A key element of meaningful technology integration is the ability to create personalized learning experiences for each student. In this course, you will learn how to fit personalized learning into your curriculum and explore best practices for facilitating independent work. Using Khan Academy as our delivery tool, we will walk you through the process of setting up classes, monitoring student activity, and establishing routines and expectations for use in your classroom. The latter sections of the course will walk you through analyzing data from Khan and using that data to guide whole group and small group instruction. All participants also receive access to our Khan Academy Teacher's Guide.
The course is designed to be taken over five weeks:
Week 1: Preparing for Launch
Week 2: Launch
Week 3: Monitor and Adjust
Week 4: Diving Into Data
Week 5: Responding to Data
