Artificial Intelligence platform keeps thousands of students on track

26 May 2021

More than 4,000 students have now signed up to a new Artificial Intelligence Maths and English Learning Platform – unveiled by The Bedford College Group thanks to a £440,000 grant from South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP).

The platform, which has been designed to improve GCSE grades in both Maths and English, is for 16 to 19-year-olds, as well as apprentices and adult learners.

Hilary Chipping, Chief Executive of SEMLEP, said: “This pioneering system has enabled students to keep on track during the pandemic, further enhance their digital skills and develop key employability skills, which will benefit them now and in the future. 

“Alongside the benefits for students, the platform has proved an amazing resource for teachers – particularly during the periods of lockdown, when the college was unable to open its doors to students.”

The Artificial Intelligence Maths and English Learning Platform, which has been funded for three years via SEMLEP’s Getting Building Fund, combines AI neuroscience and educational psychology to provide targeted support to students. 

The technology recognises the best way each student learns and provides the materials in the way best suited to the user.

Director of Progression Pathways at The Bedford College Group, Nina Sharp, said: “The platform’s technology has been hugely useful for maths and in English has helped students get a firm grasp of language and sentence structure.  

“It is also proving to be an excellent resource for revision, reading and writing skills in general. Students have been telling us how refreshingly easy the system is to use and how intuitive it is – in part because the artificial intelligence recognises the best way each student learns and adapts training ‘nuggets’ accordingly.”

This Artificial Intelligence Maths and English Learning Platform can be used by those of all ages, including adult learners who are re-visiting education or training.
