Carnegie Learning, a comprehensive, dynamic, and progressive learning technology company, today announced that its EMC School division has signed an agreement with Choosito!, a curator of open Web content for learning and a National Science Foundation (NSF) Business Innovation Award winner. The agreement ensures that EMC School’s Passport will be the only comprehensive learning technology platform on the market offering this next-generation Web search and indexing.
Choosito! leverages artificial intelligence, machine learning and natural language processing in a unique way to help both teachers and students. Through a combination of 350,000+ pre-curated sites in its Choosito! Library and its powerful Choosito! Web search, teachers can collect OER and other resources to build lessons and personalize instruction, easily and efficiently.
In addition, students can work on their own, searching for content that is both appropriate and at their reading level. For example, some tools simply filter out inappropriate content, but still present students with an overwhelming collection of resources, often well beyond their reading level. Choosito!, on the other hand, presents students with both curated content libraries and other Web sources specific to their reading level and content interests.
Choosito! is unlike any other search engine solution available today. It is the only engine that:
- Uses artificial intelligence to filter by reading level and subject area
- Offers a teacher-approved library of 350,000+ resources (and growing)
- Helps students become better, more efficient researchers by providing built-in resource evaluation and citation-generation tools
- Makes it easy for teachers to make and share their own mini-libraries (Choosito! Collections)
