Math Lessons Collaboration Daily 04/23/2009

  • The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) was developed to help guide the complex task of evaluating technology integration in the classroom. Basic technology skills and integration of technology into the curriculum go hand-in-hand to form teacher technology literacy. Encouraging the seamless use of technology in all curriculum areas and promoting technology literacy are both key NCLB:Title II-D/EETT program purposes. The Inventory for Teacher Technology Skills (ITTS) companion tool is designed to help districts evaluate teachers’ current levels of proficiency with technology and is also used as a professional development planning and needs assessment resource. The TIM is envisioned as an EETT program resource which can help support the full integration of technology in Florida schools. What is in each cell?Each cell in the matrix will have a video (or several videos) which illustrate the integration of technology in classrooms where only a few computers are available and/or classrooms where every student has access to a laptop computer.Transformation The teacher creates a rich learning environment in which students regularly engage in activities that would have been impossible to achieve without technology.ActiveIndicator: Given ongoing access to online resources, students actively select and pursue topics beyond the limitations of even the best school library. CollaborativeIndicator: Technology enables students to collaborate with peers and experts irrespective of time zone or physical distances.ConstructiveIndicator: Students use technology to construct, share, and publish knowledge to a worldwide audience.AuthenticIndicator: By means of technology tools, students participate in outside-of-school projects and problem-solving activities that have meaning for the students and the community.Goal DirectedIndicator: Students engage in ongoing metacognative activities at a level that would be unattainable without the support of technology tools.You can download the Technology Integr
