Michael B Horn, is the co-founder of the distinguished fellow at the Clayton Christensen Institute (CCI) and the former executive director of his education program. Michael holds a bachelor's degree in history from Yale University and a master's degree from the Harvard Business School.

At the CCI, I have led the team that educates policymakers and community leaders on the power of disruptive innovation in the K-12 and higher education spheres through its research. His team aimed at transform monolithic, factory-model education systems into student-centric designs that educate every student successfully and enable each to realize his or her fullest potential. Currently, Michael serves as the Chief Strategy Officer for Entangled Ventures, an education technology studio, and as a principal consultant for Entangled Solutions, which offers innovation services to higher education institutions.

Michael published the groundbreaking book "Blended: Using Disruptive Innovation to Improve Schools" (John Wiley & Sons, November 2014), with co-author Heather Staker, that serves as a practical field guide and eye-opener for the builders and influencers of the next generation of K-12 learning environments. Most recently, Horn and Staker published the companion book, "The Blended Workbook" (John Wiley & Sons, August 2017).

In 2008, he co-authored the award-winning "Disrupting Class: How Disruptive Innovation Will Change the Way the World Learns" with Harvard Business School Professor Clayton M. Christensen and Curtis W. Johnson. Newsweek cited the book 14th on its list of "Fifty Books for Our Times." Michael has written several white papers about blended learning and is co-editor, with Frederick Hess, of the book "Private Enterprise and Public Education." He has also written articles for numerous publications including Forbes, The Washington Post, The Economist, The Huffington Post, and Education Week.

He is a frequent keynote speaker at conferences and planning sessions around the U.S.. Tech & Learning magazine named him into his list as one of the 100 most important people in the creation and advancement of the use of technology in education. Michael was also selected as a 2014 Eisenhower Fellow to study innovation in education in Vietnam and Korea.

In addition, he has served on the advisory boards of a range of education organizations, including the Clayton Christensen Institute, the Robin Hood Learning + Tech Fund, and the LearnLaunch Institute. He also serves as an executive editor at Education Next and is a venture partner at NextGen Venture Partners.
