What are the main advantages of creating lessons with Maia?
1. Maia could save you hours of lesson planning time
Maia is a versatile and friendly AI assistant. Thanks to Maia, the whole lesson-making process requires less preparation time—less time spent on researching a topic or planning the lesson’s structure. Maia can assist you with creating lessons that follow a proven pedagogical structure. She begins by activating students’ prior knowledge with a mind map, delivers information on any subject or topic, and concludes the lesson with 3 open-ended questions to encourage self reflection. Her lesson suggestions are based on your written prompts, on copy and pasted text from any source, or even on the text in images.
2. You could create lessons on potentially anything
Thanks to Maia’s new features, you could create a lesson on potentially anything. You could take a picture of a museum plaque, of a brochure, or an information board, and transform them into lessons. What Maia can do is truly remarkable! Even if we limit our examples to the classroom setting, it’s nice to know that you could copy-paste questions from past exam papers, extract parts from your syllabus, or upload a screenshot of an article you love. Let Maia work her magic and turn them into digital lesson suggestions! Ready to be checked and edited.
3. Maia simplifies the first steps for new users
Some teachers have never used a digital teaching platform before, so starting to figure out how to create their first digital lesson can be quite daunting, regardless of how straightforward it may be. However, with Maia’s support, the first steps towards creating a digital lesson are now mostly automated. Instead of wondering where to begin while staring at a blank slide, you are almost immediately provided with a structured lesson suggestion with a pedagogical framework. This makes it easier to edit and fine-tune the content to match your teaching style.
Just out of curiosity... what does the name Maia mean?
