    Koehler, M. J., Mishra, P., Bouck, E. C., DeSchryver, M., Kereluik, K., Shin, T. S., et al. (2011). Deep-play: developing TPACK for 21st century teachers. International Journal of Learning Technology, 6(2), 146-163. The references to play and creativity link well with other material I've been reading recently about creativity and the education as preparation for living with surprises.
