"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, 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
“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."
"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."
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."
"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."
"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."
"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!"
"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."
"If there is one book all educational leaders read, make it this one. Creating learning environments that promote and foster innovation in both teaching and learning are essential today. Education is ripe for disruption and Sonny has provided a clear framework for helping students and teachers to do more. The T3 Framework can provide guidance to all educational leaders and create the learning students need and deserve."
"Sonny Magana carefully analyses innovation in education and adoption of technology through his T3 lens providing practical tools and examples to assist us all. He draws on colorful, helpful examples from music to the fall of the iron curtain to illustrate his ideas and to highlight pathways from translational through transformational and ultimately to transcendent technology use.
"In Disruptive Classroom Technologies, Sonny Magana brilliantly defines the T3 Framework which serves as a “call to action” for all education leaders to examine the role that technology has in teaching and learning. As Sonny details, schools are technology rich and innovation poor due to a constant pursuit of the latest glitzy technology fad that often has limited additive value to student achievement.
"What if...What if there were a framework to make tangible in a very articulate, strategic, and actionable way what we have long sought to implement: the student use of technologies to inspire learning that matters? Dr. Magana has done it! Disruptive Classroom Technologies validates your experience and then effortlessly and exponentially moves you along the T3 continuum to transcendent impact from the use of educational technology. A must read for educational leaders at all levels.
"As schools and other institutions of learning struggle to keep pace with the evolving demands and challenges of educating, “today’s learners for tomorrow’s future,” questions persist about the investment and value technology brings to the work of teaching and learning.
"Disruptive Classroom Technologies is a model for how to effectively implement technology in a school. Dr. Magana’s writing and practice demonstrate his unique combination of having a deep understanding of effective pedagogical practice and cutting edge knowledge about technology. The T3 framework that Dr. Magana developed blends learning and technology together in an applicable and effective manner.
"Emerging economies are making huge investments in ICT aimed at improving student learning outcomes. However, these investments are not paying off for lack of a coherent road map that leads to substantive student learning. Sonny’s T3 framework is the much-needed innovation that can change this situation.
"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.
"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.
