Product Description

Review

I've used Khan Academy with my kids, and I'm amazed at the breadth of Sal's subject expertise and his ability to make complicated topics understandable. Sal Khan is a true education pioneer. He started by posting a math lesson, but his impact on education might truly be incalcuable. (Bill Gates, Time)

Book Description

A groundbreaking and visionary approach to how we can all best learn.

Format: Kindle Edition
Over the years, a distressing scene has been replayed in homes across the land far too many times... A panic-stricken child finally realises that parents aren't - after all - capable of helping out when really needed. While said parents, irritable and helpless when confronted with modern Maths/Chemistry/typically hard subject, find they aren't remotely equipped to assist with homework. Tempers fray under the pressure and the generation gap yawns into an unbridgeable chasm. However this scene can be consigned to history, thanks to Salman Khan and his Khan Academy.

I first heard about the Khan Academy from the talented science fiction writer Tricia Sullivan at Eastercon, where she enthused about teaching herself Maths up to calculus level, thanks to the online lessons now available to anyone with a computer and internet connection. Immediately, I checked it out and was extremely impressed at the extensive series of colourful, unthreatening lessons and the self-testing tasks to ensure you have fully grasped the concept before you move on.

So it was a real treat when my mother sent me this book thank you, Mum!). Khan had lots of fascinating things to say about the current, unsatisfactory manner in which we teach children. As an ex-primary school teacher, I found myself muttering in agreement at his observations at the broken-backed system that - as far as I can see - is in place as a cheap way of keeping children off the streets rather than equipping them with relevant knowledge fit for the 21st century. Khan suggests that instead of having a teacher deliver a lesson to a group of children in a totally arbitrary manner, they learn individually at their own pace using modern technology with the teacher acting as enabler.

I am hooked! and at my age too! If this was available to me more than half a century ago I would have been the top in my class! MK.

He is writing from a position where he is already well into his task of changing education through Khan Academy. This is simply an expansion and extrapolation of that. I would love my 5 year old to go to a school based on Sal's ideas.

This first half of the book seems aimed at people who has just come across Sal Khan and the ideas he communicates.
The second half is where the book really kicks off - Khan academy's history, and Sal's future plans are discussed.
A good read, although the first half could be condensed slightly.

Khan writes with admirable clarity and simplicity but his ideas are profound and far-reaching. This book will change the way you think.

Mainstream schooling and education has the opportunity to learn and improve by applying the concepts, practices and materials provided by and through Sal Khan's work. My experiences in visiting schools in several continents indicate ways technology can help people learn and teach more effectively and more usefully. Sal's book provides encouraging examples and his rationale of how and why.
