Khan Academy is Changing Education

Education is evolving!

E-learning, like that offered by ABA English, is changing the way people learn all over the world. There is a new way to learn math and science online as well. Khan Academy is teaching millions of people every day with YouTube videos that last approximately ten minutes. Their mission is to “provide a high quality education to anyone, anywhere.” Their videos on math and science subjects are great, refreshing lessons to reinforce key points learned in the classroom.

Below is a TED talk by the creator of Khan Academy, Salman Khan. He talks about the mission of the academy, its current services, and how he hopes to take the project to places as far as Africa and Asia as an easy way to teach disadvantaged children. The lessons are currently being translated into ten other languages.

We wish this had existed when we were still in school! Even if the subjects don’t interest you, do you think they are a good idea? Do you think this is the future of education?

Vocabulary

    Was it a typo? In the article above you wrote, “Khan Academy is teaching millions of people everyday . . . ”

    You should have used “every day.”

      You’re correct Sara! Typo. Thanks for pointing it out!! :)
