Are you in love with T.I.M.?

T.I.M. is 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.

Status Update of Technology Tuesday's

Whoo Hoo! Shout-out to the hardest working staff in the district. Great job for increasing the online intervention use in your classes. Our usage has increased, in some classes we are even at 100%. That makes the difference for many of our students that require different learning styles and repetition. However, we do have some work to do to make sure we are reaching ALL of our students. I want to make sure I am reiterating the expectations that was discussed in November. For the months of December-March we agreed that Tech Tuesday would focus on the online interventions, such as ; Think Through Math, Khan Academy, Istation, MyOn, Accelerated Reader, and STEMscopes. On Tech Tuesday classroom teachers would run reports and discuss with students their progress, while others used the computers in class and all BYOD devices to make sure this was they are using the programs. In PLC’s everyone should have met with Dr. Burroughs to discuss the importance and with your teams to lay out plans and share tips to make this expectation feasible. Specialist advocated to allot Tech Tuesday the designated day so teachers would not be overwhelmed with another demand with no additional time provided. Teachers please make sure all students are utilizing these programs. I am including a few tips shared with me by other teachers to make this a seamless reality in your classrooms.

· Create charts assigning designated days for those students you know don’t have devices cycling them through your classroom computers Monday – Thursday.

· Schedule meetings with your “high priority” students to discuss their progress.

· Set goals for progress and usage.

· Give incentives and ask your supervisor to support your incentives.

· Khan Academy has YouTube Videos. Make sure the teacher may have to log in but, at your discretion. *I would mainly show student how to use the resource and only when I can monitor them closely.

· Use all the computers in your classroom, even the one the teacher is using. (In Alief there is no designated teacher computer, only student computers.)

If you have other ideas or need help, please feel free to ask. If there is a student that needs to be removed from Think Through Math, just email me.
