    Teens Earn College Degrees From IBM-Inspired P-TECH Schools


    Date added: 2017-01-05


    Sixteen young women and men are joining the ranks of 35 early graduates of the original P-TECH school, which has spawned a nationwide network since 2011 of nearly 60 career-focused schools that confer both high school and technology-oriented community college associates degrees. All of the January 2017 graduates of the Brooklyn, NY P-TECH school, pictured at IBM's Astor Place Facility in Manhattan, completed the six-year curriculum ahead of schedule, with some finishing in as few as 3.5 years. IBM is committed to working with educators and businesses to grow the number of schools in the P-TECH network to 80 during 2017. There are currently more than 250 businesses partnering with P-TECH schools serving thousands of students. (Jon Simon/Feature Photo Service for IBM)

    Nathanael Greene Elementary school teachers Cara Madison, left and Lee-Ann Solas, join hundreds of educators in the U.S. who are testing Teacher Advisor with Watson, cognitive tool that provides targeted guidance to teachers seeking high quality lesson plan recommendations, vetted curricula content, and personalized teaching strategies in September 2016 in Pawtucket, RI. This free technology will initially focus on third-grade math, a linchpin academic subject. It understands questions teachers pose in everyday language, and will get even smarter over time. The online software was developed by the IBM International Foundation in collaboration with the American Federation of Teachers, funders, educators, education non-profits, and content providers.
