‘The One World Schoolhouse': Salman Khan’s vision for education, in his new book


The One World Schoolhouse fleshes out the story and vision that began with my talk at TED,” Salman Khan tells the TED Blog. His new book, out this week, lays out a bold strategy for bringing “a free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere.” In the book, Khan talks about such points as:

Why technology will make classrooms more human and teachers more important
How and why we can afford to pay educators the same as other professionals
How we can bring creativity and true human interactivity back to learning
Why we should be very optimistic about the future of learning

About the book, TED’s curator, Chris Anderson, writes: “The world dreams of education reform, and Sal Khan is delivering. His pioneering video lessons have brought the thrill of learning to millions. In this compelling book, he tells the remarkable story of Khan Academy, and explains the potential in students learning at their own pace and achieving true subject mastery.”
