In this webinar recap, we’ll explore what Khanmigo, Khan Academy’s AI tool for K-12 US teachers, can do to make educator’s time better spent. This recap will cover three of the features that make this tool valuable, and how they can be used to advance the teaching journey. We reviewed these insights last week at our live virtual event for educators. If you missed last week’s event and want to view the recording, you may do so right here:

Recap of Feature 1: Data
The first feature we covered was the Class Snapshot. This feature gives teachers a quick overview of their class’s weekly progress on Khan Academy. The Class Snapshot includes critical data points such as Learning Time, Assignments, Skills, and Course Mastery. Teachers can spot trends and areas needing attention by using this tool. It’s an efficient method for identifying areas of weakness in students that need extra support, and those who could use a high five. For example, we demonstrated how a teacher can ask for a list of students who should be celebrated for their growth.
Recap of Feature 2: Prep
The second feature we explored was Khanmigo’s ability to accelerate teacher’s prep time. Khanmigo can assist teachers in various aspects of their preparation, from refreshing a brand new teacher’s knowledge about their subject, to designing lesson hooks that make new concepts stick. With Khanmigo’s suite of tools, teachers can create warm-up activities that get students excited, draft exit ticket questions, and co-create rubrics for evaluating students’ work- including exemplars to save time grading. This feature allows teachers to focus on delivering quality education to students and less on creating materials that they can derive from Khanmigo.
Recap of Feature 3: Adapt
Finally, we discussed how Khanmigo can clarify content based on specific needs. Khanmigo is an AI that can generate responses and adjust them based on the teacher’s preferences. For example, teachers can ask Khanmigo to simplify or expand its responses, publish responses at a different reading level, or tailor them to suit their preferences. This highly personalized feature enables teachers to customize their learning materials, which can have a profound impact on students’ learning outcomes.
Join us for our next webinar
We learned last week about some of the ways teachers can more efficiently manage their time, prepare custom materials, and attend to their students’ unique needs with Khanmigo. At Khan Academy, we believe the future of education is bright with the integration of AI, and we are excited to be at the forefront of that innovation.
So, we are excited to announce the second webinar in our series! Join us live on October 11th for our next webinar where we will:
- Show you how educators can co-create lesson plans with Khanmigo.
- Share what Khanmigo can do when districts enable the feature for both teachers and students.
- Provide valuable insights and practical examples of how Khanmigo can enhance the teaching and learning experience.
We invite all educators to sign up for our Khanmigo in Your Classroom webinar and join us for this informative session.
