Clayton Christensen: Why online education is ready for disruption, now.

 

 

“The schools of today are basically custodial.  They’re taking care of kids in work hours that are essentially nine to five – when the whole society was assumed to work.  Clearly that’s changing in our society.  So should the timing.  We’re individualizing time: we’re personalizing time.  We’re not having everyone arrive at the same time, leave at the same time.  Why should kids arrive at the same time and leave at the same time?”

Clay’s viewpoints are always insightful.  I haven’t hard him talk about this aspect of education and the change of society’s schedule before.  It’s on The Next Web.
