So if a class begins to implement K.A. in their classroom. they can expect to have a much better, personal teaching experience.  That, however, isn’t where the benefits end though.

Clearly, there is an aspect of savings, most notably the ratio of teachers’ wages’ to actual valuable teaching given out.  Less and less money is spent on correcting tests, etc. (as specified in the last post) and teachers’ time in the classroom is much more effective.  This could have potential long term savings for the education sector, there would be less paying for unnecessary time doing activities that could be handled by the Khan Academy system itself.

Another advantage is that it allows children, at an earlier age, to be computer competent.  With the time each day students spend completing exercises at home, they would almost definitely be more able to handle easy-to-moderate tasks on their computers.  As well as this, the time spent at computers could ignite an interest in computers themselves.  An interest in web-design, for example, could be another potential advantage of incorporating K.A..

The list goes on and on from this, and I could go on about how it is very advantageous, but I believe that’s enough just for now…
