Creator of Khan Academy and former hedge fund analyst Salman Khan says we can improve the classroom by integrating videos into the lessons. In this TEDEducation presentations he explains everything from how he got started all the way to the current Khan Academy website and his philosophy about education. Some how he started with videos for tutoring, and then ended up with one of the world’s most popular educational websites with over 1 billion students.
Most importantly, Khan’s lecture can give us an idea of where to take our classrooms. Not only are his videos important, but videos as a whole are a much more effective and user-friendly medium of learning. Using videos for homework and homework for classwork sounds like a profoundly more entertaining strategy to a student.
