Join us in welcoming Michael Horn to the EdmodoCon speaker lineup! Co-Founder and Executive Director of Education at the Clayton Christensen Institute, Horn leads a team that educates policymakers and community leaders on the power of disruptive innovation in the K-12 and higher education spheres through its research. Their aim is to transform monolithic, factory-model education systems into student-centered designs that educate every student successfully and enable each to realize his or her fullest potential.
Horn is a published author and has written several white papers about blended learning. He has also written articles for numerous publications including Forbes, The Washington Post, The Economist, The Huffington Post, and Education Week. Tech&Learning magazine named him to its list of the 100 most important people in the creation and advancement of the use of technology in education. Michael was also selected as a 2014 Eisenhower Fellow to study innovation in education in Vietnam and Korea.
At this year’s EdmodoCon, Horn will wrap up the event with a panel dedicated to blended learning:
