India, Japan
Award Level:
Transform Award

Project Description

Smart Paper is an assessment technology that analyzes learning data on paper. By leveraging AI and handwriting recognition, it has the potential to impact each and every child in the world who learns on paper, reaching students in high-tech, low-tech and no-tech areas. Smart Paper lowers the cost of administering classroom assessments, reduces teachers’ evaluation time, and improves the learning communication between students, teachers, and parents by using existing community and school resources. The tool will empower educators to better support students by showing their strengths and weaknesses in written problem-solving processes. By connecting paper with digital tools, Smart Paper will enable users to equitably measure learning at scale.
