Salman Khan

Educator | Innovator

One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined

November 11, 2020 | 7:30pm | William Saroyan Theatre

Named one of​ Time’s​ “100 Most Influential People in the World,” Salman Khan’s visionary company began humbly with math tutorials posted on YouTube for his younger cousin. As founder and CEO of Khan Academy, Khan shares his vision of providing a free world-class education to anyone, anytime, anywhere through online educational videos already viewed over 1.7 billion times. Inspiring teachers and students alike, Khan has sparked a worldwide, educational phenomenon that offers personalized instruction on topics ranging from preschool math to precalculus, English language to economics, and coding to computer animation. Khan Academy empowers teachers to personalize instruction in the classroom and inspires students to accelerate their learning with a customized curriculum. By “flipping classrooms” using Khan Academy for direct instruction, teachers have more time to offer individual attention and design creative projects, while students can access Khan tutorials for free to master lessons. Khan’s goal? Create a one world schoolhouse that opens the doors of education to all.
