What does Sal speak about?
Teachers and parents around the world worry that the explosion of AI will completely undermine education as we know it. But Sal Khan, founder of the non-profit Khan Academy, says that doesn’t have to be the case. “We’re at the cusp of using AI for the biggest positive transformation that education has ever seen,” says Sal. Rather than helping students plagiarize, AI tools can become a personal mentor for every student, capable of lifting the struggling to the proficient, and the proficient to the extraordinary.
In his eye-opening and inspiring talks, Sal envisions an educational revolution where AI not only supplements teaching, but personalizes it. Drawing on his decade of experience as CEO of Khan Academy, he offers a blueprint for an educational system that caters to individual pace and learning style, supporting both students and teacher.
Pushing for innovation in education through open interaction, technological integration, and adaptive learning platforms, Sal is turning the traditional classroom into a community of collaborative, self-paced learning.
