Video: Khan Academy

When it comes to providing resources to students, to help them be successful, there are a variety of iPad applications geared just for students. One of my favorite applications that can be used both as part of a flipped classroom, as well as a student at home learning tool, is the Khan Academy application. The Khan Academy application is going to allow students to quickly access videos to teach them whatever subject that they missed in class. Further more, if you're using a flipped class room and students have access to the Khan Academy application, you can assign videos prior to class that students can watch. That way you can move the delivery of content outside of class time and use class time to focus on mastery of content.

When it comes to providing resources to students, to help them be successful, there are a variety of iPad applications geared just for students. One of my favorite applications that can be used both as part of a flipped classroom, as well as a student at home learning tool, is the Khan Academy application.

Further more, if you're using a flipped class room and students have access to the Khan Academy application, you can assign videos prior to class that students can watch. That way you can move the delivery of content outside of class time and use class time to focus on mastery of content.

The application is very simple to navigate. For example, let's say that a student was strugglling with a math concept. In the left hand navigation they can go and click on Math. Let's say this particular student was starting with an algebra concept. They could select Algebra. They could come down to linear equations. And they could even see the why of algebra. How is it that we balance equations, and what's actually happening there? At this time, they can select a video, and just simply start playing the video in the iPad. >> You've got a scale here. And as you see, the scale is >> If you have students that are English language learners. Some of these videos also have captions that'll appear directly below the video.

The students can also choose to view these videos full screen, by clicking the full screen button in the bottom right hand corner. If students take the time to set up a Khan Academy account, they can also log into this application where they can save their spot so they can come back to a video in the exact spot they left off and continue watching it. Also if you create a Khan Academy account, then you the educator can go in and assign videos to your students directly inside of Khan Academy. Please keep in mind that the student having the application on their iPad isn't what makes it valuable. What makes it valuable to the student is their ability to navigate the application and use it. So I recommend taking the time to train your students how to access videos, watch them and even save them.
