Summary: This article talks about the 4 stages of integrating technology into learning, and how to best design learning experiences too take advantage of the available technology.
Evaluation/Opinion: I like how this article moves through and explores the 4 stages of technology integration, but also stresses that these are not a linear framework to take students through each school year. Rather, Heick stresses that teachers should evaluate the proficiency of their students and the level of technological integration that the learning experience calls for. The goal is to leverage the technology and the users abilities into a self directed learning experiences. The article also interprets the main points in an infographic, which I really appreciate as a visual learner.
