Khan Academy & Khan Academy Kids (free app)
Khan Academy offers practice exercises, instructional videos, and a personalized learning dashboard that empower learners to study at their own pace in and outside of the classroom. We tackle math, science, computer programming, history, art history, economics, and more. Our math missions guide learners from kindergarten to calculus using state-of-the-art, adaptive technology that identifies strengths and learning gaps. We've also partnered with institutions like NASA, The Museum of Modern Art, The California Academy of Sciences, and MIT to offer specialized content.
The nonprofit Khan Academy released a free app that it says contains thousands of original activities, books, videos and lessons for children ages 2 to 5. Called Khan Academy Kids, the educational app is “a complete learning experience across multiple subjects” that is designed to adapt over the years as a child grows, according to a statement released by the organization—and parent participation is a “key component” of the experience. Khan Academy Kids’ materials are aligned with both the Common Core State Standards for kindergarten-aged children and the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework for preschool-aged children, according to the organization. They also incorporate social-emotional learning, the statement said.
