The premise of this story is that instead of replacing teachers AI might help teachers. As an example, the author uses IBM’s Teacher Advisor. "Teacher Advisor is a free online resource that helps elementary school teachers plan math lessons," writes Luis Flores. "It houses a library of K-5 math open education resources (OERs)—including activities, lesson plans, and supporting materials—from organizations such as EngageNY, [Massachusetts]CPALMS, and UnboundEd." Additionally, "The AI technology in Teacher Advisor allows teachers to search for resources and create lesson plans in a fraction of the time it would take them to do it alone."
