Disrupting class : how disruptive innovation will change the way the world learns by Clayton M Christensen( Book )

38 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to recent studies in neuroscience, the way we learn doesn't 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 Christensen's now-famous theories of "disruptive" change using a wide range of real-life examples. Whether you're a school administrator, government official, business leader, parent, teacher, or entrepreneur, you'll discover surprising new ideas, outside-the-box strategies, and straight-A success stories. You'll 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.--From publisher description
Private enterprise and public education by Frederick M Hess( Book )

"The growth of for-profit providers in the K-16 education sector has generated more than its fair share of controversy. From the emergence of charter schools to postsecondary options such as the University of Phoenix, for-profit providers have been lauded for their capacity to serve historically underserved populations but derided for their pursuit of profit?which, critics argue, happens at the expense of the public good."
Blended : using disruptive innovation to improve schools by Michael B Horn( Book )

20 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educators, parents, and students are approaching the tipping point in a digital transformation that will forever change the way the world learns. If online learning has not already rocked your local school, then it will soon. Michael Horn and his" Disrupting Class" collaborators made that prediction in 2008 when they calculated that by 2019, 50% of high school courses would be online in some form or fashion. Years later, that prediction continues to appear accurate, if not conservative. People may debate the timing, but the more important question is how to channel the indisputable emergence of online learning across elementary, middle, and high schools into a positive force that makes life better for students and their teachers. How can leaders unlock the benefits of online learning and mitigate the risks? Five years after the first publication of "Disrupting Class," the field is ready for a companion guide that provides the "how to" guidance for which educators are clamoring. This book will help leaders, teachers, and other stakeholders interested in a more student-centered system understand how to begin. It provides a step-by-step framework, responsive to the frequently asked questions from education leaders who are trying to implement blended learning. The goal is for every reader to have the necessary expertise to go forth with confidence and build the next generation of K-12 learning environments

Disrupting college : How disruptive innovation can deliver quality and affordability to postsecondary education by Clayton M Christensen( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report has not sought to study higher education to reach conclusions about higher education. Rather, it has been to treat the industry's challenges, at their core, as problems of managing innovation effectively. The authors therefore examine the industry through the lenses of the theories that have emerged from research on innovation. Higher education has seen incredible cost inflation in recent years, which is reflected in the 10 percent annual rate of inflation of tuition in nominal terms. This is the perfectly natural result of head-on competition in the plane of sustaining innovation. Disruption hasn't historically been possible in higher education because there hasn't been an upwardly scalable technology driver available. Yet online learning changes this. Disruption is usually underway when the leading companies in an industry are in financial crisis, even while entrants at the "low end" of the industry are growing rapidly and profitably. This is currently underway in higher education. This report is meant to give policymakers as well as the administrators and trustees of traditional universities a language and a way of framing the problem so that they can formulate and implement viable strategies for staying strong in the future. (Contains 11 figures, 4 tables, and 54 endnotes.)
Beyond Good and Evil: Understanding the Role of for-Profits in EducationThrough the Theories of Disruptive Innovation. Private Enterprise inAmerican Education. Special Report 1 by Michael B Horn( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For decades, for-profit educational provision has been tolerated, often grudgingly. In the world of charter schooling, for-profit providers are lambasted and sometimes prohibited. In higher education, for-profit institutions have grown rapidly, enrolling millions of nontraditional students and earning enmity, suspicion, and now investigative and regulatory actions in Washington. When it comes to student lending, teacher quality, and school turnarounds, there is a profound preference for nonprofit or public alternatives. All of this is too familiar to be remarkable. In this paper, the author explains why policymakers and reformers who castigate for-profits or nonprofits as inherently bad or good are mistaken. It is not about whether for-profits are "bad" or "good," he cautions, but about what for-profits are and are not given incentives to do regarding consumer satisfaction, embedded regulatory structures, and shareholder demands. As he argues, "Government should not discriminate between for-profits and nonprofits as a matter of blanket policy. Instead, it should ask if the company with which it is contracting, for-profit or nonprofit, is delivering on what society is paying it to do, as determined by both the spirit and letter of the law. And policymakers more broadly should be asking if the law is asking these organizations to do the right thing." (Contains 3 figures and 20 notes.)
Classifying K-12 Blended Learning by Heather Staker( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The growth of online learning in the k-12 sector is occurring both remotely through virtual schools and on campuses through blended learning. In emerging fields, definitions are important because they create a shared language that enables people to talk about the new phenomena. The blended-learning taxonomy and definitions presented in this paper expand upon and refine the authors' previous work in helping to create a shared language for the k-12 blended-learning sector. In their report titled, "The rise of k-12 blended learning," the authors observed that there were six main blended-learning models emerging in the sector from the perspective of the student. This paper introduces a number of changes to that taxonomy based on feedback from the field and the need to update the research to keep pace with new innovations that are occurring in blended learning. Most importantly, the paper eliminates two of the six blended-learning models--Face-to-Face Driver and Online Lab--because they appear to duplicate other models and make the categorization scheme too rigid to accommodate the diversity of blended-learning models in practice. By moving from six to four overarching models, they have created more breathing room in the definitions. They hope these new models will better describe the majority of programs so that nearly all blended-learning programs will fit comfortably within one of the four. Notes about how this taxonomy differs from the taxonomy in "The rise of k-12 blended learning," January 2011 are appended. (Contains 12 figures and 16 notes.)
Moving from Inputs to Outputs to Outcomes: The Future ofEducation Policy by Michael B Horn( Book )

Over the previous two years, Innosight Institute has published a series of case studies about the fast-growing field of online learning in k-12 education. One aim of this effort was to identify policies that had either positive or negative ramifications for students. This policy brief, sponsored by the Joyce Foundation, summarizes some of that thinking and research and builds upon Digital Learning Now's 10 elements of high-quality digital learning, to which Innosight Institute contributed. Although this policy brief discusses a few of the policy issues on which the case studies have shed some light, it is not a comprehensive list of policy recommendations for online learning. (Contains 31 notes.)
