Michael B. Horn is the co-founder and Executive Director, Education of Innosight Institute. He is the co-author of Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns (McGraw-Hill: June 2008) with Harvard Business School Professor and bestselling author Clayton M. Christensen and Curtis W. Johnson, president of the Citistates Group.

Leland Anderson is a Visiting Research Fellow in Innosight Institute’s Education Practice and assistant principal at American Heritage School in Utah where he oversees institutional advancement, accreditation, and new program developments. Prior to this, he studied at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, interned as a principal at Madison Park High School in Boston, and taught eighth- and ninth-grade English at Oak Canyon Junior High School, a public junior high school in Utah. He has also worked as a design assistant at BYU’s Center for Instructional Design were he assisted in developing interactive college-level online courses.

Anderson holds a BA in English Teaching and a Minor in Management from Brigham Young University, both with University Honors, as well as an Ed.M. in School Leadership from Harvard University.

Since the publication of Disrupting Class, Innosight have focused their research on disruptions at work in education—from their promise to their current shortfalls and from how they work in the trenches to what other pieces of the system must fall into place for them to transform the education system into a student-centric one.

The first of these case studies details how a small district in Utah has employed online learning to serve students it had not been serving. You can download the full case study here: http://www.innosightinstitute.org/innosight/wp-content/uploads/2009....

The publication of this case study represents an important milestone for Innosight. They will now publish one case study every couple months, and we will soon follow this up with analytical white papers that contain policy prescriptions and new insights using the theories of disruptive innovation. Michael will be reporting on future studies here at the Future of Education.
