Socratic the mobile learning app that the technology giant Google acquired last year has now got an upgrade. The app now employs AI technology that will be helpful for high school and university students, when they are doing schoolwork while they are outside the classroom. The app directs them via available resources and also helps them identify the basic concepts that will guide them to answer the questions. Currently, the revamped Socratic app is available on the App Store for iOS users and will arrive for Android users in November.
Socratic, Engineering Manager Shreyans Bhansali said in a blog post, “In building educational resources for teachers and students, we’ve spent a lot of time talking to them about challenges they face and how we can help. We’ve heard that students often get “stuck” while studying. When they have questions in the classroom, a teacher can quickly clarify—but it’s frustrating for students who spend hours trying to find answers while studying on their own.”
For the students, this app will be guiding them to solve tough mathematics problems. This app will help the students to take the picture of a question and also allows them to ask the app a question with their voice. The app will then get the most important resources across the web. If the user is under pressure to understand a textbook content or else handouts they can also click the photo of the page and the app will offer them the alternative details of the same concepts.
As we mentioned earlier, the app helps the users to solve tough mathematic questions to do this the company has designed and trained the algorithms. This helps the students to work on the complex problems and the app automatically discovers the relevant underlying concepts. The app finds out important videos, concept explanations as well as online resources that will be of assistance in solving their inquiries. The app also breaks down the concept into smaller and easy to understand lessons.
According to Google, they have worked with educators in order to create subject guides on more than one thousand higher education as well as high school topics like Biology, Physics, Algebra, Geometry, Fiction, Non-Fiction and so on. The app also lets the students revise their topics via key points and then go deeper with helpful resources on the web.
