Khan Academy

Placing this link to a Khan Academy blog post under the mathematics is probably the most appropriate location due to the vast amount of videos pertaining to the subject. This is a reminder to teachers in East Noble that you may not have to do near as much work trying to "flip the classroom" with resources available such as these.

I have a couple of ideas of how Khan could be a great resource for teachers.

  1. A resource for meeting the needs of students that are above or below grade level. These materials could easily be emailed or posted on Edmodo within small groups of students as supplemental materials. This would allow students to move at a more appropriate pace.

  2. A resource for spiraling. Students could always find videos to match the skills of which they need a refresher.

This is available on the iPod and iPad as an application. If your students are using laptops, just use the Khan Academy website.
