How can I use Chatterbox at my school?
Chatterbox is currently used in schools and districts all over the country. It’s used in classroom settings as a general educational assistant or in an 8 week technology progression where students learn to code real-time programs using live data.
Do students need prior coding experience?
No prior experience is necessary. Most technology available to students are “black boxes.” Chatterbox is designed to empower novices to understand how technology works by building it, then customize it by coding their own programs.
What do students create?
Students can start coding simple programs exploring speech-to-text technology or advanced voice skills to look up live weather data. Students have even used Chatterbox for interactive school art projects.
How do they learn about artificial intelligence?
Chatterbox makes artificial intelligence accessible in a safe and constructive environment. We put safeguards to
