Khan Academy

Strengths

Khan Academy has targeted practice questions that can be recommended to both groups and individual students. Teachers can view student profiles in real-time. Parents can signup to receive weekly progress reports on their child. Students can watch lesson-based videos to assist them along the learning path. Khan Academy is also available via smart devices on both the App Store and Google Play Store.

Weaknesses

Some students may need specific skills that are not listed in their grade level. Grades K-2 are all lumped together as "early math".

Role of Technology

Students can access Khan Academy on both the Internet and as a mobile download. In math lessons students can complete problems using an online scratchpad. If a student has problem completing a problem, they can watch the "Stuck?" video which explains problems step-by-step.
