Khan Academy

     Salman Khan developed the most used Internet, open-education resource for students and adults.  Check out Khan Academy and the available 2,100 free educational videos.  His presentation at the NAIS Annual Conference was impressive and convincing.  Students learning at a pace that inspires them to work and not be afraid to make mistakes.
     I love where Khan says, "This actually becomes the operating system for what goes on in the classroom where every student's allowed to work at their own pace and the teacher actually becomes more of a mentor or a coach."
     Perfect.  Exchange the traditional sage-on-the-stage approach for a more guide-on-the-side paradigm.
     Here, see what Bill has to say about it.
