Khan Academy unveils Learnstorm India, a pan-India inter-school online learning challenge

August 16, 2018

On August 14, Mountain View, California (USA) headquartered Khan Academy launched LearnStorm India – a free, six-week online learning challenge for grade 3-12 students. By combining practice problems and mindset activities, LearnStorm helps students master core academic subjects, motivate classrooms, and builds student confidence.
Teachers can sign up beginning August 14 for the LearnStorm programme which will run from September 5 through October 19, 2018. Teachers can enroll quickly and easily in LearnStorm using their free Khan Academy account or by creating one.

Speaking on the launch, Sandeep Bapna, India MD, Khan Academy said, “With Khan Academy’s teacher specific tools, educators can finally leverage technology to deliver on the dream of personalising learning for every student. We’re excited to give teachers a fun way to engage students with LearnStorm India.  It has a rewards system that will literally have students across the country leaping out of their chairs, no matter where they are in their educational journey.” 

The first 500 classrooms to register will receive a LearnStorm Class Kit full of fun and motivational goodies for their students. As students complete assignments given by their teacher for LearnStorm, they can unlock a series of certificates and badges. At the end of the six week period, 10 schools among those with the highest levels of participation in LearnStorm, will win the “Keep Going, Keep Growing” grand reward. One school stands a chance to win the grand prize that includes a ‘Khan Super Day’ filled with exciting activities for all the winning LearnStorm participants.

Comments Sal Khan, founder of Khan Academy, “Not only is LearnStorm a fun way for teachers to monitor class progress, but it’s also an inspiring programme for students. Students learn to embrace challenges and understand that tenacity, effort and grit have a huge impact on their success in the classroom and for the rest of their lives.” 

LearnStorm registrations are free and open until October 19, 2018. To learn more, visit learnstormin.khanacademy.org.
