Teacher Advisor With Watson

Empowering teachers with IBM Watson to better meet the individual learning needs of every student.

Our Initiative

Nothing matters more to student success than the teacher. So IBM worked with educators to create Teacher Advisor, a web–based resource that uses IBM Watson to help teachers plan lessons that better meet the needs of their students. Teachers can choose from more than 8,000 lesson plans, in–person activities, and classroom strategies — all vetted by educators and math coaches.

How we are involved

Learning & attention issues get AI support

Students with ADHD, dyslexia and other learning challenges often get inconsistent support in the classroom. IBM, Understood for All, and the National Center for Learning Disabilities are helping to change that.
