Reclaiming The American Dream VI: The (Other) Lessons of Khan Academy

Howard Husock
This article is more than 6 years old.

To say that Khan Academy has important lessons to offer is to state the obvious. The Mountain View-based internet teaching institution—which has grown from founder Salman Khan’s individualized YouTube math lessons for his 7th grade niece to a worldwide phenomenon—offers thousands of free, plain-spoken online courses, from algebra to biology. But there are even broader lessons to be taken from the astounding success of Sal Khan, winner of the Manhattan Institute’s $100,000 2014 William E. Simon Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Social Entrepreneurship. Indeed, the lessons extend well beyond education

“纽约人正逐渐意识到,这一漫长的繁荣期已对我们眼中的经典纽约市容造成了破坏,”历史街区保护委员会(Historic Districts Council)的执行董事西蒙·班考夫(Simon Bankoff)说,他同时指出,2015年将是纽约市通过《地标建筑保护法》的50周年。“环顾左右,那些总被我们认为是一成不变的东西,却都在纷纷关门闭户。”

施密特在接受采访时问道,“为什么我们接连看到如此多的创纪录温暖年度?这是因为地球正在变暖。根本的问题是,这是一种长期趋势,这种趋势不会消失。”

The story of Khan Academy’s start and growth is dramatic. Sal Khan, New Orleans-born and MIT-educated, was working in the finance industry as a hedge fund analyst when, in 2004, he learned that his niece, Nadia, needed help with algebra. He began sending her his own clear, step-by-step illustrated lectures (Khan himself did not appear) via YouTube. That allowed other web users to use the same lessons. The teaching of Khan—a complete outsider to education or education reform—went viral, ultimately catching the eye of Bill Gates, whom Khan learned was helping his own children with lessons first meant for Nadia. Khan eventually attracted $15 million-plus in philanthropic support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Google , venture capitalist John Doerr, and others accustomed to the idea that radical newcomers might be worth investing in. Such funding allowed Khan to give up his day job and start Khan Academy, with a forthright, undeniably ambitious goal: a free world-class education, for anyone, anywhere.

鉴于计算机编程被冠以“美国经济中尚未开垦的处女地”称号,纽约编程及设计学院正在努力让“谈论”代码变得更简单。到2020年,美国市场上将会有150万个计算机科学相关岗位,而计算机科学专业毕业生则仅有40万人。此外,计算机科学相关岗位在全美的平均增长率是其他职位的两倍。但是如果你并没有计算机科学专业学位,也没有计划重返校园又该如何呢?纽约编程及设计学院通过提供夜校课程和密集型研讨会的方式正在令学习网络设计和开发变得简单——从该项目毕业后,创建一家全新的网站,或是着手寻找技术相关的职位,并不是什么稀罕的事情。正如创始人杰瑞米?司乃帕(Jeremy Snepar)所言,在当下的数字化经济中,你不能不懂得怎样编程。他将编程看做是一种技术能力,一种能够也应该以更为简单的方式学习的能力,而纽约编程及设计学院正是为那些曾经感慨过“如果我懂怎样编程就好了”的人填补了一个重要的空白。

但是我们波士士顿波士顿咨询集团不认为中国本次改革会导致中国经济不稳定。我们相信中国经济在习主席的领导下会持续高速增长。我们相信上个星期的改革(三中全会)会确保中国经济从现在一直增长到(至少)2020年。根据我们已掌握的资料,我们预测中国经济在未来10年会增加4万亿美金(而书中说是6.4万亿。2012中国GDP为8.3万亿美金)。如果加上印度,亚洲两大国未来的增长总量会达到10万亿美金。在此期间,中产阶级会迅速膨胀,进而增强对经济增长的乐观态度。当然,没有人能完美地预测未来,在我们的近期的一本关于中国和印度经济发展的书中(《Trillion Prize:Captivating the Newly Affluent in China and India》),我们也描述了一些经济增长缓慢的例子。不过总体上我们还是对中国的未来保持乐观态度。
