[liberationtech] We can expect a stream of neat new things from Khan Academy

If you are already a fan of Khan Academy, here is some good news. This job announcement points to 
new free learning products that Khan Academy will be introducing in the coming months and years.

You might even think about starting a Khan Academy Club at your school, library, community center, etc. 
The purpose of the club would be to explore new Khan Academy products and help explain their value to your larger community. I have a hunch the new products will be more interactive than explanatory videos -- which themselves 
are valuable. 


I'm generally on board with Khan Academy -- although I reserve the right to explain how and why I think they could be doing things better, too. Over the years there have been some thoughtful reservations expressed about Khan Academy. 
Some of those reservations are important to keep in mind.

btw, I'm hoping Freerice.com might similarly introduce variations and new developments. I haven't seen much change at Freerice.com over the past few years. When you have a good idea, you need to run with it.
