Chris Howell's Third Grade Classroom has been exploring the use of Khan Academy with her students. Using a combination of the computer lab and the classroom iPads, she has connected her students to the prescriptive math tools to support her lessons on fraction. I had the opportunity to stop by and check it out. I really enjoyed visiting with the class and seeing the culture of students helping students get more comfortable with the tech tools. Thanks for the invite.
