TutorMate is a program run by Innovations for Learning that connects trained, remote volunteers to help younger students with reading literacy. We talk with Dan Weisberg, the National Director of TutorMate about how they developed and scaled the program.
The potential of technology to help early childhood development is in its infancy and programs like TutorMate are great early examples of what might be possible. Is there a future where artificial intelligent teachers may take over this task? We ask Dan this question and how his program is anticipating this potential scenario.
