Michael Horn’s Next Disruptive Moves

Ed Elements in the News

Michael Horn left the Clayton Christensen Institute on October 10 in search of new challenges. Now the man renowned for applying “disruptive innovation” ideas to education will find his next career to be even more chaotic.

In a column announcing his departure, Horn expressed a desire to put theory into action by working directly with education companies. Already he’s landed advisory roles at Pedago, a startup based in Washington, D.C. that offers a test prep app for MBA students, and Los Altos, CA-based Intellus Learning (formerly Ace Learning), which helps higher-ed institutions curate and align digital content to course objectives and analyze student outcomes.

Now Horn is adding another hat to his collection: He will serve on the board of directors at Education Elements, which provides consulting, implementation and technology services to help K-12 schools run blended learning models.

So much for a break.

The role offers Horn the opportunity to help grow a familiar business. Since 2007, he and his team were among the first to define and profile the various “ blended learning” models used in schools through a series of books and reports.
