As this critical level of the taxonomy, technology integration provides for “teaching with technology.” In the previous chapter, infused technologies centered on learning. At level 5.0, the focus is on “creating new technology-based materials by combining various technologies to teach.” Within an effective educational setting, technology becomes an enabling tool for teaching and takes many forms at this level of the taxonomy. A prime function of integrated technologies is to provide learners with knowledge of specific subject areas. Traditionally, students learn from technologies used as delivery tools to communicate messages just as they learn from teachers. But at this level of the taxonomy, learners will create “new technology-based materials, combining otherwise disparate technologies to teach.”
