PDF DOWNLOAD The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined TRIAL EBOOK
A free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere: this is the goal of the Khan Academy, a passion project that grew from an ex-engineer and hedge funder s online tutoring sessions with his niece, who was struggling with algebra, into a worldwide phenomenon. Today millions of students, parents, and teachers use the Khan Academy s free videos and software, which have expanded to encompass nearly every conceivable subject; and Academy techniques are being employed with exciting results in a growing number of classrooms around the globe. Like many innovators, Khan rethinks existing assumptions and imagines what education could be if freed from them. And his core idea-liberating teachers from lecturing and state-mandated calendars and opening up class time for truly human interaction-has become his life s passion. Schools seek his advice about connecting to students in a digital age, and people of all ages and backgrounds flock to the site to utilize this fresh approach to learning. In THE ONE WORLD SCHOOLHOUSE, Khan presents his radical vision for the future of education, as well as his own remarkable story, for the first time. In these pages, you will discover, among other things: How both students and teachers are being bound by a broken top-down model invented in Prussia two centuries agoWhy technology will make classrooms more human and teachers more importantHow and why we can afford to pay educators the same as other professionalsHow we can bring creativity and true human interactivity back to learningWhy we should be very optimistic about the future of learning.Parents and politicians routinely bemoan the state of our education system. Statistics suggest we ve fallen behind the rest of the world in literacy, math, and sciences.

Diary Entry of a Diverse Student. Consider the demographic of your local school and identify one student from a background that would be most different from your own. Imagine the first day of school from this student’s perspective as you are introduced to the class as his or her new teacher. This is a creative writing piece where you are expected to step outside your own world view and into the shoes of the “other” in your classroom. You may need to research a bit about the culture of the student whose perspective you will be writing from and ask friends or colleagues to help you better understand your typical body language and how that does or might translate to the classroom and teaching style. Use the following guiding questions to help guide you in writing this 1-2 page paper:
a. What do you think the student’s first impressions of you might be? (Be honest and consider how the verbal and non-verbal cues you might give out would be interpreted by this student).
b. How might the student relate to your background? (i.e. Do you appear to represent the dominant group in society and would your relationship with the dominant group impact your relationship with the student?)
c. How do you address and interact with the student and what are some of the ways you strive to engage all students in the classroom?
