Dr. Sonny Magana is an award-winning teacher, best-selling author, and pioneering educational technology researcher. Painstakingly synthesizing four decades of groundbreaking research into his latest book, Disruptive Classroom Technologies, Dr. Magana introduced the T3 Framework for Innovation to wide international acclaim: “A visionary work; truly insightful and inspirational!” (Robert Marzano, 2017); “A brilliant breakthrough in our understanding and use of technology for learning” (Michael Fullan, 2017); and, “A major step forward; Magana’s T3 Challenge is credible, powerful, and exciting; let’s do it!” (John Hattie, 2018). Dr. Magana’s research methods and findings underpinning the T3 Framework were recently peer-reviewed and inducted into The University of Oxford Research Encyclopedia for Education.

Dr. Magana founded and served as Principal of Washington State’s first CyberSchool in 1996, a groundbreaking blended learning program that continues to meet the needs of at-risk students in Washington. An avid musician, yoga practitioner, climber, and bee keeper, Sonny was awarded the Milken Family Foundation Educator Award and the Washington Governor’s Commendation for Educational Excellence. He holds a bachelor of science degree from Stockton University, a master of education degree from City University, and a doctorate in educational leadership from Seattle University. He has successfully climbed, and descended from, the highest peaks in his home state of Washington.

I love coming to Summer Institute. I really enjoy getting to know the other Athlos schools and learning from them and the home court staff. I like the opportunity to network and see what other Athlos schools are doing.

Having uninterrupted time to meet, seek guidance, listen to others, and come together and bond as a team.

Collaborating with other schools to discuss our services, our strengths, and how we can support each other.
