  • ""A free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere: this is the goal of the Khan Academy, a passion project that grew from an ex-hedge funder's online tutoring sessions with his niece, who was struggling with algebra, into a worldwide phenomenon. Today, millions have viewed and subscribed to the Khan Academy's YouTube videos, which have expanded to encompass nearly every conceivable subject. Like all great innovators, Sal Khan established himself as an outsider, with no teaching background to tie him to broken models. And his breakthrough idea has become his life's passion.

  • "This book is Khan's passionate and practical introduction to his vision for the future of education, a vision that shows why conventional classroom teaching may no longer be the best way. Among his discoveries, Khan found the following: Keep the 'lesson' short, no more than 10 minutes ; Let the pupil set the pace, by taking responsibility they gain confidence ; The more intimate and focussed the learning the better ; Testing shouldn't exclude or limit, but identify learning styles ; Technology is a powerful aid to learning and long term understanding."
