I’ve now spent two mornings watching 5th graders use Khan Academy in their classroom. The team has been splitting up to observe both 5th and 8th grade classes. It’s been thrilling to see and hear the reactions.
5th Grader: “I got 50,000 energy points last night!”
5th Grader: “I’m already on Adding and Subtracting Negative Numbers, where are you?”
Teacher: “Time’s up”
5th Graders: “Noooooo I want to finish my streak!”
