Did you ever encounter a subject that was so difficult that you let it defeat you? Had you been allowed to work through your difficulties at your own pace, you might have excelled. In this entertaining presentation, social entrepreneur Sal Khan explains the logic behind “mastery-based learning,” a simple yet revolutionary education model whereby students engage in a topic until they fully grasp it and only then progress to more advanced knowledge. getAbstract believes Khan’s cogent lecture could teach educators and syllabus designers a thing or two about pedagogy.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why the current model of education is flawed,
- How “mastery-based learning” can address the existing system’s shortcomings and
- Why mastery-based learning will be critical in a post–information revolution society.
