Khan Academy on the Gates Notes


SALMAN KHAN: Hi, my
name is Sal Khan. I’m the founder and faculty
of the Khan Academy, and we’re trying to
educate the world. Welcome to the presentation
on basic addition. In August of 1789,
they’ve already done their version of the
Declaration of Independence. The process is called
photosynthesis. I was tutoring my
cousins, literally, and I had to figure out
a way to scale myself up. So I started recording
YouTube videos, and I started making little
software modules for them. But I made it so
anyone could use them and started getting
a lot of traction. BILL GATES: What Sal
Khan has done is amazing. He’s taken all this material,
and broken them down into little 12-minute lectures. I use it myself to
remind myself of things. I have children who like it. So I was super happy
he came up, and we got to talk about
where does he go now? How can my foundation
help him pursue this dream and connect it up with the
other great things going on in the internet? SALMAN KHAN: I want it to be a
standalone virtual school where anyone in the world who
wants to learn anything can go there, start
from the basics, progress as far as
they need to go, get feedback, get
assessment, get practice. And eventually I want it to
actually become the operating system for what goes on
in the classroom, where every student’s allowed
to work at their own pace, and the teacher actually becomes
more of a mentor or a coach. BILL GATES: So I see
Sal Khan as a pioneer in an overall movement
to use technology to let more and more
people learn things, know where they stand. It’s the start of a revolution. SALMAN KHAN: All of the
videos, they’re all free. Openly accessible. www.khanacademy.org BILL GATES: I think it’s
a huge contribution. Everybody should check it out.

  1. My calculus teacher uses this to give more insight into the hard material, and his videos are really successful in having the math make sense.

    The very fact that his videos are free for everyone really is a great thing, rather than those other stingy subscription based math websites.

  2. KA = new world order and CIA front….
    Take a look at the Ted Talk
    Notice the MASSIVE data mining potential which can be used on OUR children.
    Also "one world classroom", seriously, fuck off.

  3. i love khan academy! im trying to get my ged and math is soooo hard for me and this site is the only thing that has helped, i tried books and other sites but nothing was this interactive and I have yet to find other videos as helpful as these. sal is the greatest teacher, better than any of the teachers that I had in school.

  4. Khan Academy is amazing. Sadly, I have no money to donate, but I've been adding subtitles to a lot of videos from Khan Academy (I'm a Spanish speaker), so at least I can feel like I'm retributing a tiny bit. Thanks for such an amazing website, Sal!
