technology integration projects in schools through a series of videos.
First read the technology integration matrix available at http://fcit.usf.edu/matrix/matrix.php to understand the range of technology integration stages and different characteristics of learning environments for effective technology integration. Review the videos connected to each of the cells in the matrix (e.g. access and shared access).
With this understanding of different levels of technology integration and characteristics of learning environments, choose one of the following videos and review it using the criteria in the matrix.
The video is
Differentiating Instruction Through Interactive Games (Tech2Learn Series)
Write a reaction paper to the video using the matrix.
• What is your judgment of their level of technology integration? What is your rationale for this judgment?

There are more useful videos and articles about technology integration at http://www.edutopia.org I strongly encourage you to navigate and review more that interest you.
