WOW #13: Caulk up the Cracks with Khan Academy


http://www.khanacademy.org

 

What is the Khan Academy?

·         “With over 1100 videos, it is easily the most exhaustive collection of instruction on the Internet allowing learners to know that they can fill in almost any of their “gaps” with the content on this site. The content is made in digestible 10-20 minute chunks especially purposed for viewing on the computer as opposed to being a longer video of a conventional ‘physical’ lecture.”

 

How Can I Use the Khan Academy Website?

·         Consider giving the web address to your students as a learning resource.  They can use it as reinforcement or even as a primary, content-learning tool.  Then, think of all the other things you could focus on during class :)

 

What Kind of Topics Does Kahn Academy Cover?

·         Currently, you can find videos about

o   Math

o   Science

o   Economics

·         Guess What?  They even solve all 8 math practice tests (432 problems) in “The Official SAT Study Guide” by the College Board in 100+ videos!
