What We Take With Us And What We Leave Behind in K-12 Education


The last year has asked more of educators and the technology that empowers them to serve learners than ever before. Now, with the dust finally settling after a year of hurried remote learning setups, conversations about hybrid solutions and more, it’s time to figure out exactly how the education industry will move forward in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the in-person ASU+GSV Summit on the horizon, host JW Marshall invited Guild Education’s Michael Horn to this episode of The Age of Digital Learning to source his expert forecast about that march forward, particularly as it relates to K-12 education.

As a Senior Strategist for Guild Education, Horn also has leading insight into the world of education at large. Guild Education’s mission is to “unlock opportunity for America’s workforce through education and upskilling with a double bottom line business model that does well by doing good.”

Marshall and Horn dug into whether the acceleration in education and edtech is actually moving too quickly, as that rapid growth was created by sheer necessity and may not be wholly indicative of a sustainable trajectory. However, even if growth expectations are perhaps outsized, the innovation is still unquestionably powerful in terms of providing more access to more learners, many of which hadn’t had the tools to succeed in remote or hybrid environments.

Further, Horn believes the consolidation in the edtech industry has been good in the short term, allowing companies to pool resources to facilitate this growth and innovation, but also that it could be good in the long term by creating room for disruption and new players eager to leave their own mark.

Listen to the full episode for more leading insights from the pair of edtech experts.
