In this episode, Dr. Sonny Magana, a pioneer in educational technology research, shares insights from his book, Disruptive Classroom Technologies: A Framework for Innovation in Education, that features his T3 Framework for Innovation that includes a hierarchy of three domains (Translational, Transformational and Transcendent) that serve as a highly reliable model for enhancing modern instructional practice.

Instead, Dr. Magana cites evidence that students today need trained teachers that understand the process of learning to help kids solve "wicked problems" and shift the narrative about real learning outcomes in the classroom.

Richardson asserts that schools are not built for learning and that we forget most of the things we learn in school because the system is based on memorization and retention for the sole purpose of passing tests and getting letter grades. Instead, learning should be built around passion, interest, relevance and actual purpose as we redefine essential skills for the future of work.
