Hello Marci! Lubbock ISD has partnered with IBM to implement the Watson Classroom. We are in the user acceptance testing phase and should be live in a month. Not sure what your timeline is but in January we'll be able to share more about teacher's usage experience.
The product has a lot of capabilities to help teachers and the AI portion provides individualized student information to teachers for use in the classroom (element) and planning (enlight).
With enough data the product can predict what concepts students will master or struggle with, identify any precursors the student missed or needs, recommend resources to use for the student, and spotlights behavior trends.
Preparing individualized learning plans for every student is not feasible in most cases. This product can provide one pane of glass that brings the data from all our systems and make recommendations on which resources to use for teaching a concept saving teachers a tremendous amount of time.
Steven had a great question about staff learning around AI. When school districts implement AI products, they will need to be fed data from our respective systems. Our experience has been staff won't directly develop or work on the AI product but will interface systems and applications to it. We're not escaping the nightly FTP uploads yet!
