Khan Academy and Flipping from Ted Talks

My colleague, Jeff Feinstein, sent me this link to the "Ted Talk" video by an early promoter of "flipping the classroom." Here's the blurb from the you tube site: "Salman Khan talks about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects. He shows the power of interactive exercises, and calls for teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script -- give students video lectures to watch at home, and do "homework" in the classroom with the teacher available to help."
