Arizona Technology Integration Matrix     
All lesson plans in the TIM are aligned to the Common Core State Standards!

What is the Arizona Technology Integration Matrix?

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, collaborative, constructive, authentic, and goal directed (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.

What is in each cell?
Within each cell of the Matrix one will find two lessons plans with a short video of the lesson. Each lesson is designed to show the integration of technology in instruction and classrooms as well as the Arizona Educational Technology Standards.

The Arizona Technology Integration Matrix is adapted from the Technology Integration Matrix produced by the Florida Center for Instructional Technology. The Arizona Technology Integration Matrix was produced by the Arizona K12 Center at Northern Arizona University and funded in part through 2010-2011 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds administered by the Arizona Department of Education and the office of the Pima County School Superintendent in response to the ARRA Enhancing Through Technology (EETT–Title IID) Ed Tech Standards Support Project.
