Running for:


A traditional elementary school classroom consists of one teacher and 20+ students. Tracking a child's progress and identifying problems areas can be difficult with such a large teacher to student ratio. I choose to investigate Google Cloud's Speech-To-Text API as a tool to monitor children's classroom activities. Specifically, I use the system as a platform to help children learn to read. A child is presented with a page from an ebook, as they attempt to read the page, we use our Android application to grade their accuracy and look for difficulties in pronunciation. We in real time show the user their progress while reading and in post process provide a detailed analysis of how the child did. We believe the detailed reports on children's reading competency will allow teachers to make more informed decisions when creating class content.
