Teaching for Tomorrow: Disrupting Class to Reinvent Education
Each student has different learning needs at different times, yet most teachers are forced to teach to the average of the classroom because today’s education system is not designed to serve all students. A new way is emerging that seizes the power of disruptive innovation to rethink teaching and learning and be able to personalize to serve all students. That power is now within the grasp of all teachers - and Michael Horn will outline how you can start to seize it.
