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 (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (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 as illustrated below. We appreciate your feedback.

You Don't Have to Be A Technology Whiz But You Do Need to Be Fearless
White This article proposes a continuum of ‘Visitors’ and ‘Residents’ as a replacement for Prensky’s much‐criticised Digital Natives and Digital Immigrants. Challenging the basic premises upon which Prensky constructed his typology, Visitors and Residents fulfil a similar purpose in mapping individuals’ engagement with the Web. We argue that the metaphors of ‘place’ and ‘tool’ most appropriately represent the use of technology in contemporary society, especially given the advent of social media. The Visitors and Residents continuum accounts for people behaving in different ways when using technology, depending on their motivation and context, without categorising them according to age or background. A wider and more accurate representation of online behaviour is therefore established.
I've given a talk with this title 3 or 4 times recently, so thought I'd best get around to blogging it. In the presentation I caution that you shouldn't really trust people who give lessons about the future - they're usually trying to sell you something. But lessons is a nice way to frame it, so treat them more as opinions I've come to over the past couple of years. Lesson 1: It's not just for geeks It is easy sometimes to get bogged down in conversations about the latest technology, API calls, RSS feeds, linked-data, etc and it seems very technical. Sometimes this has the effect of making academics think 'it doesn't relate to me'. digital scholarship
Computer Literacy:The Fourth Core Skill Standard Seven: Evaluating Information Students apply critical thinking skills to evaluate the relevance, reliability, and quality of information. Perhaps one of the most challenging problems (and greatest attributes) of new technology is the ability for anyone, anywhere to contribute content. It is essential for students learn digital literacy skills to be able to evaluate the information that they find. Standard Eight: Creating Digital Content Students learn to use technology to create digital content in multiple formats.
It’s older, more experienced teachers – not younger, so-called digital natives – who are experimenting more with new technology in the classroom, a new report suggests. Using technology in the classroom requires experience and guidance, report finds

Digital Technology's impact on writing
image credit: PugnoM on Flickr Copyright is a pretty a hot topic in the ELT world at the moment, and many people are discussing it and blogging about it. The law that applies to using lesson materials or blog posts written by other people is complicated, and teachers often find the various issues surrounding copyright confusing. This post sets out to explain some of the main aspects of the law relating to copyright and fair use as it applies to uploading, sharing and remixing materials for educational use, and seeks to provide guidelines for good practice in acknowledging, referencing and attributing online sources. What is copyright? Copyright gives people the legal right to decide how original work that they have created can be used once it has been published.
