'Knewton' has designed a robot tutor that provides children with personalized lessons. In the classroom setting, it can be difficult to ensure every child is learning at the same pace. This app supplements school lessons by giving teachers a tool for providing personalized instruction.

Knewton's new tool works by assessing each student's skill level and providing a personalized lesson that corresponds to their needs. Knewton then searches through its content to find a video, game or assignment that suits the student's skill level. When the student finishes the assigned work, the system will provide an assessment to gauge whether the child has fully grasped the concept at hand. Instead of giving the same lesson to the entire class, teachers can use the tool to ensure that each student receives a lesson that is tailored to their unique abilities.

The robot tutor provides a revolutionary way for teachers to personalize their lessons and ensure that no child falls behind.
