Why do we use the Triple E Framework?

OTAN has adopted the Triple E Framework, developed by Dr. Liz Kolb in 2011. Its focus is on learning first and technology as a means to support instruction. “Triple E” refers to what students do with technology rather than what the instructor does. The three E’s are Engagement, Enhancement, and Extension (Kolb, 2017). Triple E is easy to use, focuses on increased student success and has a teacher friendly rubric.
