AI Sokrates Practice Training Platform Operating Process

AI Sokrates Practice Training Platform is the world's leading and original smarter lesson hands-on training platform, applying AI to assist teacher professional enhancement and accelerate teacher professional development. Schools/organizations that have implemented HiTeach Smarter Teaching System, or teacher professional communities participating in the TEAM Model Collaborative Teacher Development Project can use this training platform. With the assistance of AI, each practice exercise will provide immediate feedback on the data features of teaching behaviors and produce complete lesson videos, and teachers use these automatically generated data to more quickly refine and optimize teaching models.

The main functions of the practice training platform include obtaining HiTeach serial number, recording videos, submitting works, and reviewing works.
