Breakthrough Methods for Doubling Learning with EdTech Published in Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Education

Dr. Sonny Magana’s T3 Framework for Innovation in Education hailed as a next-generation pedagogical model for global educational systems.

“The T3 Framework is a brilliant breakthrough in our understanding and use of technology for learning. For those of us working on the frontier of deep learning Disruptive Classroom Technologies, and the T3 Framework is a much needed gift.” – Michael Fullan

Educational technologies have permeated nearly every facet of modern education, yet their impact on student learning and achievement has been frustratingly low.

Pioneering researcher and author, Dr. Sonny Magana compiled four decades of research into the T3 Framework for Innovation, a model that has been shown to reliably double student achievement. The T3 Framework categorizes learning with technology as Translational, Transformational, and Transcendent, helping teachers sort through low-value applications in order to reach innovative, high-impact usage of classroom technologies. His methods and findings were peer-reviewed by global academic scholars and published in the prestigious Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Education.

“It’s not just that students have equitable access to digital tools,” said Dr. Magana, “Although that is a critical first step, enormous achievement gains were observed when learners mindfully wielded these digital tools to become more involved in planning for their learning, contributively expressing and applying their knowledge in authentic contexts, and formatively assessing their own growth and achievement over time.”

Notable global education scholars support Dr. Magana’s findings:

Michael Fullan, Professor Emeritus from the University of Toronto said, “The T3 Framework is a brilliant breakthrough in our understanding and use of technology for learning. For those of us working on the frontier of deep learning Disruptive Classroom Technologies, and the T3 Framework is a much needed gift.”

Professor John Hattie from the University of Melbourne claimed, “Sonny Magana has advanced our understanding of the Visible Learning and used this to advance a major step forward. His T3 Framework aligns beautifully with the Visible Learning claims. The T3 Challenge is powerful, credible, and exciting; Let’s do it!”

“We are at a crucial crossroads in educational history,” Dr. Magana continued, “We can either continue adhering to an outdated 19th Century model, or make a radical course correction towards a next-generation model of pedagogy in this digital age. Our future literally depends upon it.”

Listen to a recent Forbes Insights Futures in Focus podcast, in which futurist, best-selling author and digital transformation guru Michael Gale talks with Dr. Magana about the educational shifts that need occur in order to prepare today’s learners for the future.
