriate TPACK.org. [The tpck.org site hasn’t really gone away, but we plan to phase it out over time].

Second, we keep getting requests for the TPCK image (below). A new and updated high-resolution version of the image can be now downloaded from tpack.org or directly from here.

Third, just in case you missed it, the first TPACK newsletter is now available here.
