You know that I’m crazy about #ScannableTech and here is a fantastic example of it in action. The folks at Socratic.org have just released a new homework app that makes it easier to for kids to get the help they need. With Socratic’s app, students snap a photo of questions on their homework assignments… and Socratic automatically gives links kids to content that helps them answer the questions and learn the material.
Socratic’s artificial intelligence (AI) figures out the concept needed to answer the question. Its AI was developed using experts who categorized example questions depending on the core concepts needed to answer them. Those categorizations helps the app predict the concept a student needs to master in order to answer a question — even if it’s not explicitly mentioned in the question. Socratic’s content is most robust in chemistry currently, but other subjects are growing and being added.
Socratic is currently available for iOS devices (Android coming soon) and you can download it on the Apple App Store!
