I located an interesting blog post about technology integration.  It is titled

K-5 iPad Apps for Understanding: Part Two of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.  I especially enjoyed the Motion Math HD app, it meets the needs of the kinesthetic and visual learner.  The apps should maintain the students' motivation by making learning fun.

 Through our class, I found an interesting book titled Classroom Teachers Technology Survival Guide (by D.Johnson), which is a step-by-step introduction to technology in the classroom. Some of the strategies you mentioned are included.
