I have faithfully taken my students to computer lab once a week with every class, but it wasn’t integrated into my other curriculum. They practiced skills that were only loosely connected, like learning to type or basic math facts practice. Khan Academy was the first tool to make it easy to coordinate with California State Standards and the Common Core Standards by grade. Khan Academy has videos showing how to do the different math processes and practice exercises set in a game format. The site has math subjects up to calculus, finance, and some science topics. The science tends to be high school level content. The flipped classroom is easy to start using Khan Academy, for us novices in the production of videos or camera shy. You can take a look at the site http://www.khanacademy.org/.
