I’m interested in exploring the use of the Khan Academy with students. I’ve put together a 10-minute video to provide you the skinny on what it’s all about.
- There are YouTube videos. Lots of them. This is how it all started.
- There are now practice activities in Math. They’re well done.
- Students and teachers (called Coaches) can monitor student progress.
I’m planning for some after-school workshops later in 2013 in using Khan as a tech integration course. But why wait? If you’re interested in putting a small group of students in now, contact me via e-mail. Here are some of the available units:
- area, perimeter, volume
- conic sections
- telling time
- absolute value
- quadratic functions
To learn more about Khan directly, this page explains things nicely.
