I’ve put together this guide for setting up Khan Academy with your class. This may be useful for some people who are looking for options to support distance learning during school closures.
Khan Academy is a free website that is accessible on all devices: laptops, PCs, chrome books, tablets and mobile phones making it quite versatile.
It provides video tutorials, questions and quizzes which you can set for individuals, groups or your whole class and it also allows you to monitor their progress.
If you want further information on how to set up your class and the things you can do with it, click on the guide below for more information.
Please be aware that this is based on the US Grade system and while I feel the content is suitable there are some differences in the timing of when certain things are introduced and how they are taught. It certainly isn’t a replacement for face to face teaching but it may prove to be very useful to teachers, pupils and parents in the coming weeks and/or months.
We have a few more materials we are working on at the moment to support parents with ideas for maths related activities at home. These will be published on the Highland Council Digital Learning Hub and also on here. This will most likely happen on Thursday.
