Abstract: A five-phased Technology Integration Planning (TIP) Model was designed to help teachers plan for, implement, and assess their use of technology in instruction. Teaching the model requires in-service and pre-service learners to go through each of the phases, addressing issues involved as they create their own lessons and products. To clarify the requirements of each phase – especially for learners who are new to the classroom and/or technology integration – the authors have designed a series of exercises that are based on actual problems and situations that teachers have encountered and that serve as the basis for analysis and discussion. This paper describes the TIP Model, gives examples of the problem-based exercises, and discusses how these tools are applied in in-service and pre-service courses.
