Technology Integration Matrix

Read

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, constructive, goal directed, authentic, and collaborative. 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 as illustrated below.

The matrix is a five by five grid of suggestions and examples for using technology in education. The vertical axis of the matrix refers to learning environments and goals. Those environments are active, collaborative, constructive, authentic, and goal directed. TheĀ horizontal axis of the grid refers to the level of use of technology. The levels of use are entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation. You can click on any of those terms in the matrix for further explanations.
