SUMMARY

WARNING: THIS BOOK WILL CHALLENGE EVERYTHING YOU EVER LEARNED-ABOUT LEARNING "After a barrage of business books that purport to 'fix' American education, at last a book that speaks thoughtfully and imaginatively about what genuinely individualized education can be like and how to bring it about." -Howard Gardner, author ofFive Minds for the Future "A decade ago, Clayton Christensen wrote a masterpiece,The Innovator's Dilemma, that transformed the way business looks at innovation. Now, he and two collaborators, Michael B. Horn and Curtis W. Johnson, have come up with another, focusing his groundbreaking theories of disruptive innovation on education." -David Gergen, US Presidential Advisor "Clayton Christensen's insights just might shake many of us in education out of our complacency and into a long neededdisruptivediscourse about really fixing our schools. This will be a welcome change after decades in which powerful calls to action have resulted in only marginal improvements for our nation's school children." -Vicki Phillips, director of Education, Gates Foundation "Full of strategies that are both bold and doable, this brilliant and seminal book shows how we can utilize technology to customize learning. I recommend it most enthusiastically." -Adam Urbanski, president of the Rochester (NY) Teachers Association, and vice president of the American Federation of Teachers "Finally we have a book from the business community that gets it.Disrupting Classfrom Clayton Christensen and colleagues points out that motivation is central to learning and that if schools and learning are to be transformed as they must be, motivation must be at the center of the work. They also point out how technology should be used to personalize learning and what the future might look like for schools. A must read for anyone thinking and worrying about where education should be headed." -Paul Houston, Executive Director, American Association of School Administrators "Powerful, proven strategies for moving education from stagnation to evolution." -Christopher Dede, Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies, Harvard Graduate School of Education "Clayton Christensen and colleagues describe how disruptive technologies will personalize and, as a result, revolutionize learning. Every education leader should read this book, set aside their next staff meeting to discuss it, and figure out how they can be part of the improvement wave to come." -Tom Vander Ark, President, X PRIZE Foundation "InDisrupting Class, Christensen, Horn and Johnson argue that the next round of innovation in school reform will involve learning software. While schools have resisted integrating technology for instruction, today's students are embracing technology in their everyday lives. This book offers promise to education reformers." -Kathleen McCartney, Dean, Harvard Graduate School of EducationChristensen, Clayton M. is the author of 'Disrupting Class', published 2008 under ISBN 9780071592062 and ISBN 0071592067.
