The current issue of Forbes magazine (9/15) includes an article titled "Teaching to the New Test" written by Harvard Business School professors Clayton Christensen and Michael Horn. The article makes a case for online learning technology, provides a look at the Lexia Reading online program, and presents an interesting comparison of job training at an American automaker and at Toyota.
Christensen and Horn are the authors of a new book titled Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns. The Forbes article is based on content in that book.
"Teaching to the New Test" appears online at www.forbes.com/claytonchristensen/forbes/2008/0915/081.html.
