Khan Academy Kids has added Teacher Tools to support learning in our app! For a while now we have been hearing from teachers that they would like an easy way to share Khan Academy Kids with their entire class. Now they can!
We are so excited to release a set of Teacher Tools to supercharge learning for your students. Khan Academy Kids Teacher Tools are available in the latest update of the Khan Academy Kids app. To access these new features if you are new to Khan Academy Kids, simply download our app for iOS or Android and set up a Class Account. If you are already enjoying our app, update to the latest version of the app, and convert your account to a Class Account. To do this, after updating, go to the Parent section of the app and in the top right drop-down, select "Teacher: Convert to Class Account." It is the same app you love, now with new features.

See what's new!
Easily set up your class
Set up all the students in your class quickly and easily. For remote learning, share a unique and secure Class Code with parents to allow them to sign into and learn from home. Select the level for each student as a starting point, and our Personalized Learning Path will adapt to meet each child’s skill level for different topics. To see more about how to do this, check out this article.
Search lessons by standards
Our content is mapped to the Head Start Early Learning Outcomes Framework and Common Core State Standards. That makes it easy for you to select lessons that fit with your teaching plans. Use the search bar to search for the standard you'd like to address, and we'll pull up a selection of lessons for you to assign to your class. We show you how here.
Assign lessons to your class
Create assignments for students to access. Our interactive lessons cover math, language, logic, social-emotional development, and creative expression, along with an overflowing library of books and stories to delight emerging readers. Teachers can easily select lessons to assign with a click. When students sign in to their Class Account, a heart button will pulse, indicating that they have assignments waiting for them from their teacher. To see more on how to do this, check out this article.
View reports to monitor student progress
Access real-time data about how your students are progressing. Identify gaps to work on and opportunities to accelerate students who have mastered skills. See how student progress reports work in this article.
School closures mean that many families are learning remotely. Parents are able to make full use of Teacher Tools, including assigning work and reviewing the progress dashboard. If you are a parent who is new to Khan Academy Kids, consider signing up as a teacher while you are supporting remote learning, there are step-by-step instructions on getting started here. Families already using Khan Academy Kids can enable Teacher Tools (see how here).
Khan Academy Kids is 100% free with no ads - even with all of these new features. Our app is free for teachers and families to use. Find us on Apple, Google Play, and Amazon app stores, or learn more at www.khankids.org.
