The app your Baby Shark will love

Vie, 2019-02-08 10:50

Good news! Khan Academy Kids, our educational app for children ages two to six, is now available  for Android devices. You can get them at Google Play and the Amazon Appstore.

With thousands of personalized, interactive activities—like counting with Baby Shark from Super Simple Songs—books, and educational videos, we think Khan Academy Kids is an app that parents will love and kids will love to use!

Khan Academy Kids takes a holistic approach to learning by tackling early literacy, language, and math while also encouraging creativity and social-emotional skills. We’ve been getting terrific feedback from parents and critics alike. Common Sense media gave us a  5-star review, we received the Parent’s Choice Gold Award from Parents’ Choice Foundation, and we won an Editor’s Choice Award from Children’s Technology Review.

And, yes, the app is 100% free—no ads, no paywall, and no strings.

You make all the difference

It’s been quite a year at Khan Academy! From the launch of our Khan Kids app for little learners and LearnStorm growing to cover three countries—the United States, Brazil, and Mexico—to the introduction of our new mastery learning features, we have made important strides toward providing a free, world-class education to everyone, everywhere. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you.

Your support enables millions of people from all around the world to access the educational resources they need to reach their full potential, but there are many more learners we need to reach.

  • 265 million children around the world lack access to school.*
  • 617 million lack basic math and literacy skills.*
  • In the US, 60% of eighth grade students are not proficient in math.†

Fewer than half of low-income four-year-olds are enrolled in a high-quality preschool.‡

We know that Khan Academy can transform classrooms and lives. When students use Khan Academy for at least 30 minutes a week they are two times more likely than their non-Khan Academy-using peers to meet grade-level standards in math.§ Data shows that using Khan Academy’s free Official SAT Prep for 20 hours is associated with an average score gain of 115 points.

A great education is life changing, and—since we’re a nonprofit—your donations make all the difference. With your support, we’re able to hire teachers, engineers, and designers, cover rent, and pay for tech that brings Khan Academy to learners worldwide. And, we get to keep Khan Academy free.

There’s still more work for us to do, and with your help we’ll get there. If you haven’t donated yet, please consider giving a little or a lot by visiting khanacademy.org/donate today.

From all of us—thank you!

A successful 2018 Language Advocate convention

Lun, 2018-11-05 11:43

We just wrapped up our third annual Language Advocate convention, where we were joined by 30 Language Advocates representing 20 languages—and a whopping 14 different alphabets!

Khan Academy staff and Language Advocates exchanged best practices on everything from marketing and  fundraising to effectively partnering with schools using Khan Academy in the classroom. Language Advocates also shared translation tips and tools with each other and presented to the entire Khan Academy staff about their efforts to make Khan Academy available around the world. Last but certainly not least, each Language Advocate brought a tasty treat from their home country so everyone could share in a delicious, international buffet.

Language Advocates work hard to make sure Khan Academy content isn’t just translated into different languages but made applicable to each country’s local context. For example, an English math problem about a game of baseball may turn into a problem about a game of soccer in Portuguese or cricket in Hindi. A major focus of the convention was the 2019 goal of creating fully localized curricula for many countries. Just as students and teachers in the United States can currently find AP courses on Khan Academy, students and teachers in other countries will be able to find courses that are aligned to their own national curricula.

Finally, Language Advocates met with Sal to discuss the future of Khan Academy, which led to both a great conversation and a fun livestream of the team.

Here’s to continuing to work together to making a free, world-class education available to everyone, everywhere, in every language!
