From seeing a variety of both teachers and students use Khan Academy, we’ve learned that no one strategy fits all: Different teachers in different settings use Khan Academy in different ways to help their students meet their learning goals. Below are a few common models that we have seen math teachers use depending on their students' needs and the resources they have available.

  • Small set of devices 
    Students are in an environment where they have limited access to technology - i.e. a classroom, library, etc. - and not all students can use Khan Academy at the same time.
     

  • Access to tech less than twice per week
    All students can access technology simultaneously - i.e. computer lab, 'mobile cart' day -  but the time available for KA is less than an hour per week. 
     

  • Class of mixed abilities
    Students are able to devote at least two 30-minute sessions to KA per week and span a wide range of ability levels. 
     

  • Class that needs remediation
    Students are able to devote at least two 30-minute sessions to KA per week and typically perform below grade-level.
     

  • Class that is ahead
    Students are able to devote at least two 30-minute sessions to KA per week and typically perform above grade-level.
     

  • Non-math subjects
    Beyond math, we house videos in a variety of subjects, from Art History to Cryptography to Biology.  We also offer a student-friendly, interactive coding platform.
