TPACK: Using technology for enriched experiences of content

I’ve discovered, more by chance, the DEVOLVE website (http://www.open.ac.uk/darwin/devolve-me.php), which allows you to make a “[…] journey back in time [and] to see yourself as you would have looked as an early human”. To me, this is a nice example of a digital technology tool that allows you to have enriched and personally connected experiences of a content knowledge domain (here: biology, anthropology or paleontology). Such a technological tool can easily be used as a learning/teaching tool when you add pedagogical principles like discovery based learning, for instance.

more over, the fact that kids could use their own pictures and DE-volve themselves would make the exploration of evolutionary anthropology emotionally meaningful.
