Watch genConnect interview Salman Khan, Founder of Khan Academy, on the story behind his online learning center and how parents can participate. “The parents themselves can do it,” he said. “I tell this to every parent I meet: ‘that’s nice if your kids use Khan Academy – it will be valuable – but if you really want to change the culture in your household, you do Khan Academy and you learn mathematics. When your 12-year-old sees that you’re learning trigonometry, they’ll want to learn trigonometry as well.”
