How I Use It
I have a flipped some lessons in my Algebra classes are flipped. The students watch videos from Khan Academy for homework and do independent practice during class so I can tutor them during class. I have an open email policy, student are allowed to email at any time, I stop answering them after 8PM. Via email, I will suggest a Khan video to help them.
My Take
As teachers, we know that the best classroom experience is the one that provides education daily but supports the student when needed. This is a great tools but a few of my less motivated students watch the video and don't understand why they watched the movies at home while listening to music, playing with the cat, or folding laundry and knowledge from the video did not magically take root.
