Happy Labor Day;
Feel free to forward this to anyone and everyone you know, actually I urge you to do so. But only if you find it as valuable as I did.
Please allow me the brief moment to give you, your family, and friends a gift. It is not golf related. (Well in some aspects it
could be with math and geometry I guess) It is purely educational.
This is one of those things that I am sure everyone can use and best of all it is free. I wish Khan Academy would have been available back when I was a kid. Ok, so moving forward with your gift!
Last evening I was watching 60 Minutes and saw an blip about a website called Khan Academy that anyone can use, as matter of fact, quite a few are.
It happens to be an educational tool for everyone. It is called Khan Academy and it’s free. http://www.khanacademy.org I would
highly recommend that you investigate it as wonderful things are taking place because of it.
Here is the short breakdown of it. This first paragraph is directly from their website
Learn almost anything for free.
With a library of over 3,300 videos on everything from arithmetic to physics, finance, and history and hundreds of skills to practice, we’re on a mission to help you learn what you want, when you want, at your own pace.
Here are some quick bullet points for Khan Academy
1. It’s Free for Everyone
2. Students can learn what they want, when they want, and how they want
3. Teachers have access to your children’s results, allowing them to customize their learning as needed, and based upon the
4. Bill and Melinda Gates found Khan Academy so important that they gifted the founder with a $15,000,000
5. 60 Minutes did an piece on them (they must be doing something right)
6. I Personally found this so important, that I am also spreading the word and will be using it myself.
7. This website has to date delivered OVER 185,000,000 lessons to children and teachers worldwide.
As you can see, I have no vested interest in this, it is purely given to you as a resource to assist you and your family. And I am
very happy to share this with you, my only wish is that I would have found out about this sooner.
Here is the website again. http://www.khanacademy.org
I cannot stress this enough that you and your family avail yourself of this great resource. I am sure it will assist and help you and
your children advance further in life.
Oddly enough I think it comes at a very apropos time with the beginning of the school year. I hope you find good use of this
valuable resource. At a minimum, you should at least go take a look at Khan Academy.
Happy Golfing and have a great day.
