Princess of Asturias Award (Salman Khan)

This is the voice of Gustavo Suárez Pertierra when he gave the Princess of Cooperation Award 2019 to the American engineer and mathematician Salman Khan.

The mathematician, electrical and computer science engineer, Salman Khan, was awarded on Wednesday with the Princess of Asturias Award for International Cooperation. He has emerged as the ‘master of the world’ thanks to his pedagogical capacity, his foresight and an innovative method based on his motto “You only have to know one thing: you can learn anything”.

Sixty million users in 190 countries today attest to the usefulness of the free online educational platform that Khan launched in 2008 from his family home in Silicon Valey with his own savings. Two years after starting his adventure, he had already obtained the support of large companies, such as Google, and of philanthropists such as the Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim or Bill Gates, who contributed one and a half million euros to this project after checking with his own son the excellences of the Khan method.

Since the Khan Academy, which currently has some 20,000 videos of science, history or grammar, among many other disciplines, which have been viewed more than 1,400 million times. It has helped millions of people to graduate in some discipline or improve their grades and always starting from that they must be free and accessible for all. This training project and its “innovative pedagogical vision” to which it says to dedicate itself with passion, have also served for the jury of the Princess of International Cooperation 2019 Award to grant this award.
