I heard it on good authority today that Salman Khan will be delivering the closing keynote at Cisco Live. Sal Khan started a non-profit educational organization known as The Khan Academy that utilizes the web as a teaching and delivery tool. The primary goal of the organization is to provide a free, high-quality education to “anyone, anywhere” in the world.
Mr. Khan also authored a book called The One World Schoolhouse: Education Reimagined that outlines his goal for a universally accessible world-class education. This keynote follows other recent closing day performances featuring the personalities of Sir Richard Branson (2013) and Adam and Jamie from Mythbusters (2012).
When the announcement is posted on a Cisco’s web site, I’ll link to it here. Stay tuned for other Cisco Live related announcements.
