David Hu at TEDx Guatemala

Mon, 20 Aug 2012 17:36:00

Keep Calm and Learn SomethingOur awesome intern David Hu traveled to Guatemala this past weekend to give a TEDx talk about Khan Academy and the work he’s done here on our learning proficiency model.

Watch the video of his talk at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oA0ws8rwd_c

David successfully navigated three taxis in a mad dash to the airport, crossing San Francisco at rush hour; a multi-hour surprise Q&A session by the faculty of Universidad Francisco Marroquín in Guatemala City; staying up all night to rewrite his presentation; and learning that in Guatemala, when a woman takes your arms and brings you close to kiss you, she’s just going for your cheek and you don’t have to bolt in fear.

Teach all the humans! Teach all the things!
