Modern students are capable of wielding digital tools to accelerate the realization of their limitless learning potential and make significant contributions to the larger global community. Yet this vision for disruptive innovation in education has been on the distant horizon, unclear, unmeasurable, and as yet unattained.

In this Webinar, educational futurist Dr. Sonny Magana will share his T3 Framework for innovation in education from his new book Disruptive Classroom Technologies. The T3 Framework organizes educational technology use into three hierarchically ordered domains: translational, transformational, and transcendent. The strategies in the T3 Framework have an observed effect size of 1.6, or the equivalent of three of more years of achievement in a single academic year.
