The TECHNOLOGY INTEGRATION MATRIX
- Provides a framework for defining and evaluating technology integration
- Sets a clear vision for effective teaching with technology
- Gives teachers and administrators a common language for setting goals
- Helps target professional development resources effectively
The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM)
illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments:
The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments.
- goal directed (i.e., reflective),
- authentic, and
- collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003).
Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells.
