Kerala School's Historic Leap with 'Iris' as India's First AI Teacher

In a groundbreaking stride for education, Thiruvananthapuram’s KTCT Higher Secondary School, backed by the Kaduvayil Thangal Charitable Trust, has introduced Iris, an extraordinary AI teacher crafted in collaboration with Makerlabs Edutech. The new idea brings India’s first humanoid robot teacher and it is a giant leap in the education system. Iris’s integration into the school’s curriculum aligns with the vision of the Atal Tinkering Lab (ATL) project, launched by NITI Aayog in 2021, aimed at enriching extracurricular pursuits within educational institutions.

Iris has everyone excited. Makerlabs posted a video on Instagram showing what the new teacher can do. It can answer tricky questions from subjects, help out with a friendly voice and even make learning fun as well as interactive. It looks like it is going to change the way students learn. Its mobility is ensured by equipped wheels, allowing it to move around the classroom effortlessly.

Makerlabs Edutech is proud of the new creation. The company said that Iris is a huge step forward. It will change how students learn, showing how dedicated they are to pushing limits and making more amazing things in the future.


However, it is yet to understand how much Iris will change education, but it gives a peek at what the future of learning might look like. If Iris does a good job, it could mean that AI is to play an important role in schools. It might help teachers and make learning better for students. The journey of Iris is not just about one school but could potentially change the way education is approached across the entire country.
