Salman Khan at TED

This 2011 TedTalk has been viewed almost 3.5 million times. Salman Khan talks about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects. He shows the power of interactive exercises, and calls for teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script — give students video lectures to watch at home, and do "homework" in the classroom with the teacher available to help.

Towards the end of this 20-minute video, you will see an appearance by a well-known figure whose contributions to technology impact our lives on a daily basis.


Do you see parallels between the use of technology as seen here to help students, report to teachers, and guide instruction and the opportunities available to us in Stride Academy?
