A free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere: this is the goal of the Khan Academy, a passion project that grew from an ex-engineer and hedge funder's online tutoring sessions with his niece, who was struggling with algebra, into a worldwide phenomenon. Today millions of students, parents, and teachers use the Khan Academy's free videos and software, which have expanded to encompass nearly every conceivable subject; and Academy techniques are being employed with exciting results in a growing number of classrooms around the globe. Like many innovators, Khan rethinks existing assumptions and imagines what education could be if freed from them. And his core idea-liberating teachers from lecturing and state-mandated calendars and opening up class time for truly human interaction-has become his life's passion. Schools seek his advice about connecting to students in a digital age, and people of all ages and backgrounds flock to the site to utilize this fresh approach to learning. In The One World Schoolhouse, Khan presents his radical vision for the future of education, as well as his own remarkable story, for the first time. In these pages, you will discover, among other things: How both students and teachers are being bound by a broken top-down model invented in Prussia two centuries ago 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. Parents and politicians routinely bemoan the state of our education system. Statistics suggest we've fallen behind the rest of the world in literacy, math, and sciences. With a shrewd reading of history, Khan explains how this crisis presented itself, and why a return to "mastery learning," abandoned in the twentieth century and ingeniously revived by tools like the Khan Academy, could offer the best opportunity to level the playing field, and to give all of our children a world-class education now. More than just a solution, The One World Schoolhouse serves as a call for free, universal, global education, and an explanation of how Khan's simple yet revolutionary thinking can help achieve this inspiring goal.

"Chapters I-II of this thesis examine Khan Academy and its uses in the modern mathematics classroom. Consideration is given to several Blended Learning Models, and the benefits of each, as well as to user experiences when implementing technology in the classroom. Chapters III-IV investigate the implementation and results of utilization of Khan Academy in two high school math classrooms at an urban Midwest performing arts high school. Students in a geometry course who used Khan Academy as a secondary resource, as well as students in a remedial math class who used Khan Academy as a primary tool, made significant gains in mathematical knowledge in comparison with students from the same classes in previous years. This study examines the effective implementation of technology in the classroom and the supports the effectiveness of the classroom model described by Salman Khan in this book The One World School House."--Abstract.

Praise for Blended "There is a lot of hope and misunderstanding around onlinelearning and its relation to in-person learning. Blendedclearly shows that it isn't an either-or proposition, but ratherthat the most likely future is one in which online experiencesenrich the physical ones and vice versa. Even more, the book givesconcrete examples of how educators, parents, and learners can moveus all to a world where technology makes the classroom more human,not less." —SALMAN KHAN, founder, Khan Academy; author, The OneWorld Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined "Blended is the essential guide to move beyond therhetoric about personalized learning and toward a practicalstrategy. It provides a powerful framework that challengesconventional wisdom about how schools should respond to the digitalage." —JEB BUSH, chairman, Foundation for Excellence inEducation; former governor, Florida "The authors' real genius is in using research and theory totake the guesswork out of moving our schools forward into thetwenty-first century." —JIM HUNT, foundation chair, The Hunt Institute; formergovernor, North Carolina "Teachers will play a critical role in the transition to blendedlearning. This book gives a roadmap for including educators in thedesign of blended learning and for thinking through ways to empowergreat teachers." —VICKI PHILLIPS, director of education, Bill &Melinda Gates Foundation "Several years ago Michael Horn told us in DisruptingClass how online learning would rapidly affect modern teachingand learning. In Blended, Horn and Staker move fromprediction to practice, detailing through solid research,observation, and case studies how blended learning is transformingtraditional schools into 24-7 learning centers." —BOB WISE, president, Alliance for Excellent Education;former governor, West Virginia
