Arnett, Thomas – Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, 2021
Practically overnight, the spread of COVID-19 caused a sudden shutdown of classroom-based instruction--the centuries-old emblem of formal education.

Alumni networks are part of the bill of goods that colleges and universities sell to students.

This year, K-12 schools, colleges, and universities have doubled down on their endeavors to support students through a global health crisis, economic uncertainty, severe weather, and political turmoil.

Waite, Chelsea – Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, 2021
Among the lessons to take away from COVID-19 in the K-12 sector, one is this: we can never again say that schools haven't changed in a hundred years. After a year in which all schools upended the status quo to support students' learning and wellbeing during a pandemic, the most vocal critics of outdated school systems must acknowledge that even…

Arnett, Thomas – Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, 2021
After the COVID-19 pandemic forced school buildings to close, online learning became a lifeline for K-12 education. It let schools carry on in "the cloud" when they could not meet in person.

Online learning moved swiftly from the periphery to the core of K-12 education since it offered the…

Staker, Heather; Arnett, Thomas; Powell, Allison – Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, 2020
The idea of student-centered learning is not new; teachers have long sought to design personalized, competency-based environments that are tailored to individuals and that empower students to drive their own learning. What is new is the emergence of an online learning ecosystem and, with it, the technical possibility of equipping all students with…

Waite, Chelsea; Arnett, Thomas – Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, 2020
Two pandemics--COVID-19 and systemic racism--are confronting American society, and by extension K-12 schools. Both pandemics have precipitated immediate challenges that schools must navigate, and also draw attention to longstanding, chronic problems in the education system. It's more clear than ever that a return to "normal" won't serve…

But far fewer actually measure…

Price, Richard – Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, 2019
With one million defaults on student loans every year, and $1.6 trillion in outstanding student debt, it's clear the US is in desperate need of innovative funding models in higher education.
