Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference PaperResearchpeer-review


A singularly significant contribution to the TPACK community of researchers has been the curation of publication details of TPACK related research since 2009 in the TPACK newsletter published online at http://tpack.org. This research explored abstracts from books, book chapters, journal articles and dissertations from newsletters published between December 2016 and October 2017 (n=180) using an emergent and thematic synthesis review process. Results indicate that the content of abstracts are highly variable and large percentages fail to include information about number of participants, content level, or type of analysis used. We discuss potential implications of these findings for the research community
