How I Use It
I like to use Khan Academy for supplementary material or to provide students with another resource. I certainly would not suggest replacing curriculum with Khan Academy, but I do feel it is a great supplementary resource. I have some students at various levels pulled from my classroom working with paras. Khan Academy has served as a great resource to not only support the students, but the paras as well as it may have been awhile since they have learned various materials.
My Take
This is great to have an option to see other videos and hear material explained in a different way. I also like the option to do practice problems and give students feedback. While I mainly use my own videos in my class, Khan Academy is a great resource for supplemental material.
