Combine Khan's content with self-discipline system in schools.
Current pedagogy emphasises "child-centered" learning which rightly puts the learner themselves at the centre of the learning experience. When asked who the second most important person in a class is, most people opt for "teacher". This is a mistake. The second most important factor in a class is the kids around that learner. That is, the social dimension. There are thirty centers of learning in the classroom.
I have been a maths teacher for some ten years, and I developed a self-discipline system in my classes which resulted in the emergence of socially responsible behaviour. I call the system Educare. Techniques to improve listening, collaboration, and creative skills emerge from harmonious learning environment.
I am glad Khan appears to be so sociable. His emphasis on the "flip" where videos are homework leaving school time for peer-to-peer education, is superb. That's the bleeding edge right there.
