T³ Worldwide

The T³™ – Teachers Teaching with Technology™ – organization began in North America over 25 years ago and has provided professional development to tens of thousands of teachers since its inception. As the expectations for mathematics and science education have evolved, Texas Instruments has encouraged and supported the creation and growth of the T³ organization to ensure the wide availability of professional development that addresses student achievement through the appropriate use of technology.

Today, several countries around the world have their own T³™ organizations, affiliated with the North American T³™ community. These organizations provide professional development customized to the needs of their educators, locations and educational systems.

T³: Leaders in Professional Learning

Use technology appropriately.

T³™ is made up of some of the most creative and innovative mathematics and science teachers in the world. They are experienced classroom educators, authors, and coaches who have worked with teachers and students from elementary grades through pre-service teachers.  They are advocates for leveraging effective classroom practices and the appropriate use of technology to enhance student achievement.

The T³™ instructor ranks are made up of classroom teachers and university professors, who can speak from current experiences, based on technology, education trends, pedagogical practices, and student expectations in the classroom today. Experienced teachers bring knowledge, skills, and understanding of what works in a classroom.

Starting with only 12 instructors in the 1980s, T³™ has grown to include over 300 instructors in North America and many more around the world. T³™ continues to seek qualified applicants with a desire to provide professional development to their colleagues in mathematics and science education.

To become a T³™ Instructor, an educator must have demonstrated excellence in classroom teaching, professional development, technology usage, and understanding of exemplary pedagogical usage of technology in the mathematics and science classroom. In addition, prospective T³™ Instructors must attend Teacher Leader Training from the T³™ organization and be evaluated by current leading T³™ Instructors.
