In early October, the School Implementations team headed to Boise, Idaho to deliver a workshop to 250 teachers. The 2-day teacher workshop was generously sponsored by the J.A & Kathryn Albertson Foundation. See what the teachers had to say during the second day of the workshop:
The workshop carried an enthusiastic energy throughout both days as teachers discussed their visions of student-centered, self-paced classrooms, learned how to navigate the various data reports and features of our site, and created tactical plans tailored for their own classrooms. Many teachers started using Khan Academy with their students the very next school day, and we saw the number of site visits more than double in the state of Idaho after the workshop!
We were honored to work with such a fantastic group of teachers and a foundation that offered every support imaginable. Soon we’ll be visiting Boston with the Lynch Foundation and Miami with the Morgridge Family Foundation. We’re excited to meet more teachers across the country and to be working with great foundations!
