Education in a Digital Age

May I add a sixth issue which I believe students should study?

That would be The philosophy and practice of Disruption.

Disruption has been the philosophy behind much of the technological innovation and change over the past 14 or 15 years or so. Yet, I believe few people really understand it or could practice it. This is why I feel it should be studied. Not just to give people a better understanding of it but also to enable them to recognise its influence and effects upon their lives in the future. Also, for potential entrepreneurs and innovators, understanding and applying Disruption could benefit them.

Of course, just because Disruption has been a key factor in the recent past, does not mean it will continue to be in the future but it can still provide learning opportunities for future innovation. Also, it would be wrong to believe their is only one model of ‘disruption’, which is probably another reason why it should be studied, so that the different theories, nuances and models can be better understood and deployed.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
