TPACK – the game by Dr. Matt Koehler

August 16, 2010

As some of you may be aware, one of my big interests in technology is the integration of it into the classroom.  I discovered TPACK about a year and a half ago and have been trying to keep tabs on its development ever since.  Last year, I attended a session with Dr. Judi Harris, a leading expert in the use of TPACK, and the participants all participated in an activity called the TPACK game.  The latest version of the game was written by Matt Koehler, one of the best known writers on TPACK.  His version, which is web based can be found here.

The game allows for groups or individuals to practice their TPACK in authentic ways.  I hope that this type of activity leads to many discussions between teachers.
