TeachMateAi is a selection of teaching tools that are AI-powered with the idea to make teaching life easier by freeing up time, specifically from administrative tasks.
The company says that its goal is to help teachers focus on the part of the job they love -- teaching -- rather than be bogged down in the admin side of the work. It's like having a personal digital assistant to help with lesson planning and more.
It's claimed that using this suite of tools has allowed some teachers to save more than 10 hours per week. Even if it can do half that for you, it could be a valuable resource, for sure.
A free trial is available so you can give it a go before you decide, but for now read on to find out all you need to know about TeachMateAi.
What is TeachMateAi?
TeachMateAi is another tool in the new wave of AI-powered teaching assistant systems that aims to help make the life of an educator more streamlined.
At its core the TeachMateAi system is powered by OpenAi with refined tuning to get the best results from the artificial intelligence. Teachers can input very few details on what they need yet will still get a comprehensive output that is -- more often than not -- ready to share with students.
Plenty of free tools are available, as well as some more premium features for teachers, both for admin tasks and in-class duties -- although the latter are what you need to upgrade to premium for access to.
Everything is web-based and, although there is a small delay as the AI generates your results, everything moves quickly and is laid out minimally for ease of use.
How does TeachMateAi work?
TeachMateAi is free to use as long as you sign up using your email address. You're then able to begin exploring the free tools available to use right away via the website.
Navigate to the Free Tools section and you'll be met with nine different options that you can use immediately. The first is Report Writer, which allows you to input a student name, subject title, positive and negative points before hitting output. The AI will then go to work resulting in a report as if you'd taken the time to write it fully. This can be shared directly, using copy and paste, or output to a Word document to share that way.
You are also able to save favorite tools for quicker access, and there is a My Content section on the website that allows you to save, edit, and copy content you've created previously.
