Our guest for this episode is Julia Freeland Fisher, Director of Education at the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation. Julia and I discuss some of her recent work focusing on helping close the gap between what educational technology firms provide and what tech-forward school systems need, as well as her work around digital learning’s capacity to help students build social capital through the development of personal networks. Lastly, we discuss some of the overlap, or lack thereof, in the philosophies behind blended and competency-based learning (which Julia touches on a bit in this webinar she presented for EdTech Specialists, a Michigan-based consulting group). You can follow Julia on Twitter at @juliafreeland, as well as the Christensen Institute at @ChristensenInst, and read about all the Institute’s work on their website at http://www.christenseninstitute.org.
