About this product
- DescriptionClay Christensen's groundbreaking bestselling work in education w updated and expanded, including a new chapter on Christensen's seminal Jobs to Be Done theory applied to education. Provocatively titled, Disrupting Class is just what America's K-12 education system needs--a well thought-through proposal for using techlogy to better serve students and bring our schools into the 21st Century. Unlike so many education 'reforms,' this is t small-bore stuff. For that reason alone, it's likely to be resisted by defenders of the status quo, even though it's necessary and right for our kids.
