TPACK game, the Matt Koehler version

by | Friday, August 13, 2010

There have been various descriptions of the TPACK game… some of which I have written about earlier.

Finally, Matt Koehler has mocked up a version of the game online. He created it for the EPET Hybrid PhD program he was teaching this summer. Though he isn’t sure the game is really ready for “prime-time” he does have it available on his website. Check it out: The TPACK Game, Matt Koehler version. The instructions are simple:
