Khan Academy staff conduct a limited number of workshops every year, but the vast majority of KA workshops are organized and led by educators just like you. If you’ve used Khan Academy with your students and are eager to share your enthusiasm with other teachers, we encourage you to host your own workshop. To help you, we’ve created worksheets and an example workshop structure.

When Khan Academy staff train teachers who are brand-new to our site, we try to schedule a full-day session lasting about six hours. If you have less time, you can divide the workshop into multiple sessions or cover only the topics that are most relevant to you and your team. Once you’ve hosted your own workshop, let us know how it went by posting at the bottom of this article!

Example workshop structure

Introduction

  • Goal: set the tone for the workshop and introduce Khan Academy in basic terms
  • Suggested time: 30 minutes or less
  • No worksheets needed

We suggest kicking off your training with a fun activity and a quick presentation. Our favorite activity is "co-creating a drawing," which you can see in the video below.  

We have lots of sample presentations here. You may also want to outline the philosophy that drives Khan Academy's work in schools.

2) Scavenger hunt

  • Goal: give teachers time to explore the site
  • Suggested time: 60 minutes or more
  • Download worksheets here.

The best way for teachers to understand what it’s like to use Khan Academy is to experience the site for themselves, both as a student and as a teacher. Some tech-savvy teachers go through our entire scavenger hunt in 30 minutes, while others take up to two hours.

3) Implementation planning

  • Goal: help teachers think through how they can use Khan Academy in their classrooms
  • Suggested time: 60 minutes or more
  • Download worksheets here.

It’s critical that teachers identify the purpose KA will serve in their classrooms, figure out how it can support their curricula, and see examples of how other teachers have used the site. These worksheets will also help teachers determine whether missions are appropriate for their classrooms.

4) Discuss “bonus topics”

Choose topics that are relevant to the entire group, or allow individual teachers to pick the topics that interest them most.

Here's a preview of all the worksheets for the workshop.
