Disruptive innovation…

Posted on October 5, 2020


I’m reading “Failure to Disrupt.” Oy. Page 59-60: There’s a clip about “disruptive innovation” with Sony Walkman as an example of something that had low quality in some areas but would sell madly to “non-consumers” who wouldn’t buy the quality stuff anyway, because of some novel features.

Talk about an apt metaphor for education. Let’s throw software out there — no, it doesn’t work well, but for all y’alls who aren’t going to get the good stuff anyway? We can sell you this!!!
