How I Use It
I have seen Khan academy used as a station in a classroom to help reinforce learning. The teacher would do a mini lesson and then have stations around the room. One station for enrichment, one station that the teacher lead, a Khan academy station to reinforce the lesson.
My Take
Im not a big fan of Khan Academy as the main way to educate students, but as a secondary resource I think its great. Content is important, which this website offers, unfortunately most educators just deliver content. Our students need more than content, which I know the developer of this website supports. I would love to see something similar but geared towards project based learning.
