What’s So Significant About Khan Academy?
Sal Khan’s vision is simple… and yet it changes everything.
In his own words… “Too many people around the globe don’t have access to good education materials, or they are forced to learn through a system that doesn’t properly cater to their individual needs. We think the technology exists today to fundamentally change this, and we’re trying to build the tools and resources every student deserves.”
Imagine a free, World Class education for everyone. Khan Academy already has!
The POINT? As compelling as Khan’s vision is… there is an even deeper insight that we dare not miss! Did you catch it? With each new day, more and more information is accessible to more and more people.
Why so important? For those who train and develop leaders… things have changed.
Those you are training already have access to the information you seek to teach, before you offer it to them. They can go on-line (sometimes while your teaching it) and… download it, implement it, and even replicate it… without the need of a middleman like a church, denomination, college, seminary, local conference, workshop or conference.
And they can do at their own convenience… for less cost than traveling to your event.
The role of the teacher (resourcer) is now much more that of facilitation; helping learners process INFORMATION, identifying and synthesizing core truth, and how to turn insights into NEW BEHAVIOR. The future is about facilitating WHAT we know into HOW we live.
It is also why skills of COACHING and MENTORING are now important words. They are much more than “fad” words, or the “latest thing.” They are the new skills for a new day.
And it’s what’s behind our NEW delivery platform called
