I’ll be returning to my home state of Washington for the Northwest Council for Computers in Education Conference on Wednesday, February 27, 2019 from 2:15 – 3:05 in room Tahoma 3 at the Seattle Convention Center in Seattle, WA. I’ll be presenting with the wonderful Dr. Geri Gillespy! Here is the presentation 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, howeducational systems can accelerate student achievement using digital tools. In this interactive workshop, award-winning educator and best-selling author Dr. Sonny Magana, and Dr. Geri Gillespy, Administrator of Digital Integration at West Ada School District, will share the T3 Framework for Innovation from Dr. Magana’s best-selling book, Disruptive Classroom Technologies.

The West Ada School District has adopted the T3 Framework to reliably enhance the impact of educational technologies by contextualizing their use into 3 distinct stages: T1) Translational, T2) Transformational, and T3) Transcendent. The T3 Framework is designed to provide educators and leaders with a more precise, actionable, and measurable framework to guide effective educational innovation, not just simple digitization. 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 and has been hailed as a major step forward in efforts towards enhancing deeper learning and accelerating student achievement (Fullan, 2017; Hattie, 2018; Marzano, 2017; Zhao, 2017).
