Technology Integration Matrix

Reflection:
This matrix helped me realize how many assignment can incorporate digital story. I appreciated that we had to make our own
first to gain the experience of it. When assigning students to create these, it allows them to be creative with still using lessons
learned in class. This tool can be used as an assessment as well while still being fun. Teachers must be creative in their
assignments but the outcome can give students a lot of freedom to be creative. Especially with technology be more prevelent in
the classroom, videos or digital storytelling are something I would use for students to express themselves and show their
learning.
