Using technology to reduce the passivity of traditional education

COMMENTARY

The Stream - Can virtual classrooms change the way we learn?

The Stream - Yesterday 11:54 PM - Public

Salman Khan, a former hedge fund analyst, started the non-profit Khan Academy in 2006 as a way to bring free, online education to students and educators all over the world. He got the idea after using his webcam and basic software to tutor his younger cousin in maths.

Since then, Khan Academy’s 2,700 educational videos have received more than 98 million total views via YouTube. Khan has made most of the brief videos himself, though the organization recently partnered with other educators to broaden coursework beyond maths and science.

In this episode of The Stream, Salman Khan discusses Khan Academy, education reform, and how videos can change the future of education. The Stream - Can virtual classrooms change the way we learn?

youtube.com – Online coursework brings lessons to anyone with a computer, but does it forget the importance of trained educators?

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
