Using AI to Close the Learning Gap

Share this post:

In classrooms of all ages and in schools around the world, teachers are met with the challenge of addressing each student’s individual needs and rate at which he or she learns. At IBM our Watson Education team is focused on leveraging AI to improve learning outcomes and implement solutions that will help all students succeed. The IBM Watson Education platform relies on digital trends and AI to give teachers the tools they need to be most effective and help learners perform at the top of their abilities. By using AI as an added assistance in the classroom, our goal is to encourage lifelong learning where each person is met with the individualized tools they need to succeed in school and beyond.

To help achieve this goal, we are excited to announce two new collaborations with Scholastic and Edmodo. Expanding our reach in this way will give educators the resources they need to ensure that there is no gap between what a student is expected to learn and what he or she has actually learned.
