Notes by Nada Salem Abisamra

This page is intended to just give you an idea about some of the content of the innovative TPCK Handbook
which is a WONDERFUL resource for any teacher or educational institution interested in
integrating technology in the classroom, in teaching for the future....
My gratitude goes to Dr. Natalie Milman and Dr. Brian Casemore for giving me the opportunity to get acquainted with it.
My notes are ... just notes I took while reading the handbook.
So, they are not linear... they are not exhaustive... they highly reflect my personal interests and needs.

Any Suggestion or Recommendation?
