When I finally met Clayton Christensen last year, at the Tribeca Film Festival’s first annual Disruptive Innovation Awards, I was struck by how much he loves the world, and the way his work allows him to move through it, continuously learning and disrupting. Tell the truth. Isn’t that why most of us work in innovation.
In this talk, “Christensen brings clarity to a muddled and chaotic world of education“ according to fellow author Jim Collins Christensen. Think of this as a crash course in the business of learning from the uber disrupter and author of The Innovator’s Dilemma and The Innovator’s Solution.
According to recent studies in neuroscience, the way we learn doesn’t always match up with the way we are taught. If we hope to stay competitive-academically, economically, and technologically-we need to rethink our understanding of intelligence, reevaluate our educational system, and reinvigorate our commitment to learning. In other words, we need to apply the capability of “disruptive innovation” to education.
