Michael Horn speaks and writes about the future of education and works with a portfolio of education organizations to improve the life of each and every student. He serves as the Chief Strategy Officer for Entangled Ventures, an education technology studio, and as a principal consultant for Entangled Solutions, which offers innovation services to higher education institutions. He is also the co-founder of and a distinguished fellow at the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, a non-profit think tank.
What does it take to lead schools and education systems to help all students develop the competencies they will need in the 21st century?
Using the theories of disruptive innovation, Michael Horn paints a vision for the transformation and future of education. As one example, online learning has the potential to create a student-centered education system that effectively educates all students by personalizing learning.
Horn discusses not only how this plays out—in the U.S. and abroad from Korea to Vietnam and Brazil—but also what educators, policymakers, and others must do to ensure this disruptive innovation realizes its promise. He also dissects the successes of countries already doing this well, what lessons we should (or should not) draw, and what the implications may be if we do.
