​Khan Academy Believes You Can Learn Anything

Aug 19, 2014

#YOUKHANLEARNANYTHING: On August 19, Khan Academy launched its #youcanlearnanything campaign, designed to encourage lifelong learning and acknowledge the role of struggling in skill development. As part of the campaign, Khan Academy students can now track progress across different subjects through a dashboard. Users can also find discussion guides and “growth-mindset interventions,” including explanations of the theory from founder Salman Khan and inspirational stories from celebrities like John Legend.

The “growth mindset” campaign comes on the heels of a PERTS (Project for Education Research that Scales) study in collaboration with Khan Academy. The results showed a growth (rather than fixed) mindset about learning raises a student’s academic performance.
