Salman Khan, creator of the Khan Academy, is using technology to revolutionalize education; humanizing the classroom, and providing teachers with tools and extensive information to help them better reach students. Khan spoke at a recent TED talk, where he said, “What you see emerging is this notion of a global, one world classroom. And that’s essentially what we are trying to do.” He shows the power of interactive exercises, and calls for teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script – give students video lectures to watch at home, and do “homework” in the classroom with the teacher and other students available to help.
