Whether you teach English language learners or adult secondary education learners, you need to think about ways to integrate technology into the lesson. There are many technology integration matrixes, such as SAMR, TPACK and The Technology Integration Matrix from the Florida Center for Instructional Technology. However, all of them have in common the fact that integration is more than substitution of one technology for another. I have developed a lesson as a model of this type of integration. It creates an online model using Google Docs, Google Forms, and Thinglink along with audio and video. I hope that this model is something that other teachers can build on to make their own highly integrated lessons.

Last July I met Ulla Engeström, CEO and co-founder of ThingLink, at a conference in Portugal. I had the best introduction to ThingLink possible! As co-founder of Ourboox, a simple platform for creating and sharing interactive digital picture books, the first thing that crossed my mind was, well, crossing platforms. In other words, was it possible to embed a ThingLink scene in one of our e-books? On the spot, we began to create an e-book together on the Ourboox platform.
