Thompson, Clive, “How Khan Academy Is Changing the Rules of Education,” Wired, July 15, 2011.
Please come prepared to discuss the following questions:
In some ways the Khan Academy model of self-directed learning has so much to offer regions in India where student interest may be high, but resources and teacher accountability can be astonishingly low. Readily available hardware, software, and internet connectivity could do much to allow individual students to take charge of their educations, through Khan Academy, and unlock their own potential. How would you begin to tackle such a proposition? Do you think such efforts could have the impact without teacher support?
