Teachers do not often have access to mentors to do observations and give them feedback on classroom practice. Analyse lesson recordings using AI to provide feedback to teachers on their classroom practice and promote reflective practice through questioning.

There is limited data analysis on student assessments at a national level so targeting support to underperforming schools is challenging. Analyse school performance data and use AI to group schools to help inform targeting of training and support.

Administrators need more information on classroom practice to facilitate improvement. Using planning documents and classroom recordings, provide summaries of classroom proceedings and content to give school leaders information on teacher practice and curriculum coverage. Management and use of education information Audio: ASR, Large Language Models, NLP: Generation, NLP: Summarisation, NLP: Text Classification

Administrative tasks can be repetitive and time consuming. Generating suggestions for administrative tasks such as drafts of letters and contracts, talking points for meetings or questions for interviews can save time. Content creation & adaptation Large Language Models, NLP: Generation, NLP: Text Classification

School leaders have limited data to help them understand teacher performance. Analyse any combination of student performance data, data from classroom observations and teacher assessments to provide information on teacher performance. Analytics, Management and use of education information Audio: ASR, Large Language Models, ML: Classification, ML: Clustering, ML: Dimensionality Reduction, ML: Regression, NLP: Generation

How We Have Categorised

AI Tools

AI Tool Categories • Definitions

While developing our AI ideas list we’ve also put together a list of the AI tools that might be used to solve the issues set out in each idea. The aim is to help us identify and prioritise what tech to develop and to understand the problems we want to solve.

See AI Tools List

What Does It Do?

Function • Purpose

Some of the AI applications are performing similar functions (even though serving different parts of the Teaching and Learning Framework). For example, AI chatbots could be used by teachers to support Teacher Learning, or by students to support Student Learning. We’ve put together eight functions that AI tools perform to solve the education issues identified. The aim is to help us group similar ideas together for ease of navigation.
