    Date added: 13 Sep 2017

    Elementary school teachers across the nation are beginning to use Teacher Advisor With Watson, a free online tool powered by IBM Watson artificial intelligence technology to help them confidentially access targeted lesson plans and video for math instruction. About 1,000 curated lesson plans and teaching strategies have been vetted for quality and are available so far. The software developed by the IBM Foundation, in collaboration with the American Federation of Teachers, renowned educators, education non-profits, funders, and content providers, provides educators with targeted guidance to help strengthen their teaching skills and improve student achievement.
