Transforming Instruction in the Secondary Classroom via the TIM Model

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The presenters will introduce the Technology Integration Matrix (TIM Model), which helps educators use technology to achieve higher learning goals with their students. They then will examine lessons and units in the secondary classroom, highlighting concrete ways to move Entry Level activities to Goal-Directed Transformation. Participants will then collaborate to transform an additional entry-level activity, putting into play the techniques and tools they have seen during the session. The presentation will cover several activities and tools--including Breakouts, blogs, and Google My Maps--that teachers can use to move instruction to the upper end of the TIM Model.
