Notes In the next couple of years, I was informally involved with the writing of the book, mainly serving as a sounding board to one of its co-authors, Michael Horn. During that time, I was proselytizing for the introduction of technology as an integral part of the curriculum, a mantra that mostly fell on deaf ears. However, with the publication of “Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns,” the conversations changed and the idea began to gain traction. The Hume Foundation was the first funder of Innosight Institute’s Education Practice, the think tank established by Clayton Christensen as well as Michael Horn to promulgate disruptive solutions to both education and health care challenges, and I became a founding board member. (Innosight Institute later changed its name to the Clayton Christensen Institute.)
