Brief Session Description: The impact of educational technology on achievement remains too low, and understanding why it is so low is critical. Dr. Sonny Magana's pioneering research has advanced our understanding of the "why," and more importantly, how educational systems can accelerate achievement with technology. In this session, award-winning educator and best-selling author Dr. Magana will share the T3 Framework for Innovation from his book, Disruptive Classroom Technologies.
The T3 Framework categories technology use into 3 stages: T1) Translational, T2) Transformational, and T3) Transcendent, providing a more precise, actionable, and measurable framework to guide effective educational innovation. The strategies in the T3 Framework have an observed Effect Size of ES=1.6, which is equivalent to an additional four years of academic achievement in a single year. The T3 Framework for Innovation has been hailed as a major step forward towards enhancing deeper learning and student achievement (Fullan, 2017; Hattie, 2018; Marzano, 2017; Zhao, 2017).
