  • - Hello, welcome.

  • We are so glad to have several of you,

  • a few hundred already, here today,

  • and really appreciate your time.

  • My name is Dave Herron.

  • I work on our team that supports teachers

  • and school districts at Khan Academy, and I am joined today,

  • about two miles away, from her home in San Francisco,

  • by my colleague Vicki Lang,

  • who is a learning scientist on our team.

  • So hello, Vicki.

  • And I'm also joined by my colleague Dan,

  • who helps lead our marketing team

  • from San Mateo, California.

  • Hi, Dan, and he will help actually, me,

  • surfacing some of your questions all throughout the webinar,

  • and we'll leave the last few minutes of the webinar

  • to answer as many as we can.

  • And so you'll see a question tab on the GoToWebinar panel,

  • and if this is your first webinar with us,

  • then go ahead and take a look at that,

  • and at any moment when a question pops into your head,

  • please put that in there so that we can do our best

  • to answer as many as possible.

  • We're here to spend the next 30 minutes or so

  • on the topic you should be seeing on your screen.

  • Some of you may have found yourself over the last

  • four or five, six weeks, maybe,

  • suddenly as homeschool teachers, in addition to

  • all the other responsibilities you're balancing.

  • We know it is a whole lot to juggle.

  • Here at Khan Academy, we have created daily schedules

  • and now weekly math learning plans

  • to try to support you as you support your kids

  • so that they can stay on track as much as possible

  • in their math courses, as well as other courses,

  • that they may be missing in school.

  • And so we're here to break down these plans for you,

  • and I wanna thank, before we move on,

  • some of the key supporters who have been providing support

  • to Khan Academy so that we could increase

  • the amount of support we're providing throughout this time.

  • And you'll see those names there on the screen.

  • Our main goal is to break down the plans for you,

  • explain all the ins and outs

  • of these weekly math learning plans, and again,

  • answer as many of your questions as possible.

  • And before we move on, I'm going to start a poll

  • to see how familiar this audience is

  • with the learning plans that we're talking about.

  • So take the next few seconds,

  • once it pops up on your screen,

  • to tell us what best represents your familiarity.

  • Are you I've never seen them before,

  • I'm here to learn, or I've seen them,

  • but I have not used them with my kids,

  • or finally, I have started using them already with my kids.

  • We'll take about 10 more seconds.

  • If you haven't yet, fill in your vote.

  • Three, two, one, about two-thirds of you

  • have submitted your vote, and here's where we're at.

  • Over half of you have never seen

  • these learning plans before, so thank you

  • for joining despite not having that past familiarity.

  • We'll walk you through how to find them.

  • And then the others, about a quarter, have seen them,

  • but haven't started using them,

  • and we do have some maybe intermediate or advanced users

  • who have already started using them with your kids.

  • We'll be really appreciative of any feedback

  • or questions that you have since you're already

  • started using them, and we have a survey

  • at the end of the webinar if you wanna give us more advice

  • on how we can improve them and move forward.

  • So given that over half of you have never seen them before,

  • let's start with a pretty basic question.

  • I'll take this one, Vicki.

  • How do I even find the learning plans to begin with?

  • If you go to our website at khanacademy.org,

  • on the very home page, which you should see an example of

  • on the screen now, there will be a blue banner at the top.

  • That links you to some of our remote learning resources.

  • And if you click that link, you'll be brought

  • to that page that's shown on the right side of the screen,

  • where one of the main options are the weekly learning plans.

  • That will give you access to all of the learning plans

  • that we've created so far.

  • We have them at many different grade levels for math,

  • and we recently published a high school biology

  • learning plan as well.

  • They are all in a format that's very easy to print

  • if you do have a printer accessible for you.

  • We know the learning plans for kids are often helpful

  • to have in print form, and so when you open it,

  • you may notice the formatting looks different

  • than the regular Word document,

  • but that makes it easy if you press control-P

  • or whatever the shortcut is

  • on your computer to print those out.

  • You might be multi-tasking right now

  • and following those steps to access the learning plans,

  • and just those two other quick reminders.

  • I should've mentioned this right at the beginning,

  • but there is a copy of these slides

  • available to download as a PDF within the browser

  • that you have available, and then second,

  • we're recording the webinar,

  • and we'll send you a copy of the recording soon after,

  • within a few hours after the conclusion.

  • Let's move on, though.

  • Who are the plans for?

  • What's the big goal or idea behind these plans, Vicki?

  • - Well, as you said, they're for students

  • from 3rd grade through high school for mathematics,

  • and then we also have one for high school biology,

  • and they're really for providing a clear goal

  • for what to work on week to week.

  • We know that it's great to set a large goal

  • of being ready for next year when school starts again,

  • and it can also be really helpful in reaching that goal

  • to break it down into smaller steps.

  • We're breaking that goal down

  • into week-by-week-by-week steps to get you ready,

  • or your child ready for next year.

  • On the next slide we can see that the real audience

  • for this is folks who's districts maybe

  • have not provided enough support,

  • or you're looking for something a little bit beyond

  • what your district has provided for you.

  • This is an overwhelming time for school districts.

  • What they've been able to provide has really varied,

  • and we wanna make sure that everybody

  • has access to a plan that they can use

  • to make sure that your kiddos

  • are ready for school next year.

  • - Perfect.

  • And as you mentioned, these are far more specific

  • than the daily schedules that we've put up.

  • I know we're receiving this question already

  • in the chat room that think of a daily schedule,

  • saying, maybe at this time per day,

  • you can work on this course, if you're in 6th grade.

  • The weekly learning plan is gonna get way more specific

  • on what unit and what the actual goal could be

  • to complete by the end of it.

  • So let's talk about that.

  • What would you need to know about the learning plans

  • to just even get started on that first day with your kids?

  • - Well, if we look at a sample, and we can look

  • at that 6th grade sample learning plan,

  • and I'll just show you how it's structured there.

  • At the beginning, there's gonna be some instructions

  • about how to use it, as well as,

  • you can see it says click here for explainer video.

  • That's a short video where Sal talks more

  • about what to do with it.

  • And then there's some instructions here

  • about how you're going to get your kids started.

  • Let's, for example, talk about a kiddo

  • who was supposed to be finishing 6th grade right now,

  • will be entering 7th grade next year.

  • They've already learned probably

  • a lot of the 6th grade content, so this is gonna explain

  • to have them start with the course challenge

  • to earn credit for the things that they already know,

  • and Dave will talk more about that in a few minutes,

  • about how that mastery system works,

  • and the course challenges works,

  • but they're gonna get credit for

  • what they already know by taking a pre-test.

  • And then they're going to, in the system,

  • have a to-do list of work that they haven't mastered yet,

  • and that's gonna map onto this table here.

  • So what you're seeing in this table

  • is the 20-week version of finishing 6th grade,

  • and the 20 weeks will take you right up to August

  • to when 7th grade would begin.

  • And in this table, you'll see that each row is a week

  • with an end date on Friday,

  • and then the color changes represent

  • a different unit of instruction that's starting.

  • So for example, in this one, in the first week

  • that student would take that course challenge

  • to pre-test out of some of the content.

  • Then they would begin the ratios, rates,

  • and percentages unit, and they would be aiming

  • to get about 600 points that week in that unit.

  • The next week they would continue work on that unit.

  • It's a pretty big unit.

  • They would aim to get to 1200 points.

  • That's another 600 points for a total of 1200.

  • The following week, they would aim to get to 1900,

  • and they would move on to the next course,

  • or to the next unit, I mean.

  • You're going to wanna decide

  • between the 20-week and the 12-week options.

  • If you would keep scrolling down here,

  • you would see that there's a 12-week option

  • that has you finished by the end of June.

  • And that just depends on how much time you wanna invest.

  • You're gonna be able to fit in a little bit more content

  • if you're with the 20-week option,

  • but we wanted to make sure that if you wanna spend

  • only a shorter amount of time and get to maybe

  • the time when the school year would typically have ended,

  • that you're able to hit all the really high points,

  • so that's what the 12-week one does.

  • And then if you keep scrolling, you'll notice

  • there's another pair of tables,

  • and these are for a foundational learning plan.

  • So those first two tables tell a 6th grader

  • how to finish 6th grade.

  • The second pair of tables give you a plan

  • for our arithmetic class, which is a foundational

  • skills class that supports 6th grade.

  • So if you have even more time

  • that you wanna invest in 6th grade,

  • or if your student is struggling a little bit

  • with 6th grade, you might have them also work

  • on this arithmetic course to build

  • some of those foundational skills to support it.

  • And that's kind of what you need to know there,

  • and then if we look here, we can see that

  • the most important time in getting these learning plans

  • off the ground, or really,

  • in getting anything off the ground with a kid

  • is the first two weeks, the beginning of it,

  • where you wanna really establish your routine

  • and get into a pattern with it.

  • And you can, things that can help you with that

  • are making the plan physical.

  • If you do have a printer, print it.

  • If you don't have a printer, sketch it out

  • on a piece of paper.

  • Make it a place where they can write and interact with

  • and really see on the refrigerator or somewhere,

  • and making it a clear habit,

  • where there's a routine to it.

  • First, I'm gonna check my goals.

  • Then I'm gonna open and do some work.

  • Then I'm gonna record my progress every day,
