How I Use It
I use it to help differentiate my instruction. I have several students that have higher skills in certain subjects, i.e. math, and they can go onto Khan, stick on some headphones on their Chromebook and increase their knowledge base while I am teaching a lower level subject to my whole group. Khan Academy is a great way to flip your class, at least partially.
My Take
Khan academy is truly one of the most innovative sites. I find myself spending more time being astounded by the brilliant lessons and explanations it gives. Khan academy is very user friendly and easily navigable, therefore it is good for many ages.
