Course 2: Disruptive Innovation in Education
In today’s digital world, we are witnessing the evolution of an incredibly turbulent new age. It’s the Age of Disruption—an age where every part of society is experiencing a complete upheaval as the result of the pervasive nature of disruptive change. To thrive, our schools, like our businesses, communities, and families, must continually adapt to the changing conditions. By embracing disruptive innovations as opportunities rather than challenges, educators will learn how to proactively use those changes as catalysts to enhance their organization’s learning environments. This course examines the changing nature of our world; identifies the essential modern skills not being addressed by our current educational system; and specifically, identifies how we can effectively engage learners so that they can perform exceptionally well on mandated assessments, while simultaneously learning the critical new basics needed to excel in both school and life beyond school.
