How Computerized Tutors Are Learning to Teach Humans

How Computerized Tutors Are Learning to Teach Humans | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it

Can computers learn to teach students, and respond to cues that students put out that comuters may not recognize? Neil Heffernan has been working on this question since 1995. Back in 1997, two years into a graduate program at Carnegie Mellon Institute, he had "come to believe that the programs did little to assist their users."  But his perspective changed when he began to videotaple tutoring sessions of a human tutor.

This article explores the issues of computerized tutors and looks at a specific program, ASSISTments (http://www.assistments.org/) that is primarily used to tutor math. To learn how ASSISTments is working in a variety of districts and more about computerized tutoring take the time to read this article.
