TIM x 2 – Integration Matrices

The latest TIM has been produced by the Arizona K12 Center at Northern Arizona University. TIM stands for Technology Integration Matrix and illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K–12 students. We’ve added the Arizona matrix to our technology integration page.

The Arizona TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, collaborative, constructive, authentic and goal directed. Five levels of technology integration (entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion and transformation) are associated with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, 25 cells are created that include lessons plans with short videos of the lesson implementation.

Florida has been through two revisions of their TIM. Currently in version 2.0, the Florida TIM follows the same format as the Arizona TIM, but also breaks examples into content areas and grade level.

Both the Arizona and Florida Matrix can be found on our Technology Integration page.
