Virtual Mentoring and Assessment for STEM Learning

September 20, 2010

How can all students be assured the opportunity to learn significant math and science content? How can educators make math and science teaching more inclusive and motivating? WCER’s Epistemic Games Group probes these questions through the development of automated mentoring technology called AutoMentor. This program builds on previous automated tutoring systems that help teach kids math and science through conversations in natural language. AutoMentor will help to provide motivation and mentoring for math and science students and also will help assess how well students think and act like math and science professionals within epistemic games.
