A teaching and learning experience for the 21st century

You might have skipped this recent TED talk from Salman Khan: Let’s use video to reinvent education. If you are, in one way or another, concerned with teaching and education at large, I urge you to see it.

This is the amazing story of a guy, wasting his life and brain power as Senior Analyst at an American hedge fund (one of the glorified toxic jobs of our time) and suddenly realising he can provide a free world-class education to anyone, anywhere.

This mission is now undertaken by a not-for-profit organization. Check KhanAcademy.org and you will understand: I think this is the first step towards a new teaching and learning experience in the 21st century.

With this innovation, everyone is better off: how many companies can say they have achieved this nowadays?
