Abstract:
How does online learning stand to transform our educational system over the next several years? This is what Christen Clayton and Michael Horn have coined, "Disruptive Innovation," in their book, Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns. This session will look at how other innovations are standing by ready to replace public education as we know it today if we don't work to transform our school systems rapidly. Internet traffic is increasing at a rapid rate due to online learning and streaming educational videos. As CTO, are your organization's systems ready for these changes? Is your wireless network system up to the task needed to support these changes? What trends do Level 5 leaders need to be looking at?
