  2. 2. “Disrupting Class” By Personalizing Education Via Technology Q: What do you see as the major problems in the current education system and how will disruptive innovation help correct them? A: The biggest problem in the current education system is that not every student learns in the same, standard way, and yet schools standardize the way they teach and test. Using the computer as the delivery platform for learning has the potential to break the trade-offs between customization and affordability, which could ultimately allow students to learn in their preferred styles and at their preferred pace. http://disruptingclass.mhprofessional.com/apps/ab/expert-qa/You’ll learn how• Customized learning will help many more students succeed in school• Student-centric classrooms will increase the demand for new technology• Computers must be disruptively deployed to every student• Disruptive innovation can circumvent roadblocks that have prevented other attempts at school reform• We can compete in the global classroom-and get ahead in the global markethttp://disruptingclass.mhprofessional.com/apps/ab/about-the-book/

  24. 24. SV Seed Funding for Blended Learning Initiatives The Silicon Schools Fund aims to provide grants of approximately $700,000 to the fledgling schools over four years to get them started. But all programs will be designed to survive on the approximate $7,000 per student per year provided by the state of California, Greenberg said. School leaders will decide on their education approach, including how much--or how little--technology their programs need. https://www.edsurge.com/n/silic on-schools-fund-lands-12- http://www.siliconschools.com/ million/

  31. 31. WSJ Review of “Exam Schools” Book Exam schools arent the only way to serve gifted students, but they certainly represent the most concerted effort. First, they find extremely motivated students—kids who dont want to stay home even when they are sick because they worry about falling too far behind. Classes are often run on schedules closer to a college arrangement than a high-school one, with longer classes meeting two or three times a week.http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444032404578010662785531602.html Private & Confidential
