Interview by John Scorza
“As our the people in it more inextricably connected, the world itself comes to resemble one vast, inclusive schoolhouse.” ―Salman Khan
Salman Khan, founder of the Khan Academy, is a man with an ambitious mission. He wants to provide a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere. Today’s technology provides the tools to make education more portable, flexible and personal—and far more accessible.
In his book, The One World School House (Grand Central Publishing, 2012), Khan calls for a fundamental change from the often-dreary classroom experience of lectures and rote memorization.
He wants to restore excitement and active participation in learning. Under his model, students would work at their own pace; hands-on learning and interactive projects would be the norm; and teachers would serve as mentors and guides.
The nonprofit Khan Academy offers online educational videos and other tools to more than 26 million registered students in 190 countries. In a recent interview, Khan, @khanacademy on Twitter, shared some of his ideas and also had a lesson or two for HR professionals who want to harness the power of virtual learning, which he’ll share as a keynote speaker at the Society for Human Resource Management 2016 Annual Conference & Exposition in Washington, D.C., to be held June 19-22.
