Abstract: While technology is commonplace in many classrooms, technology use is often centered on the teacher. Many teachers use interactive boards, document cameras, and other tools to present lessons to students. The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) provides a framework to help teachers conceptualize effective integration. Following the story of a teacher struggling with technology, the authors provide tips and an outline to soundly scaffold the integration. This article explains the essential characteristics and levels that comprise the TIM. Using the TIM as a guide, a teacher learns how to untangle her lesson and provide engaging student-centered, literacy-based technology activities.
