NCLD Partners With IBM

Updated: Mar 17


The IBM Foundation and the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) have partnered to help teachers support students with learning differences through IBM’s Teacher Advisor with Watson platform.

According to a recent press release from the IBM Foundation, “Teacher Advisor With Watson uses machine learning to correlate and understand nuances within a curated content collection of over 8,000 Open Educational Resources (OER) including vetted, quality lesson plans, student-facing activities and classroom strategies."

"The strategies NCLD is providing through Teacher Advisor with Watson will not only help the one in five students with learning and attention issues succeed, but are actually effective for all students," said NCLD President and CEO Mimi Corcoran. "We know teachers are hungry for this information, and our collaboration with the IBM Foundation to infuse these evidence-based strategies into general education materials is a crucial next step to support teachers across the country."
