We just kicked off the first of a summer of workshops that focus on how educators can leverage Khan Academy’s tools for personalized, mastery-based, and interactive learning in their classrooms.
The most popular parts of the day included diving into the tools Khan Academy offers, as well as hearing from teachers who have been using KA - their biggest challenges and triumphs. One attendee commented, “It was great to hear that there is no one right way to implement, that it was an iterative process, and to see that each teacher had their own style and way to use Khan Academy in the classroom.” For more details, check out these case studies.
We were infused with the enthusiasm of so many educators looking to use Khan Academy, but wanted to share a note that one participant sent to our team:
Dear Khan [Academy] Team,Although I stopped to thank Maureen on Tuesday, I wanted to take a minute to thank you all for offering such a productive seminar this week. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop for educators, and I came away feeling better equipped to expand my use of Khan Academy with my students, as well as answer concerns I’ve heard from colleagues. I am looking forward to the fall with excitement, ready to experiment a bit as I work to strengthen the math foundation of each of my students. I’m so glad I happened to be in the Bay area at such an opportune time, and I want you all to know how much I appreciated the opportunity to take part in the workshop.Sincerely,Carolyn S.MathematicsOregon
