"Innovation" Exposed
Articles and discussions that expose the shortcomings of disruptive innovation as the sole or principle means for achieving education reform.   “The answer to large-scale reform is not to try to emulate the characteristics of the minority who are getting somewhere under present conditions ... Rather, we must change existing conditions so that it is normal and possible for a majority of people to move forward” (Fullan, 2001)

Reclaiming Innovation

Reclaiming Innovation | "Innovation" Exposed | Scoop.it

"If any concept should be seen as an uncomplicated good thing in higher education, it's innovation. Defined by a common-sense notion of "doing things better" and burnished by the sheen of dazzling technological advances, what's not to like about innovation?

 

Yet as 2014 churns on, the glow is wearing off. Today, innovation is increasingly conflated with hype, disruption for disruption's sake, and outsourcing laced with a dose of austerity-driven downsizing. Call it innovation fatigue."

Can we predict which disruptive innovations will win? No. What should we do then? Here are some ideas from Nassim Taleb, Vinod Khosla, Marc Andreessen and Tren Griffin that give us some guidance.
Enrico Canale's insight:

"This means that if you’re a firm, you need to be using the venture capitalist’s portfolio approach to innovation.  Lots of little bets with big upside will beat trying to predict the future." Isn't that just what Universities do? "Lots of little bets with big upside". Don't bet big on disruptive innovation!

Theft By Led Zeppelin And Apple? No, Just Innovation | "Innovation" Exposed | Scoop.it
The issue of intellectual property and intellectual theft—whether in music or technology—can’t be understood outside the context of dollar signs. When millions aren’t at issue, most people are willing to admit that ideas get lifted and refined constantly. But once the stakes get high enough, everyone becomes a jealous litigator, claiming to have been the first person to copyright fire or the wheel. This hampers innovation.
