Why use artificial intelligence in education?
What problem is CENTURY solving?
More than half a billion children across the world lack basic literacy and numeracy skills, while a quarter of a million English children are learning in failing schools. 80% of teachers are considering leaving the profession due to unbearable workloads and almost half are working the equivalent of an extra three days a week in the evenings and on weekends – an unsustainable situation.
For decades technologies like artificial intelligence have been disrupting and improving sectors across the world, while education, the second-biggest sector globally, has remained largely untouched.
How CENTURY solves this problem
Now schools are embracing the power of AI through CENTURY, which is transforming the way students learn – and the way teachers teach – across the world.
AI has the power to transform education from an outdated ‘one-size-fits-all’ to ‘one-size-fits-one’ by providing each student with a personalised path to mastery. The research into its benefits is clear – a study conducted with UCL involving 11,000 pupils showed that using CENTURY improves students' understanding of a topic by an average of 30%.
While the student is the most important person in the room, the teacher is the most powerful. CENTURY empowers teachers by automating admin tasks like marking and planning, saving them on average six hours a week - freeing them to focus on actually teaching. Teachers are provided extensive data on pupils’ performance in real-time, allowing them to better monitor progress and perform timely, targeted interventions to help their students.
