The One World School House Presentation by Dane cummings

Khan, Salman. The One World Schoolhouse: A New Approach to Teaching and Learning. Hachette/Oct: n.p., 2012. Print.

"Don’t limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time."

The story, written by Salman Khan, tells about the life of the creator of one of the most successful online learning academies. The beginning of this school literally came to fruition simply by seeing the need in his cousin.

Learning can take place anywhere at anytime. Nadia was fortunate to have a cousin who took an interest in her academics. The beginning of the Academy simply started by his tutoring Nadia in math.

Learning should always be fun, exciting, and interesting. If a teacher cannot express that excitement to students; then, they should look for a different approach. I hope to make my students excited about learning by sharing my experiences with them.

The theory behind One World Schoolhouse seems to be quite simple. Students learn in various manners whether it be visual, auditory, or kinesthetic. Salman figured out a way to appeal to every time of learner through something as simple as You Tube Videos. He broke down how every part of learning occurs.

“For a memory to persist, the incoming information must be thoroughly and deeply processed. This is accomplished by attending to the information and associating it meaningfully and systematically with knowledge already well established in memory." To me, this says reinforcement. I cannot learn and retain what I have learned unless I reinforce it by some means whether that be note cards or notes.

My take on the first part of this book is that learning occurs in different manners. There are many theories which have been produced over the years by educators who think they have it mastered. To me, each teacher has to figure out what works for them and their students. Salman figured out a way that works. It worked for him. The book is interesting and full of information that I can see utilizing in my future as an educator
