Christensen, Johnson, and HornDisrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns@BillCampEducation examined through the lens of the "disruptive innovation" concept Christensen has formally written about for business. From a business perspective, some of the most successful innovations (i.e. the personal computer) started out as being considered substandard by those in the field, and therefore, did not get a lot of attention. By the time, the value was accepted more widely, those who could have contributed much in the beginning were to far behind to make a difference. This book looks at how this idea might apply to our current education system.
