It been quite a while since I saw something online as awesome as this.
60 Minutes had an interesting segment on the Khan Academy. One novel concept was “flipping the classroom”. This means students get assignments to watch the lecture, then go to class to do their homework and interact with the teacher. This way teachers can teach rather than lecture. Students can achieve at their own pace and customize their learning experience. This is revolutionary and just might be what is needed to make school effective again.
One thing Khan has right is focusing on content not technology. Too often developers are the ones trying to find the next big Internet thing and fail because they focus on technology.
