Sal Khan, Founder, Khan Academy; Author, The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined
In conversation with Kishore Hari, Director, Bay Area Science Festival
"I teach the way that I wish I was taught." – Sal Khan
When Sal Khan started helping his teenage cousin with algebra from across the country, he didn’t set out to change the world. Starting only with an office in his Bay Area apartment, he now has over 4,000 video lessons in his online library, ranging from chemistry to history to finance. Khan is truly an educational pioneer, reaching millions of students, teachers and individuals. Khan Academy’s mission to give a free, world-class education to anyone, anywhere has breached the educational divide between poor and privileged and pioneered a transformation at the intersection of learning and technology. INFORUM will award this educational innovator with our 21st Century Visionary Award. Don’t miss your chance to learn from one of the best teachers you’ll ever have, in conversation with a special guest, live at the Castro Theatre.
