“Schools and software: What’s now and what’s next,” a study from The Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation explores how smaller school systems are partnering with suppliers to get customized solutions that meet their districts’ needs, and how they afford those solutions. Here are a few ways that the academic software market could shift:
1. Providing online learning programs that combine assignable and adaptive elements in an engaging way.
2. Offering “native” Common Core content, rather than content that has been re-tagged to align with the standards.
3. Sorting academic software by use-case, rather than by features and functions.
4. Offering more intuitive software products.
