After observing teachers and students interact with technology over many years, Liz Kolb began to wonder: How do we move students from a high-attention, low-commitment to learning with digital devices to a high-attention, high-commitment to learning tasks? Her extensive research into this question led to the development of the Triple E Framework (covered in the 2017 ISTE book Learning First, Technology Second), in which the learning goal — not the tool — is the most important element of a given lesson.
Understanding how students learn is built into the Triple E Framework, allowing teachers to choose the tool and pedagogical strategies that best fit the learning goal. Ultimately, the Triple E Framework is meant to support the teacher in making choices with technology and instructional strategies based on the learning goal and the science of learning.

This book:

• Provides an overview of the popular and highly regarded Triple E Framework.
• Provides a compelling lens through which to understand and apply the research and strategies tied to the framework using a myth vs. reality format.
• Features a suggested step-by-step process for instructional designers and tech coaches to use the framework with classroom teachers for better lesson design.
• Discusses how two schools have systematically integrated the Triple E Framework across their district. 
•Ties effective teaching strategies directly to the ISTE Standards for Students and the ISTE Standards for Educators.

For Learning First, Technology Second readers, this book will build on their knowledge, providing a brief overview as well as new research, scenarios, cases and ideas for using technology in education. For readers new to the framework, this book will provide all of the essential research and tools mentioned above, along with an overview of the framework, so they can apply what they learn without missing a beat.
