The AI Sokrates Teaching Analytics Service (supported by the TEAM Model Smarter Classroom System) collects data related to teaching behavior from classroom interactions and pedagogical applications, and then automatically generates professional teaching analysis reports (machine intelligence) using the AI machine learning engine (AI Sokrates) developed exclusively by HABOOK.
The reports generated by AI can combine the opinions of lesson observation experts and teachers (expert wisdom) and present them in visual charts, which can be used not only as a convenient tool for lesson observation and discussion, but also as a reference for teachers' self-improvement. Through AI technology, we can help with teacher professional development and enhance their ability to integrate information technology into teaching.
Sokrates Report is a data report produced immediately after AI Sokrates "watch" a lesson and analyzes the teaching behavioral data characteristics. In this way, by interpreting the Sokrates Report, you can quickly grasp the teaching pattern and "taste" a complete 40 minutes lesson in just 1 minute.
The Sokrates Report is composed of two parts: 1. TPC Index and Technology Functions Triggered Times/Duration and 2. Teaching Behavioral Data Characteristics.
The Technology Interaction (T) Index has five analysis indexes, including T1: Data channel, T2: Data feedback, T3: Decision by statistics, T4: Focus on students, and T5: Multi-assessment. AI statistically analyzes the frequency and effective combination application of each index, and gives a sub-index and a total index.
The Pedagogical Application (P) Index has six analysis indexes, including P1: Group learning, P2: Whole-class interaction, P3: Student center decision, P4: Whole-class assessment, P5: Individual learning, P6: Multi-approach assessment. AI uses these six indexes to evaluate the effectiveness of Teaching Behavioral Data Characteristics. The more effective teaching behavior data characteristics, the higher the index will be.
The Content Implementation (C) Index has five analysis indexes, including C1: Teaching Design, C2: Teaching Process, C3: Teaching Effectiveness, C4: Technology integration, C5: Innovation. These analysis indexes need to be entered manually by experts, and combines with AI Sokrates's Technology Interaction (T) Index and Pedagogical Application (P) Index to form the TPACK, a smarter lesson evaluation index that deeply integrates Technological (T), Pedagogical (P), Content (C).
For related academic research information, please refer to TPACK theoretical framework
Technology Interaction (T) Index and Pedagogical Application (P) Index are used to distinguish the in-depth integration state of smarter lesson TPC by light signals. A score above 70 is displayed as a green light, a score of 50-70 is displayed as a yellow light, and a score below 50 is displayed as a red light. The red light means that the Technology Interaction or Pedagogical Application index is low, the yellow light means that the index is gradually approaching the application mature stage, and the green light means that it has reached a deep integration state. When a lesson's T and P indexes both show green lights, it is called a Sokrates double green light lesson.
By observing the frequency of technological interaction and the red, yellow, or green lights displayed by AI Sokrates, you can quickly and preliminarily interpret the basic state of the deep integration of this lesson.
Technology Interaction (T) Index
Pedagogical Application (P) Index
An appropriate combination of technology interactive function applications can obtain a higher index, and when the technology interaction index shows a green light, it means that the technology interactive application in this lesson has reached a proficiency level.
The P Index reflects the applicability and effectiveness of applied teaching modules, and the more effective teaching behavioral data characteristics, the higher the P Index will be. Teaching has no fixed method, machine intelligence can only give feedback (index) from the perspective of assisting teachers. It depends on teachers' self-reflection and appropriate use of teaching modules in order to obtain the best teaching effect.

Sokrates Video is a service that combines the results of AI Sokrates analysis with high-quality videos recorded with AI Terminal or AI camera to produce Sokrates Video and Sokrates Report. Sokrates Video not only automatically generates professional teaching analysis reports with AI (machine intelligence), but also integrates the feedback from lesson observation experts and teacher teams (expert wisdom), and uses visual charts as a reference for lesson observation discussions and teacher self-improvement.
Sokrates Video is mainly stored, presented, and managed through a lesson observation platform (i.e., the school's exclusive lesson examples channel). It is made up of data from each lesson observation and contains data such as in-class teaching video, teaching behavioral data characteristics, and expert feedback list/content. When playing the video, related data is automatically synchronized.

On the right side of the Sokrates Video, you can switch between Expert Page and AI Page. When switching to the Expert Page, a list of observers' feedback is displayed. When switching to AI Page, the TPC index and technology interaction frequency analyzed by AI Sokrates are displayed.
The Expert Page of Sokrates Video is divided into eight areas, which are explained as follows:
1. Video Information: Display basic information of Sokrates Video.
2. Expert/AI Page Switch: Press the page switching button to switch between Expert Page and AI Page.
3. In-class Teaching Screen Video: The teaching screen video area has control functions such as fast-forwarding, rewinding, and full-screen playing.
4. Teaching Behavioral Data Characteristics: Display basic technology interactive functions and timeline. Press the feature marker to play the video of that time point.
5. Opinion Curve (hot spot): Positive marking curve is green, negative marking curve is blue.
6. Expert Feedback List: All public, visitor, and private feedback items can be displayed. Providing convenient filtering function.
7. Expert Feedback Content: The feedback content is presented, including the text, photos, audio, or video content from the observer (experts, teachers).
8. Add New Feedback (Comments): After the lesson observation is over, you can still give feedback any time (for non-synchronized lesson observation).
The data source of the Expert Page is the text, photos, audio or video data marked by the Sokrates Lecture Observation app when the class observation experts or the teacher team are observing the class. For related information, please refer to:
►Digital Lesson Observation series: Lesson Observation Focus Category
Expert Feedback List displays all items in chronological order and provides a convenient filtering function. You can filter by observers and categories. Click the copy hyperlink button to get the video clip hyperlink information.
Feedback/Comments can be divided into three attributes: public, personal, and visitor. Only when the personal button is pressed will your own personal comments be displayed, and when the visitor button is pressed, the visitor comments are displayed (only the lesson instructor or administrator have this feature).
The data in Sokrates Video are interlinked, including the timeline of five data items, including In-class Teaching Video, Teaching Behavioral Data Characteristics, Opinion Curve, Expert Feedback List/Content. For example, when you click click Behavioral Data Characteristics, it will automatically switch to show the corresponding video and feedback.

AI Sokrates is based on modern educational concepts. It builds models based on the key points of technology application and elements of teacher-student interaction in quality lessons, and then based on the actual lesson data collected, uses AI machine learning technology to continuously adjust and revise, which means that the more lesson data there are, the more valuable the reference index given by AI Sokrates will be.
AI Sokrates has accumulated over 100,000 lessons so far, which is equivalent to having observed more than 100,000 lessons, and continues to accumulate new lesson data, so it can be said that it is the machine expert who has seen the most lessons in the world!
Many people may ask, "Is the AI Sokrates Index accurate?" To answer this question, it is important to understand that the purpose of the AI Sokrates Index is to assist teachers who use technology in teaching to apply it well in their classes. Therefore, the AI Sokrates Index is not absolutely indicative of a quality lesson, but has been shown to be positively correlated with the results of many lesson demonstration activities in the past.
For example, in events such as the Cross-Straits Smarter Class Team Invitational Tournament held in China for several years, the Taoyuan City Innovative Technology Interactive Classroom Teaching Team Competition, the Global TEAM Model Smarter Lecture Contest, and the TEAM Model Smarter Classroom Carnival held in Amman, Jordan, teachers from different regions and schools were invited to conduct public lessons based on their subjects, and many experts were invited to observe and rate each lesson in multiple directions. The final evaluation of the experts' perceived lesson scores is consistent with the AI Sokrates Index ranking trend!
Therefore, in a technology-based teaching environment, as long as teachers want to apply technology conventions to their teaching, AI Sokrates can definitely help, and will be an excellent AI coach for teachers to integrate IT into their teaching.
Using only HiTeach's desktop recording function or available video equipment, digital lesson observation record can be integrated with AI Sokrates!
