A free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere: this is the goal of the Khan Academy, a passion project that grew from an ex-engineer and hedge funder's online tutoring sessions with his niece, who was struggling with algebra, into a worldwide phenomenon. Today millions of students, parents, and teachers use the Khan Academy's free videos and software, which have expanded to encompass nearly every conceivable subject; and Academy techniques are being employed with exciting results in a growing number of classrooms around the globe.
In order to further share his vision, Salman Khan put his ideas on paper in his new book, The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined, which includes his diagnosis for the problems in America’s current education system and solutions for fostering creativity among students and utilizing technology effectively in the classroom.
To mark the publication of The One World Schoolhouse, Salman Khan will present his vision for the future of education in conversation with businessman and philanthropist Carlos Slim.
