SPRING 2013 - ESD 113 - MATH & SCIENCE IN THE CLASSROOM

KAHN ACADEMY / ROBOTICS / ROBOTICS BLASTOFF 2013!

Kahn Academy

Khan Academy is so much more than mathematics' videos. Discover the secret for students needing mathematics improvement and how a teacher, librarian, volunteer, or paraprofessional may assist students in enrolling in a course of study that will keep them engaged and moving forward as needed or filling in the holes that may exist in their learning.


1st hour- Introductions, welcome, and overview. 2nd hour - Review the power of the analytics behind Khan academy. Learn how to track students and assist them with their work. Additional hour will be on your own and then reporting back in a webinar on your successes, challenges and plans for the future.
