How I Use It
I use this product to assign lessons to students in microeconomics. It work perfectly and is well organized by topics and is good for scaffolding.
My Take
I really love Khan Academy as a teaching tool. It serves as a supplemental material that will give students as well as teachers additional resources for a topic or subject area. I love that students can be self-directed in their learning. For example in math it guides student well and it uses different colors to explain each step so students can know how they arrive at that point. As teachers, it is a good tool to re-teach a concept and may give us a better way to explain or present a concept in the classroom.
