# Ideas for using Khan Academy in your classroom

## Welcome!

Are you trying to figure out how to use Khan Academy in your classroom?

We’ve got some ideas to get you started. Most teachers begin with one—or a combination—of these

**four popular implementation models**:## 1) Self-paced practice

Use our Course Mastery feature or Official SAT Practice and students can work at their own pace to master skills.

## Keep going! Keep growing!

**Note:**Due to variation in the amount and format of resources across grades and subjects, not every model may be applicable for each course.

Check out the resources specific to your course by using the

**Content tab**to decide if a specific model is a good fit.We encourage you to keep in mind the following questions as you decide what model is the best fit for you and your students:

*What instructional need does each model target?**Which instructional need is the top priority in my classroom?**What level of device availability does each model require?**How much access to technology do students have in my classroom and at home?*

**Every teacher and every classroom's needs are different!**These models aren't mutually exclusive—over time, most teachers adapt, combine and refine their approaches to using our resources and tools.

**Good luck!**## Want to join the conversation?
