The Khan Lab School has been founded to develop fully empowered future citizens by pioneering models that put the learner at the center of the education experience. With this in mind we hope to develop and test new types of learning experiences and practices that can be shared for free with the world.

The first school will be scaled in Silicon Valley and the vision inter alia is to create a global network of Khan Lab Schools in collaboration with Khan Academy. This challenge is at the intersection of education and technology encompassing a great character of social responsibility and is an exciting start-up experience in Silicon Valley. 

The learning design is based with the student in the center on four interdisciplinary elements including Approaches to Learning (ATL), Architecture of Learning (AOL), Art of Teaching (AOT) and Academic and Character Outcomes (ACO). 

The main focus is to apply content in context leveraging project based, blended and personalized learning within a mastery based framework. 

In this breakout session we compare the KLS vision with the IB framework and looking at the parallels and opportunities.
