A cofounder of the Clayton Christensen Institute, Michael Horn leads a research team that educates policymakers and community leaders on the power of disruptive innovation in the K-12 and higher education spheres. His team aims to transform monolithic, factory model education systems into student-centric designs that educate every student successfully and enable each to realize his or her fullest potential. Horn has coauthored several books, including Blended: Using Disruptive Innovation to Improve Schools, a groundbreaking book that serves as a field guide and eye-opener for the builders and influencers of the next generation of K-12 learning environments. Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns, which Horn coauthored, hit 14 on Newsweek’s list of “Fifty Books for Our Times.” Forbes, The Washington Post, The Economist, The Huffington Post, and Education Week have published Horn’s work. Tech&Learning magazine named him to its list of the 100 most important people in the creation and advancement of the use of technology in education. Horn was also selected as a 2014 Eisenhower Fellow to study innovation in education in Vietnam and Korea. He serves on a variety of boards, including Fidelis Education and the Silicon Schools Fund.
