Bloom's taxonomy on a matrix rubric
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.

Web-based learning, the use of Web-based resources for learning, is becoming more common in educational institutions. However, many Web-based courses do little more than reaffirm traditional teaching approaches of presentation and assessment, resulting in closed learning environments. Current trends in education are stressing the need for more learning that encourages critical thinking and problem solving, collaboration and communication, global awareness and information literacy. Therefore, there is a need to make Web-based learning more open. Integrating new Web 2.0 tools and technology into the learning process is one way to do this. This integration needs to be done carefully, using the new tools to enhance traditional methods of instruction, moving Web-based learning from learning islands to learning environments in the process.

One of the major themes running through the 16th AILA Congress was the relationship of new technologies to language teaching. Over the course of six days, presenters from around the world discussed changing teacher training, changing teaching, and changing language – especially the growing importance of digital literacies.

This facebook page is like a crowdsourced blog on educational technology. All it needs is an RSS feed. Actually it's not crowdsourced, just crowd commented. All the posts are by FT4Teachers. Still excellent resource, but seems hard to reach old posts as opposed to a blog. Still for the FB crowd, reaches teachers where they hang out.
Hang on, further exploration, there IS a blog, project of Richard Byrne, http://www.freetech4teachers.com ... so that blog perhaps updates this Facebook page? hmmm (so much to learn; the blog and page go well together, though comments are now distributed ... )
