Integrate Technology into the Classroom

 

TheTechnology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K–12 students.

TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments—active, constructive, goal directed (reflective), authentic and collaborative. TIM also associates five levels of technology integration—entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion and transformation— with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells.

The original matrix was produced at the Florida Center for Instructional Technology in the College of Education at the University of South Florida. Check out the original matrix and click on each level to access more resources.

What is the Arizona Technology Integration Matrix?

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: active, collaborative, constructive, authentic, and goal directed (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). 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. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells.
