Salman Khan and Montessori

Salman Khan, the educator and founder of Khan Academy, is also a supporter of the Montessori method.

…the whole principle of Montessori is students learn by exploration, play, they learn at their own time and pace, they have mixed age. And mixed age allows older students to mentor, and younger students to get that mentorship.
