This Spring, Khan Academy is bringing teachers Brain Training—a fun, engaging, and interactive assignments program to help get students motivated to participate and finish the school year on top! Brain Training is a free program based on the assignments teachers already create weekly, aligning with the needs of their students. Brain Training triggers student excitement, and teachers can easily check assignment progress toward completion in the Teacher Dashboard.
Students will have a blast celebrating their progress with assignment completion while our brain mascot, Pinky, climbs the mountain in the progress tracker. With Brain Training, teachers have a handy, free, and easy-to-use assignments tool to keep students enlivened as they head to summer break!
When will Brain Training be available?
Brain Training will run from April 12 through May 28. Check your Teacher Dashboard on Monday, April 12 to see your progress tracker:
How Brain Training works
Teachers with Khan Academy are automatically enrolled! No sign up required. The only thing teachers have to do is continue to create assignments, and then check the progress tracker for completion. That’s it! Teachers with students that reach level eight are rockstars and will receive some Khan Academy swag as a special thanks for rallying their troops and a job well done!
Get started in a pinch:
Step 2: Add your school in your Teacher Dashboard
Step 3: Add your students
Step 4: Create assignments and assign to students
Step 5: Check student progress in your Class Dashboard
To advance to the next level, you only need four assignments completed per student. Cheer them on to the finish line!
Khan Academy is happy to show our support to teachers for all of their hard work, especially during this particularly challenging and unforeseen time. As a special thanks, teachers that get their students to level eight will have a chance to receive a Khan Academy embroidered beach towel and an embroidered laptop sleeve—just in time for the summer and beyond! The only action teachers need to take is to be active in the Teacher Dashboard checking progress toward assignment completion at each level.
