TED Talk: Khan Academy's New Data Reveals Game-Changing Reality

This TED talk by Salman Khan (below) gives enough background for those who are unfamiliar with the YouTube education sensation of Khan Academy, yet it also reveals exciting new data from the new exercises part of the Khan Academy web site. The data is revealing that we may have some core misunderstandings about classifying kids and their learning ability. It is also showing wonderful results from experimental "flipping the classroom" math classes for 5th and 7th graders in the Los Altos school district.

Witness the birth of a prime component of a new educational system.
