"Technology is a very real and prevalent part of today’s society, and as educators who are preparing students to become successful in this society it is essential that we use it to enhance student learning in an effective and meaningful way. Disruptive Classroom Technologies provides a framework for how to obtain that technological knowledge."
"In Disruptive Classroom Technologies, Dr. Sonny Magana introduces the T3 Framework, a tool was simple enough for our students and staff to understand and begin to use immediately. Our staff and students found the T3 Framework easy to grasp, yet once fully implemented, it will effectively transform the discussion on technology integration and how to significantly utilize education’s investment in technology to enhance teaching and learning.
"In Disruptive Classroom Technologies, Magana captures precisely the transformational nature of the iEARN global network’s peer-to-peer interaction and authentic learning, pointing out that this transformation takes place in educators as well as students as both learn with the world instead of just about it. Sonny accurately, and to my knowledge uniquely, describes this classroom approach as a start-up entrepreneurial endeavor where the teacher becomes the “learning manager” in a setting in which students make meaningf
"Sustainable innovation in education is not about designing something new and flashy. Authentic innovation that positively transforms student learning and success only comes from the development of relationships among students and teachers. Dr. Magana’s work is vital because it is a call to design learning environments that support teachers while also engaging students in challenging curriculum and activities.
“Dr. Sonny Magana’s T3 framework for innovation in education offers a useful tool for educators globally to embrace the disruptive technologies that abound today. Templates of questions for considering the T3 framework in the context of rapid technological changes allow educators to engage learners at ever deeper and more meaningful levels. Dr. Magana’s great manual for using existing classroom technologies for engaging learners and learning communities in a transcendent manner has the clear and cogent potential for changing our educational world for the better."
"This book is essential reading for school leaders at every level. This excellent book gives school leaders authoritative guidance about what the future could look like in their schools. What I like about this book is that it gives a structure for personal and vicarious learning about the real matter of school leadership, so that these accumulated experiences and wisdom are not lost at either the personal or collegial levels."
"A must read for educational leaders faced with a ‘technology rich but innovative poor’ school, Disruptive Classroom Technologies reframes how educators and students use digital tools in the pursuit of transcendent learning. Equipped with the easy-to-understand T3 Framework, teachers can quickly assess where their own, and their student’s use of technology resides; at the translational, transformational and transcendent level.
"Developing students who are active, informed, and capable of taking action in the real world is at the heart of Disruptive Classroom Technologies. Sonny has shared a new research- and evidence-based framework to guide our thinking about innovation in education, aptly identifying students’ “passion and purpose” as the key drivers for school improvement. This book should challenge leaders and teachers alike to review expectations around how and why they lever digital tools in contemporary learning design."
"Sonny Magana has made a significant contribution to innovation in education with his important book, Disruptive Classroom Technologies, and the T3 Framework. There have been 161 meta-analyses on various aspects of computers in education – from 10,226 studies, and the average effect is d =.34 – and this effect has not changed over the past 50 years despite phenomenal changes in the technology. A major reason for this lack of impact is most technological interventions do not change the dominant “tell and practice” teaching model.
I can highly recommend “Disruptive Classroom Technologies” to any educator (teacher or leader) who is interested in ensuring that they implement the use of technologies in their school/classroom in the best possible way. If you’re not content with the status quo and you want to improve the way technologies are used in your setting, this book is for you. Dr. Sonny Magana has outlined a simple three stage ‘T3 Framework’ to assist educators to innovate in their own schools, to reflect on where they currently stand, and to give direction for where they could be going.
"As districts struggle to truly embed technology into the daily classroom learning, it is becoming clear that a new set of language and ideas are needed to move this work forward. This book provides readers with a fresh framework that can build institutional capacity and deeper integration of education technology."
"A Terrific book! Anyone who can draw upon the Beatles, the Soviet Union and Eddie Van Halen to illustrate technology in education, as Dr. Sonny Magana does in Disruptive Classroom Technologies, clearly has it going on!
· Leaders: Keep this book by your side for inspiration, insight and ideas for leading innovative classroom practice.
"The T3 Framework provides a measurable, hierarchical model for guiding technology usage in the classroom. It provides educators with a way to inspect their current practices and establish a clear path to purposeful technology use in order to engage their students. The true power of T3 is the operationalizing of theory for direct application to the classroom setting. Disruptive Classroom Technologies will resonate with any educator who wants to maximize the impact of technology on instruction."
"Sonny Magana’s T3 Framework will provide schools and districts with the planning tools needed to go beyond the “$1,000 pencil”. His concept of technology as a disruptive force is exactly how we should be thinking about this historic moment of redesigning the culture of learning. Sonny’s book is filled with powerful stories and thoughtful questions that will inspire and empower educators to improve learning. Moreover, he has provided us with a framework for implementation with detail that simply has not existed with earlier models.
"The T3 Framework is a brilliant breakthrough in our understanding and use of technology for learning. Sonny Magana clearly portrays the nature and difference between translational, transformational, and transcendent use of technology. The identification of transcendent use is itself an innovation. On top of all this he shows us how to navigate through the T3 system with guiding questions, prompts, and rubrics. For those of us working on the frontier of deep learning Disruptive Classroom Technologies, and the T3 framework is a much needed gift."
"This is the book that can disrupt the future trajectory of education. Disruptive Classroom Technologies is the book that could help education evolve into a proper digital age system that will empower students to be in control of their own future, no matter what that may hold."
"With the plethora of technology tools to choose from, busy teachers and administrators are at a loss when deciding which tools will help improve learning. Sonny Magana’s T3 Framework is a timely solution to this problem. The self-evaluative matrices, questionnaires and framing tools make the task of transforming one’s teaching achievable. Disruptive Classroom Technologies will take a place of honor on my bookshelf, right next to Friedman and Bonk!"
"Change isn't coming...it's already on our doorstep. The disruptive nature of technology compels all educators to critically evaluate integration in support of improved learning outcomes. The T3 Framework developed by Sonny Magana provides a much needed tool for all educators to harness the positive aspects of disruptive technologies to support learning."
"Fresh, innovative, and revolutionary, Magana's T3 Framework promises to challenge the status quo and invite disruptive practices in educational technology. Enhancing social entrepreneurship with technology, as the final stage of Magana’s framework for technology use in education, is a powerful proposal and a compelling vision worth pursuing by all educators."
"Dr. Magana gets to the heart of how to create transcendent learning environments, clearly demonstrating the role technology can play in driving social entrepreneurship and change. This book is different than most: Sonny has artfully captured the importance of technology in the larger context of transcending traditional learning, using technology to better engage learners, solve difficult problems, and improve results."
