Save hours of lesson planning time
Maia is an AI assistant for teachers with many talents, friendly and efficient. She can support you with creating lessons that follow a proven pedagogical framework. These lesson suggestions are based either on a written prompt, on copy-pasted text, or even on the text within uploaded images. It only takes her up to 2 minutes to create the first lesson suggestion! Furthermore, at any point during your lesson you can Ask Maia to create quizzes or polls based on any slide. Maia lifts the time pressure, and offers you great flexibility and innovation, saving you many hours of work.
The possibilities of working with Maia
Thanks to Maia’s new features, you could create a lesson on potentially anything. Whether it's a snapshot of a museum plaque, a brochure, or an informational display, Maia can effortlessly convert these into valuable digital lesson suggestions. What Maia can do is truly extraordinary! Even when we confine our examples to the realm of the classroom, 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 interesting article. The sky is the limit.
In a dedicated webinar Thomas will show you how easy it is to create a lesson with Maia.👇

Just out of curiosity... what does the name Maia mean?
Maia is a name of Greek origins, in reference to the mythic mother of Hermes. In Roman mythology, she was the goddess of spring growth and the renewal of life. Maia is also a popular Māori name meaning brave or confident. All these meanings point in the same direction: teachers can trust our AI assistant by relying on her support to enhance their teaching.
