Google defines disruption as a “disturbance or problems that interrupt an event, activity, or process”. We need to look at disruption as a concept to use and implement in education, not as a problem, but as a strategy to formulate solutions to current problems. Like many other trends in education, we also need to avoid the concept of “disruption” to be a mere buzzword, and we should work towards creating real tangible solutions.

Check out the whole magazine here, and my article is on page 36.
