The TIP Model

The TIP Model has been described by Wiencke and Roblyer (2004) as:

The Technology Integration Planning (TIP) Model was designed to give teachers a systematic way to address the challenges involved in integrating technology into teaching (Roblyer, 2003). By carrying out the steps in each of the model’s five phases, teachers perform a set of planning, implementation, and assessment activities that help assure their technology use will be both efficient and successful in meeting the needs they have identified.

The TIP Model has 2 distinct phases:1. Enhancing – the provision of some form of relative advantage.

2. Changing – the ability to do something new, something not previously possible.

I love this adaption of the model provided to us in the learning path because I can relate to it when I am using the backwards design process. It was created by  Mike Wheadon in his blog post The Technology Integration Planning Model.

Then I noticed that Aspen from My journey- Learning and teaching using ICTs explored the model even more in her post Technology Integration Planning (TIP) Model. During her research she found this site which has another fantastic graph worth remembering and referring to.


It works on the six phases including:

Phase 1: Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK)
Phase 2: Why should I use a technology-based method?
Phase 3: How will I know students have learned?
Phase 4: What teaching strategies and activities will work best?
Phase 5: Are essential conditions in place to support technology integration?
Phase 6: What worked well? What could be improved?
