Michael Horn: A Time for Disruptive Innovation in Education

What’s next? In this uncertain time, the question impacts nearly every aspect of our lives. But as learning has moved out of schools and into homes – off chalkboards and onto Zoom – the question of “what’s next” seems particularly central to our existing approach to education and how kids learn. Few raise these questions – or search more for answers – than Michael Horn. Among other roles, Michael is a senior strategist at Guild Education and is co-founder of and a distinguished fellow at the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation. Michael also serves as an executive editor at Education Next and is the author of Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns, Blended: Using Disruptive Innovation to Improve Schools, and most recently, “Choosing College.” From technology to policy to distance learning, does this moment offer opportunities for transformational change or simply greater risks? Does this disruption offer a unique, generational opportunity to rewrite the existing rules? For more information, go to www.turnaroundusa.org/podcast/
