Teacher Review for Khan Academy

Khan Academy is a great tool in learning the concepts of various topics. I found that during my years as a student in high school and in middle school Khan Academy helped with a lot of concepts that I had a hard time with.

How I Use It
I would not use it during my teaching. However, I would use Khan Academy as an extra resource for students to look at because the teaching that is given on this website could be a resource that would resolve any problems students would have for a specific topic. Khan Academy has both videos and articles that help students in learning the topic. Additionally, there are multiple example quizzes that engage students to show what they have learned from watching the video or reading the article.
My Take
My overall opinion about this teaching tool is great. I say great because this is a teaching tool that gives students an extra resource for them to expand their knowledge. It would not be an ideal resource for educators to use during class. I personally think during class, there should be more interaction between teachers students for students to be more engaged in the topic or concept that the teacher is teaching. However, Khan Academy would be a great resource for students to engage in after-school studies.
