While many in education are attempting to discover where online learning fits within the current educational structure, many recognize this “disruptive innovation” as a vital key to the future of true differentiated learning and individualized instruction.
In a recent article by Michael B. Horn and posted in eSchool News, Horn takes a look at where he believes Online Learning is headed and, more importantly, why.
“Instead of focusing on whether online learning is good or bad, stakeholders should consider the policy structures that shape its outcomes.”
Michael B. Horn is the co-founder and executive director of the education practice of Innosight Institute, a nonprofit think tank devoted to applying the theories of disruptive innovation to problems in the social sector. He is also the author of several publications and articles, including the book Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns.
