Link above shows a young man I saw interviewed on the Charlie Rose show a while back. I think he will affect education significantly.

You can go to his website now and view over 2000 videos on many subjects.

When I started teaching 40 years ago I envisioned something like this. However, I did not have the computers, knowledge, education, skill, intelligence, wherewithall, motivation, etc. to make it happen. This guy does.

First off, I think the wealth of information is great, and if you had to teach yourself it is phenomenal.

That being said, it just reinforces the teacher-led,expert dominant view of education. In my experiences, kids learn much better through experiential, problem-solving based learning. What is Khan Academy but a video lecture?
