Intelligent, Adaptive Program with Just-in-time Feedback

Project Overview

Teachers’ conceptual understanding of mathematics as well as their understanding of how students learn, and their repertoire of instructional tools and practices, are essential for implementing teaching practices that will lead students to develop command of concepts. Yet preservice teachers may have varying degrees of access to learning opportunities, depending on their location or the teacher preparation program in which they enroll. This project will address this issue through a program that is accessible to elementary and middle grade preservice teachers anywhere and at any time focused on teaching of ratios and proportional relationships, an area of persistent challenge for learners. This project hopes to advance understanding of preservice teachers’ learning and contribute new knowledge about how an interactive program that uses artificial intelligence can improve preservice teachers’ knowledge and practices.
