Salman Khan: Let's use video to reinvent education

Salman Khan: Let's use video to reinvent education
Salman Khan talks about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects. 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 available to help. This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.

Ali Carr-Chellman: Fiúk tanulási kedvének visszaszerzése videojátékokkal So I'm here to tell youthat we have a problem with boys,and it's a serious problem with boys.Their culture isn't working in schools,and I'm going to share with youways that we can think about overcoming that problem.First, I want to start by saying, this is a boy,and this is a girl,and this is probably stereotypicallywhat you think of as a boy and a girl.If I essentialize gender for you today,then you can dismiss what I have to say.So I'm not going to do that.

How do we know that? Thank you.

I'm going to work hard.On the other hand, there's the liking processes,fun and affectionand delightand an enormous flying beast with an orc on the back.It's a really great image.

He's right to do so. Every year, we spend more public money and more resources per student and, overall, we see no increase in test scores or outcomes. "Millions of black and Hispanic students in U.S. schools simply aren't taught to read well enough to flourish academically. For them, the end of the school year marks another lost opportunity, another step toward a life of blunted potential," writes Williams. "According to a March report by Child Trends, based on 2015 data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), only 21% of Hispanic fourth-grade students were deemed 'proficient' in reading.

The Building Blocks of Learning The ancient Greeks had different words for different kinds of love — like Ludus (playful love), Pragma (longstanding love) and Agape (universal love). Sixteen hundred years ago, Augustine argued that the essence of a good life is choosing the right things to love and loving them well. But over the past several centuries our models of human behavior have amputated love. Hobbes and other philosophers argued that society is a machine driven by selfishness.

12 Ways To Integrate (Not Just Use) Technology In Education There are a couple dozen ways to ‘use’ technology in education. There are also a couple dozen ways to integrate technology in education. Think those two things are the same? Think that throwing a few iPads and a few Edudemic blog posts into a classroom is the best way to launch a 1:1 initiative? In case you couldn’t guess, it’s not. So here’s a hypothetical to clear up my rhetorical questions even more:

Excellent presentation! Videos are very useful to complement learning. I also assign students to watch videos I have previously watched to help them understand better a topic or to introduce them to new content. by quijote17 Nov 12
