This is something that we started once we started seeing mass school closures and it's really a way for all of us to stay connected. Obviously Khan Academy as a not-for-profit with a mission of providing free world-class education for anyone anywhere. Over the last many years we've been building resources, that we've saw students use both outside of school and inside of school with teachers. And we could've never foreseen this crisis, but when it started happening we realized given our mission, it's our duty to step up in any way possible to support you the student, the teacher and the parent. And so we've been putting out webinars to help parents and teachers get set up. We've been issuing daily schedules, we just issued some learning plans last week and we also thought it'd be fun to have something like this, just a way to stay connected and times with social distancing and talk about interesting subjects. It might be related to Khan Academy. It might be education generally, it might be just how do we make... How do we navigate this crisis that we're going through. I will give my the plug that I give every day, remind everyone that we are supported through philanthropic donations from folks like yourself. So if you're in a position to please think about donating, I want to give a special shout out to several corporations who've stepped up in the last few weeks. Bank of America stepped up that first weekend when it was clear that we were gonna have the school closings, Google.org, AT&T, Novartis, if any of you represent corporations please reach out to us. We were running a deficit even before this crisis and our costs have gone up since then and there's all sorts of things we wanna do and accelerate forward but we're only going to be able to do it if we're able to get more support. And thank you for the many thousands of people who've donated over the last few weeks. It all makes a difference and allows us to accelerate our work. So the focus of today, I have a very fun guest who's a close friend of mine and also does very important work in the world. We have Jim Steyer from Common Sense Media, hi Jim. - Hi Sal and great to be here and by the way, you should give money to Khan Academy it is a fabulous organization and its tires are donors. We're a not-for-profit but there's nobody better than Sal Khan Academy. He's right about that. - I did not tell Jim to say that, but that's why we are close friends he knows. So first one on this conversation, I'm gonna ask you a few questions about Common Sense Media generally and maybe some of the things that we're doing together and how we're navigating the crisis. But if anyone has questions, feel free to go on YouTube and Facebook and our team members will surface questions if you have questions for Jim about his work at Common Sense Media or any questions for me as well. But Jim, maybe a good place to start. Tell folks what Common Sense Media is and why you started it. Okay, so we are a nonprofit organization and really the leading kids media and advocacy organization in the U S. I started it cause I'm a former school teacher. And at Stanford prof who cares a ton about really educating families and kids in general but also about the impact of media and technology on their lives. I started at 15 years ago. We do three things. We rate, educate and advocate. So for folks out there in the audience who know us, we've made every movie TV, video game, website, book, music, you name it Common Sense rates it and gives you information so parents can make better choices for their kids. The educate part of our work is we created the field of digital citizenship, digital literacy. So we have a curriculum in most of the schools in the United States about the safe, ethical, responsible use of media and technology at home and in the classroom. And then finally, we're a leading child advocacy group that advocates for everything like everybody having Wi-Fi and broadband. Every student in America having access to Khan Academy, these kinds of resources and also on issues like education and healthcare and all these issues that matter to kids and families who are in the U S so a big nonprofit just like Khan Academy and a huge fan of Khan Academy and Sal. - We're fans of you and all of the work y'all do as well. And so to make it tangible for a lot of folks, I use Common Sense Media with my own family when I'm just trying to find good stuff for them. We're doing movie nights once a week now with all the social distancing and we turn to Common Sense Media a lot for that. What are some of the things, and I know we have some stuff going on together as well, but where's... what were y'all focused on before this crisis hit and how has that evolved to some degree since then? - Okay, great question Sal. So basically before the crisis hit we had this big consumer platform, but 100 million people on it trying to figure out what movies to watch for their kids on movie night or what video games were appropriate for a 12 year old et cetera. And we were in most of the schools in the U S basically working with teachers and educators saying, here's how to use the internet. Here's how to use cell phones and social media in a really responsible way. And when this crisis hit, one of the first things we thought was like wow we need to work with Khan Academy. But we also thought wouldn't it be great to create one central hub where schools could go and where families could go get fined at one click of a button. The best educational resources could deal with the COVID-19 crisis. So along with the support of folks like Khan Academy, we created Wide Open School.org, which is this new platform our colleagues at Amplify helped build the platform. And then honestly, we link to the best content out there, Khan Academy, national geographic, Sesame street, et cetera. And the idea was make it really easy for parents and students who are at home and we're doing distance learning and also for schools around the United States to have one central place where they could get the content they wanted and actually to do homeschooling. And as you mentioned, Sal, having a daily schedule and you there is really important cause everybody's at home right now and trying to do learning from home and whether they're on Khan Academy or Wide Open School, it's just how we're just trying to help everybody learn from home and we think this is gonna be changing the nature of education long-term. Just like Khan Academy changed the nature of education when Sal founded Khan Academy. - Well, what's your sense, a lot of questions. I'm having a lot of conversations these days obviously about the whole virus generally, but how do you think this is going to play out over the next several weeks or months, especially in relation to school and kids maybe generally speaking? - I actually think that ultimately we're gonna listen and we're here in California, Sal. So we've had a governor really step forward and mayors and stuff. I think we're gonna be sad to say, I think we're gonna be learning from home for the rest of the school year for sure. And I think that even for the rest of 2020 much of learning is gonna be online much more than normal. And therefore everybody out there is gonna need to be able to access the internet is gonna be able to access resources like Khan Academy. And so I think this is gonna last longer than normal and I think it's really important for all of us. I have four children, Sal I know you're a doubting dad to. I think we have to explain to our kids that we're gonna be at home, it's good family time, but we're gonna need to figure out how to do school. Also how to take breaks and get exercise and not sit in front of a screen all day long. So I think this is gonna last longer than we think. I think for example, it's gonna probably affect summers and a lot of us are gonna probably do some more at home than we were planning on. I know my kids who are a little older than your kids Sal, they are in college and grad school and they are taking their classes at home and I... their summer jobs have changed. So I sad to say, I think we're gonna have to figure out how to work with this over the four months. I don't think it's just gonna be weeks. I think it'll be a few months to be honest. Cause of the virus. - Yeah, and we're getting some comments off of YouTube Tuzeta Roro says, I have been using this with my kids. I think they're referring to either Common Sense or Wide Open School. And I've been using this with my kids this week and it helps me feel less guilty about screen time. Actually that's an interesting issue. How do you think about coping with screen-time guilt? I'm happy to give my own views on that. Although I'm conflicted. What are your thoughts about that as a parent and an expert? - So I actually, I'd love to hear what you think you Sal as parent and an expert. So definitely you're gonna have more screen time right now. There's just no question because literally my kids are going to school online right now, so they're going to be in front of a screen more than they are. And as Common Sense where we're the leading spokespeople on this issue about balance and moderation when it comes to screen time. And by the way, it's a really important message, but I think that we have to understand these are unique circumstances. So I do think that we should let up on some of the hard and fast rules we want our kids going to school doing online learning. We want them using Khan Academy resources.
