Is K–12 blended learning disruptive? An introduction of the theory of hybrids | Christensen Institute

Is K–12 blended learning disruptive? An introduction of the theory of hybrids | Christensen Institute | Instructional Technology | Scoop.it

"EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

 

The Clayton Christensen Institute, formerly Innosight Institute, has published three papers describing the rise of K−12 blended learning—that is, formal education programs that combine online learning and brick-and-mortar schools. This fourth paper is the first to analyze blended learning through the lens of disruptive innovation theory to help people anticipate and plan for the likely effects of blended learning on the classrooms of today and schools of tomorrow. The paper includes the following sections:

 

* Introduction to sustaining and disruptive innovation - (see below for read more)

* Theory of hybrids - read more

* How to spot a hybrid - read more

* Seeing what's next with blended learning - read more

* Implications for education leaders - read more

 

"Education leaders can foster disruptive innovation in several ways, including by following these five steps:

Create a team within the school that is autonomous from all aspects of the traditional classroom.Focus disruptive blended-learning models initially on areas of nonconsumption.When ready to expand beyond areas of nonconsumption, look for the students with less demanding performance requirements.Commit to protecting the fledgling disruptive project.Push innovation-friendly policy."

What Is A Flipped Classroom? (Updated For 2013) - Edudemic

What Is A Flipped Classroom? (Updated For 2013) - Edudemic | Instructional Technology | Scoop.it

"Flipped learning has been around for awhile. It’s a rethinking of the standard classroom model that puts students in the driver’s seat. With the influx of technology into education, the flipped classroom model has really taken off. In fact, it’s one of the hottest education trends we’ve been monitoring on Edudemic for the past 4 years. We published a useful guide to flipped classrooms many moons ago but were excited to see an updated visual guide to flipped classrooms from the fine folks at We Are Teachers http://bit.ly/15eBlsn . It details the basics of flipping, apps that you should use in a flipped classroom, and more."
