  • - All right, hi everyone.

  • Thank you so much for joining our parent webinar

  • on how to create a schedule

  • for your third through fifth grade student,

  • as well as how you can use Khan Academy resources and tools

  • to support your child's learning at home,

  • so you can keep your day moving.

  • I wanna take a moment to say thank you to our sponsors,

  • including Bank of America, Google.org, AT&T,

  • and Novartis for helping us provide this support

  • during school closures.

  • Their support has made webinars,

  • and resources like this possible.

  • I also want to acknowledge all you parents,

  • grandparents, older siblings,

  • and maybe even some teachers who have joined us today.

  • Thank you for taking the time to learn more

  • about how you can keep your child learning at home.

  • We are so grateful you're turning to Khan Academy

  • during these challenging times.

  • My name is Shannon, and I'm a former teacher,

  • currently working on the District Partnerships team

  • at Khan Academy,

  • and I'm so excited to be joined

  • by two of my colleagues and friends,

  • Dan who is on our marketing team,

  • and Patty who works with me

  • on the District Partnerships team.

  • Patty will be answering your questions

  • throughout the webinar,

  • so please submit any questions you have

  • throughout the presentation in the question box,

  • and she will get back to you there.

  • And we'll also save about 10 minutes at the end

  • to answer your questions live.

  • Today's webinar will cover how to find,

  • and utilize content on Khan Academy

  • during the school closure period,

  • as well as tips and best practices

  • for setting up a daily schedule for your child.

  • This will hopefully be helpful to parents

  • who are looking for ways to keep their child learning

  • during school closures, and provide some structure,

  • so that you can gain back time in your day

  • for all the many tasks I'm sure you have on your list

  • beyond child care and homeschooling.

  • This webinar will not cover in detail account setup,

  • or how to get started on Khan Academy.

  • So if you're new, our Remote Learning Guide,

  • Quickstart Guide, is a good place to start.

  • If you go to the handout that's linked in this webinar,

  • you will see on the slide we have linked

  • the Quickstart Guide, so you can check that out there.

  • Now, for a bit of background on Khan Academy.

  • We are a nonprofit organization,

  • and our mission is to provide

  • a free world-class education to anyone, anywhere.

  • Our content is standards aligned,

  • and available in over 40 languages,

  • covering multiple content areas.

  • Your child can access our resources on the web

  • or through a mobile device.

  • With more than a billion children worldwide

  • being impacted by school closures,

  • we are experiencing soaring demand for our free resources.

  • We will continue to produce webinars

  • and resources to support remote learning,

  • So keep checking back to khanacademy.org

  • for any upcoming webinars,

  • and new resources as they are created.

  • And now let's take a look at what resources

  • are available for your child.

  • Khan Academy is possibly best known

  • for our math content and math videos.

  • But in addition to math, we have a full range

  • of subjects and increasing range of subject areas.

  • For your elementary school student,

  • relevant content might include

  • our English Language Arts content,

  • which is in a work-in-progress state.

  • You can expect to see it change and evolve,

  • as we continue to gather feedback.

  • We also have a mastery enabled grammar course,

  • which covers third through fifth grade grammar standards,

  • a computer animation and storytelling course.

  • Both of these course were created in partnership

  • with Disney and Pixar, and are highly creative.

  • They involve computer-based and tech free activities.

  • We also have a computer programming for beginners course,

  • and Growth Mindset activities for all ages.

  • These activities offer students an opportunity

  • to reflect on their learning goals,

  • and develop learning strategies

  • that will likely benefit them

  • as they adjust to their new learning routine at home.

  • Of our third through fifth grade content,

  • one important thing to know,

  • is only math and grammar are mastery enabled,

  • meaning students can work

  • through an entire year's worth of content,

  • and at their own pace,

  • and track their progress along the way.

  • You might be wondering, well, how do I access this content?

  • And the first step is to ensure

  • that your child is logged in

  • to their Khan Academy account.

  • And from there, and as you can see on the right side,

  • you go up to Courses,

  • and that will bring you to the menu

  • displaying all content on Khan Academy.

  • And your students can access any exercises,

  • quizzes, unit tests from there.

  • But you have another option.

  • On your child's homepage,

  • they can select Edit Courses to access content.

  • And one benefit to adding courses this way,

  • is it will automatically recommend courses

  • based off their grade level.

  • So you can easily find what content

  • is relevant for your child,

  • and once they've selected and saved those courses,

  • it will always appear on their homepage,

  • so it will be easy to access for them.

  • And during this time of school closures,

  • we've heard so much feedback and questions

  • from parents and teachers,

  • about how to structure a student's day,

  • and keep the child learning,

  • while still getting your own work done.

  • We know how challenging it can be

  • to juggle multiple priorities,

  • and we hope that our resources can help you achieve

  • some semblance of normalcy during this time.

  • And in response to this feedback,

  • we've created this set of schedules

  • that give you a recommendation,

  • or you can think of it as a starting point

  • for structuring your day.

  • Using the link on this page,

  • you will see a template for the daily schedules

  • which go all the way from pre-K to high school.

  • So if you have younger students or older students,

  • you can see the schedules there.

  • We put these schedules out,

  • having heard that there was a need,

  • but it's important to acknowledge

  • that they won't just work as-is for all families.

  • You know your child best,

  • so we encourage you to adapt and change the schedule,

  • to make it work for you and your child.

  • And in our sample schedule which you see here,

  • the subjects outlined in green

  • have resources available for your child

  • on the Khan Academy.

  • Your child's school might already be

  • providing remote learning guidance or tools,

  • or the schedule might not work well

  • with the routine you've already established.

  • So know our sample schedules are meant

  • to be flexible and adaptable,

  • to meet the needs of your family.

  • You might not be able to stick to the schedule every day,

  • and that's more than okay.

  • During these challenging times,

  • everyone is just trying to do their best,

  • so if all you can do is an hour of math,

  • and an hour of reading a day with your child,

  • that's great, and that's enough.

  • When you and your child are ready,

  • you can always add additional subjects,

  • or activities that might interest your child.

  • For a quick run-through of the sample schedule we have here,

  • we'll start our day with breakfast,

  • followed by math.

  • Some outdoor play if possible,
