Now more than ever, we need to ensure that teaching makes pedagogically-sound use of available technology. The Technology Integration Matrix applies equally well to online as it does face-to-face instruction. And don’t forget to use your TIM Tools to support your teachers, pinpoint needs, continue coaching processes, identify those teachers who can assist others, and encourage communication among staff and with parents and community. We’re here to help you!
