"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."
"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."
"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 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."
"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."
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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.
"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."
"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."
"Disruptive Classroom Technologies provides concrete and clearly defined descriptors for each level of the T3 Framework. Compared with existing frameworks, the T3 Framework makes it easier to classify observed classroom examples of technology integration—and I predict it will be more intuitive for teachers to visualize moving to the higher levels of the T3 Framework.
"Educators are struggling to navigate classroom environments that are increasingly disrupted by new and emerging technology. In Disruptive Classroom Technologies, Magana helps to make the ambiguity of the current landscape something to both look forward to, and harness. There is no better or more important time to be a teacher, and any self-reflecting leader or educator will benefit from the intentionality of Magana’s T3 Framework."
"Disruptive Classroom Technologies offers a timely and practical approach to taming the disjointed adoption of technology in schools today. A trademark of Sonny's work is its ability to be applied immediately in schools to shift the paradigm of classroom innovation. This text gives the practitioner an actionable level of understanding through a realistic framework."
"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
"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."
"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."
"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!"
