Understanding the Kahn Academy

Posted on | March 23, 2011 | Comments Off

In Learning 2.0, I reference the Kahn Academy, the wildly successful and growing open-source video tutoring program.  Here Salman Kahn talks about how his video lectures have penetrated regular classrooms.  By removing the one-size fits all classroom, the teachers have used technology to humanize the classroom.  His TED speech here.  Listen to his notions about encouraging failure and experimentation.  Also, see the experiment in Los Altos, where the Academy videos are being used a few classrooms instead of the regular text.  (Thanks to Adriana Publico for bringing this to my attention.)
