Salman Khan: Let's use video to reinvent education

I found this to be a really interesting video to watch.  Teachers that have the time to post well thought out and presented instructional videos are truly remarkable.  Many students benefit from being able to see a lesson again (or for the first time) in their own home.  Parents, who are looking to help their kids with their homework can also view the video with their child and then guide them through their homework.

From the website: "Salman Khan talks about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects. He shows the power of interactive exercises, and calls for teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script -- give students video lectures to watch at home, and do "homework" in the classroom with the teacher available to help."
