Khan Academy - Free Education Goes Viral

  1. 1. Khan Academy - Free Education Goes Viral Peter Kuperman
  2. 2. Introduction  Peter Kuperman, founder and CEO of Hatch Canada, uses his passion for education to teach kids to code. One of his inspirations for his business was Khan Academy. After relocating to California, Peter Kuperman dedicated a year and a half to assist in the development of that innovative online learning program, contributing JavaScript-based mathematics exercises and an early iteration of Khan’s teacher resources pages. Khan Academy offers free, self-directed instruction in computer coding, programming, and animation. It opens up whole new worlds for people of all ages through classes in math, science, art, and economics. Students can also benefit from its test preparation section. Studying for the SAT, GMAT, MCAT, and other exams just got easier and more streamlined.
  3. 3. Khan Academy  Khan Academy’s mastery-based approach was based on founder Salman Khan’s tutoring of his many cousins. Eventually, someone said, “Why don’t you just put it on YouTube?” and an educational game-changer was born. In 2011, with 50 million lessons already delivered, Khan appeared on The Colbert Report to promote his system. The basic idea behind Khan Academy is that anyone, anywhere, can teach himself or herself anything. Schools have used Khan Academy’s thousands of free video lessons to supplement in-class instruction. In a recent study commissioned by the Gates Foundation, one-third of students in underserved K-12 schools said they enjoyed math more after using Khan Academy lessons.
