CMU's PLUS Program Joins Learning Engineering Virtual Institute
Carnegie Mellon University's PLUS - Personalized Learning Squared has joined the Learning Engineering Virtual Institute (LEVI) in its aim to improve middle school math education.
CMU's PLUS Program Expands to Multiple Schools, Community Centers
Not all students will ask for help when they're struggling, but more of them can get the support they need thanks to the expanded reach of education software designed by Carnegie Mellon University researchers.
PROOF POINTS: The myth of the quick learner
Some kids appear to learn faster than others. A few years ago, a group of scientists at Carnegie Mellon University decided to study these rapid learners to see what they are doing differently and if their strategies could help the rest of us.
CMU Dean says AI needs 'guardrails'
Should we put the brakes on artificial intelligence? Some computer scientists think so. Carnegie Mellon University is one of the world's leading incubators. CMU doesn't think research should stop but guardrails are needed.
HCII Software Uses AI To Get Students To Do More Math
Software designed by members of the Human Computer Interaction Institute's (HCII) LearnLab to improve math learning outcomes for marginalized K-12 students received a top award from the International E-Learning Association (IELA).
HCII Responds to the Pandemic
With schools closed, K-12 students across the country are relying on online learning like never before. While the pandemic is shining a light on the inequities of education in our country, it is also highlighting the benefits of face-to-face instruction for students.
A Fitbit for Learning
PLUS uses artificial intelligence to vastly expand human mentors’ ability to keep tabs on student learning. Carnegie Mellon University professor Ken Koedinger, who’s heading development of the PLUS app, sees great promise in the program’s potential to address student motivation by providing tailored support.
New tutoring program using AI to help kids learn
A new tutoring program being developed by Carnegie Mellon University and the Center for Urban Education at the University of Pittsburgh may help students once they are back in the classroom.
Squaring the Power of Personalized Learning
PLUS combines personalized learning with artificial intelligence to address opportunity gaps. We spoke with Cassandra Brentley of Pitt's Center for Urban Education to find out how PLUS offers students learning opportunities that are both powerful and personally meaningful.
