Examples of disruptive innovation in education
Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns by Clayton M. ChristensenSelected as one of the Best Books on Innovation, 2008 by BusinessWeek magazine
Named the Best Human-Capital Book of 2008 by Strategy + Business magazine
A crash course in the business of learning-from the bestselling author of The Innovators Dilemma and The Innovators Solution...
Provocatively titled, Disrupting Class is just what Americas K-12 education system needs--a well thought-through proposal for using technology to better serve students and bring our schools into the 21st Century. Unlike so many education reforms, this is not small-bore stuff. For that reason alone, its likely to be resisted by defenders of the status quo, even though its necessary and right for our kids.
We owe it to them to make sure this book isnt merely a terrific read; it must become a blueprint for educational transformation.
--Joel Klein, Chancellor of the New York City Department of Education
A brilliant teacher, Christensen brings clarity to a muddled and chaotic world of education.
--Jim Collins, bestselling author of Good to Great
According to recent studies in neuroscience, the way we learn doesnt always match up with the way we are taught. If we hope to stay competitive-academically, economically, and technologically-we need to rethink our understanding of intelligence, reevaluate our educational system, and reinvigorate our commitment to learning. In other words, we need disruptive innovation.
Now, in his long-awaited new book, Clayton M. Christensen and coauthors Michael B. Horn and Curtis W. Johnson take one of the most important issues of our time-education-and apply Christensens now-famous theories of disruptive change using a wide range of real-life examples. Whether youre a school administrator, government official, business leader, parent, teacher, or entrepreneur, youll discover surprising new ideas, outside-the-box strategies, and straight-A success stories.
Youll learn how Customized learning will help many more students succeed in school Student-centric classrooms will increase the demand for new technology Computers must be disruptively deployed to every student Disruptive innovation can circumvent roadblocks that have prevented other attempts at school reform We can compete in the global classroom-and get ahead in the global market
Filled with fascinating case studies, scientific findings, and unprecedented insights on how innovation must be managed, Disrupting Class will open your eyes to new possibilities, unlock hidden potential, and get you to think differently. Professor Christensen and his coauthors provide a bold new lesson in innovation that will help you make the grade for years to come.
The future is now. Class is in session.
How Disruptive Innovation Can Transform Education
Disruptive Technologies in Education Sector
By: Thomas Arnett. There is a common tendency at this time of year to reflect and refocus on what matters most and then use that renewed focus to chart into the year ahead. In that spirit of reflection, I want to share some thoughts on why the theory of disruptive innovation, which guides our work here at the Clayton Christensen Institute, is so important to education. If you are not familiar with the theory of disruptive innovation, a brief explanation is available here on our website. My purpose here is not to explain the theory, but rather, explain in brief why that theory should matter to people who want to improve our education system. First, disruptive innovation is the catalyst for bringing about more equitable access to high-quality education. As a result, there is an achievement gap between students who grow up in middle- and upper-class neighborhoods and students who grow up in low-income areas.

Modern disruptive technologies have changed almost every aspect of our everyday lives. Education is not an exception to this rule. At the time, more widely available technologies such as web-based video chats are widely adopted, and we can assess their influence. Probably, the first thing that comes to mind when we consider how disruptive technologies changes education is the capabilities of online learning. This disruptive technology has already transformed the way of how educational organizations provide their services. Online learning offers new opportunities both for students and educators.
Digital technology disrupted our everyday lives and now it's coming for Higher Education. The most promising innovations aren't mainstream yet. But they will revolutionize the very fabric of learning. They will not only change education contents and the student experience. They will also influence student attraction and student retention. Things are about to get very interesting. These are four disruptive digital technologies poised to disrupt higher learning.
