“I'm grateful to S3 for directly contributing to our success over the last few years. The reliable and consistent support with our technology integration has been mission critical.”

Principal, St. Michael School

Proven technology integration strategies

At S3 Technologies, we believe technology is a tool educators can use to create a learning environment with increased student ownership, focus on content, concept, and higher order thinking. As a result, students will be more likely to integrate knowledge gained into their existing schema, making learning more meaningful and long-lasting. Technology use increases student engagement and facilitates educators' ability to differentiate. This allows educators to be more flexible with interruptions, student absences, or adjustments to mode of instruction (remote, hybrid, in-person, or HyFlex).

Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) model

S3 Technologies is currently the only provider in Ohio licensed to offer TIM Tools as a component of our consulting services.
S3 utilizes the Technology Integration Matrix (TIM), developed by the Florida Center for Instructional Technology, to help educators intentionally and strategically use technology to enhance and propel student learning.

Visit https://fcit.usf.edu/matrix/matrix/ to find out more about the TIM.

S3 uses the TIM Model on a variety of levels including identifying professional development needs, providing coaching to instructors, and evaluating data and trends in technology use. For a better idea of how we use the TIM and TUPS data, please see the video and article below.
