This Is What Happens When A Kid Leaves Traditional Education

This Is What Happens When A Kid Leaves Traditional Education | Controversial Education: The Pro's and Con's of Khan Academy. | Scoop.it
Logan Laplante is a 13 year-old boy who was taken out of the education system to be home schooled instead. Not only was he home schooled, but Logan had the ability to tailor his education to his interests and also his style of learning, something traditional education does not offer.

Allie Duffney's insight:

Alternative learning environments help highlight the need to think outside the box in education to ensure that the education students receive support them in their lives, not just in the jobs they are expected to assume when they exit the educational system.

▶ Rethinking Education - Sal Khan: 3 MIT Degrees, 85,487,485 Lessons Delivered - YouTube

Allie Duffney's insight:

This is similar to Sal Khan's TED lecture, however, it is important to listen as he describes in the first two and a half minutes how many people this type of educational platform has already allowed him to reach. Khan Academy had six plus times as many new students in the last month as Harvard University has ever graduated.  It gives a great argument for one way quality global education can be achieved.

Salman Khan of Khan Academy named by Obama as a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship - The American Bazaar

Salman Khan of Khan Academy named by Obama as a Presidential Ambassador for Global Entrepreneurship - The American Bazaar | Controversial Education: The Pro's and Con's of Khan Academy. | Scoop.it
Salman Khan, founder of the Khan Academy, has been named by President Barack Obama as one of 11 new Presidential Ambassadors for Global Entrepreneurship (PAGE).
Allie Duffney's insight:

K-12 education is not intended to support students only during the timeline of their K-12 experience; it is meant to propel them forward and give them resources to pull upon as they continue into the world. Khan Academy is a databank of information for anyone to access at any time, for any reason. This idea for education is innovative, global, and is making some professionals within the education profession feel a bit uneasy.
