Al-Khalifa Business School is focused on E-Learning on technology disrupting, Disruptive Innovation. Disrupting Class – Customizing Learning — Creating Change For a revolution to take place in education, changes will have to occur that will disrupt the status quo.
According to Clayton Christensen, Michael Horn and Curtis Johnson writers of Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns, the key to revolutionizing the classroom is not just by adding technology, but rather by the ways that technology will be introduced.
They believe that future schools must be student-centric. Because students have different types of intelligence, they do not all learn the same way.
To serve all students effectively, learning should be both personalized and customized. Under the current system, customizing education is expensive.
Disrupting Class recommends introducing more computer-based learning disruptively.
“We need to introduce the innovation disruptively–not by using it to compete against the existing paradigm and serve existing customers, but to target those who are not being served — people we call non-consumers. That way, all the new approach has to do is be better than the alternative — which is nothing at all. ” (Christensen, Horn, Eutopia 2008).
How to disrupt
- Change the way you deliver instruction:
First and foremost, students need more effective ways to learn. It’s clear to anyone paying attention that personalized learning is what they want and soon will expect. Everyone learns differently. Higher education can no longer rely on “warehouse learning,” cramming hundreds of students in a room, employing only one teaching style and expecting it to work for everyone.
More students thrive in problem-solving environments in which they can learn and operate according to their own individual style. Online instruction augments classroom learning and offers vast new opportunities to deliver personalized learning.
- Focus on post-graduation:
Students need an education grounded in the real work they’ll be doing after graduation. As an industry, we need to do a better job of listening to the people and companies who will employ our students, whose success depends on our ability to shut our mouths and open our ears. When we engage corporations more deeply, partnerships can be about more than fundraising and naming rights. They lead to more tailored, targeted programs that address the most high-priority needs for employers—and jobs for our students.
Online education is the future of the education system It’s a changing world. We live in an era of technological innovation, digitization and an internet boom, and the education sector has evolved to a stage that would hardly have been believable a few years ago. Change is often enumerated by resistance, and bringing about any change to education, likewise has been no simple task. Only a systemic change could prompt the establishment of new teaching methodologies and the application of advanced technology in education.
But despite challenges, online learning is making tremendous progress in permeating all pillars of education, from corporate learning to higher education, to K-12 schooling. Leaders in these areas have discovered some significant ways in which online learning is better than in-person learning, and as a result, we’re seeing the widespread implementation of connected technology to drive education initiatives. With the advent of digital innovation and e-commerce, the world is your oyster where you can get almost anything and everything at the tap of your finger, without leaving the comfort of your home.
Gone are the days when the only way to learn and advance was to sit through tiresome lectures. As the number of online users grows by the day, more and more people are taking to the internet for their learning needs. Yet if you’re considering moving to online learning, it’s important to know why you should. Well, there are several reasons why online education continues to grow in popularity and is indisputably the next big thing. The factors range from the wide variety of course offerings, flexibility, and learning pace, to quality of pedagogy and networking opportunities.
