TEDTalks: Salman Khan on reinventing Education

This is an awesome video by Salman Khan of the Khan Academy on reinventing education using the same techniques he's pioneered online. In essence flipping he traditional school model on its head by having kids learn at their own pace in the classroom, with the students helping each other and the teachers tracking progress and showing them how to apply the fundamentals. Kids use the videos to master basic subjects and teachers see instant tracking via dashboards on each students progress.

Check out the video:
