Disruptive innovation

Here is a post that I found on a blogsite the other day after I presented at ETLC in Redford. I have been busy working on the website for Disruptive Innovation, so I have not posted much on the blog site lately.

The next hot topic revolves around disruptive innovation. Fred Sharpsteen describes disruptive innovation and how it relates to education. His research specifically relates to how students need a customized learning environment that compliments their individual needs. Technology is the rogue wave that needs to disrupt the educational systems of today. Teaching methods must not just integrate technology but must imbed it into the teaching and learning process. Therein lines our dilemma, with continued cutbacks and loss of funding how do we do that if we don't have the technology?
