Khan Academy: Out of the Screen, Into the Physical World

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I find it interesting that one of the influences of money on Khan Academy is to lead to a model that is much less scalable and much more selective in its enrolments. " Using part of a $5 million grant from the O’Sullivan Foundation, Khan is planning the next iteration of the Khan Academy, which will soon find its place in the physical world. ... it will take place somewhere between Portola Valley and Sunnyvale in Silicon Valley and will not be organized by grade level." Because kids in Silicon Valley are well known for their inability to access educational opportunities. There's a lot I like about Khan Academy - teaching elite classes to select students is something I don't.
