Khan Academy

As a library media specialist, it is important for me to keep up to date with current technology and trends.  I use what I learn to help the teachers and students in my building.  I recently learned about an awesome website called Khan Academy and have been sharing it with teachers at my school.  This website has over 3,000 educational videos that cover subjects such as math, social studies, and even economics.  Students, or anyone really, can watch these videos, for free, and then practice skills at their own speed.

This site is supported by Bill Gates and is starting to get a lot of attention in classrooms across the country.  The site says that its mission is to "help you learn what you want, when you want, at your own pace."  To learn more about Khan Academy, read the article "How Khan Academy is Changing the Rules of Education."
