Need math on your iOS device? Khan Academy has arrived.

Micah McTaggart's curator insight, May 24, 2017 10:45 PM
Khan Academy is a great online maths learning tool. The fact that it is now on iPads is even better. These types of lessons could be used by students seeking some extra assistance with some math problems or by students who want to challenge themselves to try even harder work. 

Students can do this independently and at their own pace, it totally transforms the learning experience, taking it out of the traditional classroom environment and makes learning accessible to any student, anytime, anywhere. This could really help a teacher trying to implement a SAMR model of teaching into their classroom

"Khan Academy videos also work for a variety of reasons..Each of Khan’s video’s (particularly the first ones) answer the question “How do I …?”

Becky Roehrs's insight:

Instructors in community colleges teaching health tech or computer programming courses have just enough time to do something similar to what Khan Academy does: 1) Demo a skill while students do the same/similar actions; 2) mentor students while students apply the skill to a real-world problem.
