For the record, I was quoted in today’s Detroit Free Press in an article titled: School districts expanding technology, but training is key to success. In addition, two of my partners in crime (Matt Koehler & Candace Marcotte) were mentioned in an Edutopia article titled: How to Integrate Tech When It Keeps Changing. The idea of TPACK connects both articles, though the Free Press article does not mention the idea directly.
