How I Use It
You can use Kahn Academy in so many ways. I think I've only reached the tip of the iceberg and there is still more for me to discover, but thus far I have used it to: show videos that align with content I've taught, have students research specific learning objectives, help students with homework, supplement work for my highest achievers. I have also known students and families who have used it in the summer for "tutoring" or maintenance of content learned previously.
My Take
Fantastic resource, can't believe it is free!
