CMS Holds Khan Academy NightPublished 11:07pm Saturday, October 20, 2012
Chocowinity Middle School students in Kellyn Wright’s and Brent Rivenbark’s fifth grade math classes were invited out for a preview of the Khan Academy web site and a chance to set up accounts and have hands-on access to the web site. Khan Academy is a free resource developed to help anyone anywhere learn more about math, science and other topics wherever there is access to the Internet. The fifth graders will be using the videos as a part of their math classes where their progress will be tracked by their teachers.
During Family Night, Wright and Rivenbark talked to parents about how they would be using Khan Academy. They also showed parents the site, and had laptops available for parents to register their children, allowing teacher, student and parent access to what the student would be doing through the Academy.
