Spout Is On at Khan Academy

Feb 20, 2013

SPOUT ON AT KHAN: Want to see your students build snazzy little robots? Teacher-maker extraordinaire, Karl Wendt, has been working under the covers at the Khan Academy this school year to introduce a zest of project-based learning to the material offered. Here's a very cool example: how 3rd grade students learned about (standards-based) concepts of matter and energy when building their very own adorable "Spout Bot." Best of all: Wendt has created a handy video to show you how you can lead this lesson in your classroom. Check it out here. If you're heading to SXSW-edu, swing by our "Maker" room and meet Karl in person, for true 1:1 experience!
