Over the last several months I have been perusing TED talks http://www.ted.com/. Last week, I came across one about Khan Academy, a free education website that covers an immense breadth of topics from basic math to physics, from elementary government types to in depth discussions on how legislation happens. I’ve hardly begun studying these videos, but I’m excited about how they can help my wife and I teach our kids complex topics, or simply provide another viewpoint on subjects they might have trouble understanding.
What an exciting idea.
