Welcome to our website. Here we highlight some important upcoming events.
Workshop for Primary & Post Primary Teachers
Khanacademy.org is an innovative website for students and teachers that provides Maths learning videos, exercises, hints and tips in a wide variety of maths topics to suit the needs of students of all abilities in primary (4th -6th) and post primary (all levels) classes.
Teachers can also set challenges and monitor pupil progress via the teacher dashboard. Students can also use the site in their own time, as the website sets challenges for them suitable to their ability level. This allows students to learn at their own pace and in their own time.
This is an introductory workshop that will show you how simple the Khan Academy is to use, how it can add to your list of teaching resources, how your students will benefit and how children can learn at their own pace.
At the introductory workshop you will register with the Khan Academy as a student and a coach. We will also explore the learning opportunities on the website, examine the setting up of class groups and set challenges for individual students.
Please bring earphones and have a Gmail account set up before arriving. Also be aware that you will be sharing your email address with others on the night. If you have an iPad then please feel free to bring it along. The workshop takes place on Monday 24th November from 17:00 - 19:00. You can book your place here.
