One of the questions you might be asking yourself as a teacher using technology in his/her classroom is whether you are using it the right way or not. First , questions such as these are healthy signs of your ongoing learning and the more you question  your learning and teaching practices  the more improved your overall teaching becomes. This is an important part of the reflexive process we need to engage in as teachers.

To help you better informed decisions about your technology practices in your teaching. We are sharing with you this wonderful Technology Integration Matrix created by Arizona K-12.

According to the Arizona K-12 Center at Northern Arizona University  :
"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."
