LiveHint gives middle and high school students the opportunity to ask for hints from a friendly TutorBot while working through problems in the Carnegie Learning textbook. The app works on any mobile phone, Chromebook, or web browser, as well as Google and Alexa devices, where students can simply ask a question and receive instant verbal prompts and hints. It is also available in Spanish.
LiveHint is for at-home learning too, giving students and parents the support they need when students can’t be with their teacher. It was developed in record time in response to the COVID-19 crisis and the immediate need for virtual learning support. It is also a valuable tool for homework help and individual study in breakout groups for students in the classroom. LiveHint encourages student engagement in mathematics by meeting students where they are, using chat, video, audio and emojis.
Carnegie Learning data scientists are also able to analyze LiveHint usage data to better understand how students engage with the instructional materials and how to continuously improve them. LiveHint is a Cool Tool Award Finalist (2021) for “Best Tutoring Solution” as part of The EdTech Awards from EdTech Digest. Learn more.
