Blended: Using Disruptive Innovation to Improve Schools
Michael B. Horn (MBA 2006), Chief Strategy Officer, Entangled Ventures; Cofounder and Distinguished Fellow, Clayton Christensen Institute
Heather Staker (MBA 2001), CEO and Founder, Ready to Blend, LLC; Adjunct Research Fellow for the Clayton Christensen Institute
In this webinar, Michael B. Horn and Heather Staker will discuss the themes from their Amazon-bestselling book, Blended. Using the theories of disruptive innovation, Horn and Staker reveal a practical guide for designing an education system that can help all students succeed at scale. The key is to harness the power of technology to allow educators to personalize and create deeper relationships and deeper learning experiences. Critical to realizing this dream is to reimagine school, from how we grade students to how we use time, to unleash opportunities for students to discover their passions in an ever-more complicated world.
