Instructional self-coaching, anytime, anywhere
Discover the benefits of TeacherPrints.
There are only a few tools available today that can analyze recordings of your teaching, and they are expensive and complicated. With the invention of TeacherPrints, we have made a technology that is accessible to anyone. Inspired by the teachers around the world who strive for excellence despite limited access to financial resources, we have developed a low-to-no cost, language-agnostic, instructional coaching app built on open-source machine learning models. And it works on your smartphone!
Our product team includes experts in international education, research design, psycholinguistics, behavior modification, machine learning, data analytics, and project management. We have combined our decades of experience to ensure that TeacherPrints can provide meaningful information to help teachers grow. And we haven’t done it alone! TeacherPrints was developed in consultation with more than 10 teaching and instructional coaching experts, who declared it “useful and ingenious”, “compelling”, and “brilliant”.
TeacherPrints uses artificial intelligence to analyze audio recordings of teachers and students talking in their classrooms. Every voice has its own characteristics; for example, the pitch of a voice is highest for children, lower for women, and lowest of all for men. Our computer models review the recording a millisecond at a time and identify any voice that is present - no matter what language is being spoken! When the recording ends, the AI converts the analysis into visualizations of teacher and student talk during the session.
The building blocks of your TeacherPrint
Awareness of these features is the key to your classroom success.
Quality teacher talk -- explaining concepts to students -- is important, but for students to make the knowledge their own, student talk is critical. It’s a balance. Teachers need to hear student talk in order to assess student understanding.
