  • Beyond SSO: Next-Generation Interoperability at AllHere

    AllHere Explained #2 One of the ways an edtech company adds value for the school or district they are partnering with is by ensuring their product or tool can be easily integrated into the district’s existing systems. In order to do this in a truly meaningful way to support outcomes it requires going beyond basic integrations like Single Sign-On (SSO) and instead focusing on next-generation interoperability. This post, the second in the “AllHere Explained” series, delves deeper into the issue of Next Generation interoperability and describes how AllHere achieves this with Ed™, a pioneering AI-fueled, learning acceleration platform created in partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District. The challenge of interoperability Interoperability refers to the ability of two or more systems to be able to work together to exchange information meaningfully and accurately in order to produce useful results. Interoperability is always a fundamental consideration in AllHere’s work. AllHere’s customers typically use many different systems for instruction and operations – including some that contain critical or sensitive data. Decision-makers at these organizations require students and families to accomplish multiple tasks across these systems to make a meaningful – or even a mission-critical – impact on student outcomes a reality. For example, to manage learning recovery, school districts have needed to rapidly ensure adherence to plans for digital tool usage. This may look like 15 minutes of daily usage in one tool, 45 minutes of weekly usage in another, and daily 5-to-10 question skills-practice drills in yet another. The plan may give hundreds of thousands of users, from students to families, access to different learning paths that take the recommendations of these tools and the student’s current assessment and academic progress data into account. This creates an acute challenge for instructional and technology governance teams. Tracking which student is using which tools and how often, and whether the work that they are doing in each tool meets the student at their level of proficiency in each skill; and tracking this across thousands (2,500, on average) of tools and thousands of users becomes an exceptionally complex problem. In order to facilitate learning acceleration, instructional and technology governance teams must ensure that users have access to precision-paths within the tools they’re working with, that are adapting at the student’s level of proficiency, and that those experiences are threaded between tools to relieve the cognitive load caused by navigating so many different digital tools, environments, and interfaces. This challenge grows exceptionally with organizational scale. As the number of digital tools grows, so does the number of potential failures - underutilization of certain tools, poor matches between student asset/strength/need and the tools they are using, and extremely variable levels of quality. Ed was created through a public-private partnership between AllHere and the Los Angeles Unified School District. During the development process, unique tools were incorporated within the platform specifically designed to help instructional and data teams solve the challenges noted above. Ed’s Next Generation interoperability When developing Ed, AllHere created a “Next Generation Interoperability” framework which tightly integrates the skills-to-proficient process across top-tier digital tools (those with independent evidence of efficacy, engaging experiences that are multi-modal for different grade levels, and that are able to be used across multiple devices and mapped to skill levels). When designing Ed’s approach to interoperability, there were three objectives: Introduce innovation to interoperability beyond Single Sign-On Capture missing context across tools and make it available to better orchestrate students’ learning experiences Build intuitive, engaging tools for students to meet prescribed adherence/utilization goals. Instead of defining interoperability as being able to log into an individual tool, AllHere created Next Generation interoperability in which a potential user in Ed accesses an environment of tools. These tools have been mapped to a student’s specific skill levels and re-mapped into adaptive experiences, guiding the student to precision levels of next-step remediation or acceleration on a single screen - no more, no less. Every student’s experience with the tools is orchestrated in a single environment. The justifications that undergird each next-prompted action within the environment are individualized and impact-focused, creating a “school of one” which is constantly being refined by metadata on how completion of those activities move the student closer to their best levels of performance. Recording these justifications and the impact that individual learning activities in this environment are having on students’ learning outcomes prompts instructional and technology governance teams to continually consider the necessity and proportionality of their procurement decisions. They can achieve consolidation by considering the utilization of tools in the environment and the relationship between utilization and student outcomes. The output of that approach to next-generation interoperability is captured in the Ed Dashboard, making it available to instructional and technology governance teams for review. With Ed, at any point, a decision maker can understand not just who has access to what tools, but also why a student received ultra-personalized skill practice activities - with all of the context that went into the decision. This is advantageous because students have access to thousands of tools each day. By understanding why students received certain activities, and the impact those activities had on the student’s progress – and having this data for each of those thousands of tools – decision-makers can better understand which tools are having the greatest impact on student success. AllHere believes purposeful interoperability is a necessity. Purposefully focusing on how the thousands of tools and thousands of pieces of data available within a school or district learning system can be used together to achieve the best outcomes for each individual student helps students accelerate their learning. It is one of the many ways in which AllHere is able to provide an ecosystem of support to schools, districts, and their students.

  • Responsible AI: Ensuring Safety at AllHere

    AllHere Explained #3 As edtech companies continue to integrate AI into their offerings, it is important for them to ensure it is being used responsibly. There are various concerns surrounding AI’s use in education, including student data and privacy, inappropriate content, spreading misinformation, and bias amplification. This post, the third in the “AllHere Explained” series, helps shed light on responsible AI and describes how AllHere ensures this with Ed™, a pioneering AI-fueled, learning acceleration platform created in partnership with the Los Angeles Unified School District. What is responsible AI? Responsible AI is the idea of ethical and accountable AI. It is one of The Software & Information Industry Association’s (SIIA) policy priorities in 2024.  The organization supports “policies designed to foster trustworthy and responsible AI practices, including the mitigation of unintentional bias in algorithms and training data,” as well as “industry-led efforts to raise the bar on responsible AI development and use.” AllHere’s programs were developed using research and consultations with diverse communities, stakeholders and domain experts. They follow strict processes and controls to protect student data privacy. When AllHere creates an AI-fueled chatbot for a school or district, it undergoes pre-deployment testing, risk identification and mitigation, and ongoing monitoring to demonstrate that it is safe and effective based on its intended use. Ed™’s safe and effective system Built on AllHere’s award-winning platform, Ed™ was created using an approach where AI capabilities such as prediction quality and the machine learning process were prioritized from the outset. Instead of treating AI as an add-on or enhancement, AllHere focused on leveraging AI technologies as the primary driver of innovation for Ed™ from the conception phase. All along the development phases, AllHere has followed the strictest guidelines for responsible innovation and relentlessly tested Ed™. Here are 10 examples on how AllHere ensured Ed™ demonstrates responsible AI. ●       Activate and control AI in a “walled garden”: Ed™ offers a secure, real-time, multi-modal data foundation that integrates structured, unstructured, real-time/streaming, and other data into a single data lake. This data lake prioritizes data protection and long-term sustainable solutions. ●       Tested scenarios: AllHere examined and evaluated AI-driven activity and its consequences before enacting it. ●       Researched and evidence-based tools: Ed™ incorporates only the highest-quality, research, evidence-based, and district-approved tools that have been proven to be effective in meeting the needs of students, including diverse learners such as English learners and students with special needs. As the foundation for Ed™’s instruction, this carefully curated cohort of industry-leading tools goes beyond a repository approach to focusing on accelerating learning by targeting individual students’ needs, and they represent the best in engaging, interactive lessons that promote critical thinking and personalized learning and practice in the critical areas of literacy, numeracy, and science. ●       Emphasize and employ a rigorous human-in-the loop governance framework: AllHere can pinpoint when and how humans are embedded in decision-making. We conduct frequent, structured reviews and audits to assess Ed™’s systems impact, fairness, and safety, ensuring that it meets the highest standards of responsibility and transparency. Our dynamic governance model allows us to swiftly adapt to new insights, societal expectations and regulatory changes. ●       Human-centered: Ed™ amplifies what people do; it does not replace them. It enhances and assists educational practices at every level. AI does not replace teachers, it helps them provide personalized support to students at scale. ●       Built with strict processes and controls: This includes protecting student data, security against adversarial attacks, and the masking of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) data throughout model development and the deployment life cycle. Additionally, Ed™ is compliant with FERPA and other data protection regulations. ●       Built with a focus on equity and mitigating bias: AllHere believes it’s important for AI to reflect the communities it serves. Ed™ is built by a diverse group of individuals with different backgrounds, experiences, races, languages and cultures to be representative of the way school districts look. ●       Informed and involved educators, families, and students: We’ve prioritized informing and involving educational constituents so they are prepared to use AI to fit specific teaching, learning, and family engagement needs. ●       Developed from consultation: Ed™ was evaluated by diverse communities, stakeholders, and domain experts to identify concerns, risks, and potential impacts of the system. AllHere believes responsible AI is vital as a lot of research and development of Ed™ focused on addressing context and enhancing trust and safety. We’ve done deep research that focuses Ed™ in on always adapting to context (the individual learner, variabilities in instructional approaches, what assets and differences families and students have). Ed™ operates as a ‘school of one,’ making it flexible and extendable to the district to meet each student’s, family’s, and educator’s particular needs.
