The Tiers of Technology Use in Classrooms

Classroom Tiers Model What is the Classroom Tiers Model?

This model was developed by the Educational Technology Support Center Directors in Washington State in partnership with OSPI.
    The intended outcomes of this model include:

  • To answer the "What should we do with technology in classrooms?" question
  • To provide educators research/effective practice-based answers to technology integration questions
  • To be applicable to all teachers
  • To provide a common terminology for technology planning
  • To fit on one page
  • To focus on teaching and learning rather than products
