The AI tool, known as the Adaptive Learning System, has been implemented in Lakeside Primary School and Rosyth School, allowing teachers to identify students who need additional support in specific areas of mathematics.


Education Minister Chan Chun Sing announced that the success of the maths tool has paved the way for the deployment of more AI tools in schools as part of the EdTech Masterplan 2030. The Adaptive Learning System uses machine learning to provide personalised learning recommendations for each student based on their responses to questions and activities. It is integrated with the Singapore Student Learning Space, the national online learning platform for schools.


Teachers have praised the AI tools for helping them target individual student needs and freeing up more time to focus on students. Senior teacher Edmond Lee from Rosyth School mentioned that the AI system saves valuable time by automating the process of collating scores and identifying gaps in students' understanding before starting a new topic.

The AI-enabled Adaptive Learning System serves as a pre-learning tool, allowing students to practice questions related to upcoming topics before they are taught in class. Teachers can then use the feedback and data collected by the AI system to identify areas where students are struggling and tailor their lessons accordingly.


Mrs. Finella Goh, the principal of Lakeside Primary School, highlighted the benefit of AI in allowing students to learn at their own pace. The system enables teachers to meet students where they are and adjust the pace of their lessons accordingly.


Education Minister Chan Chun Sing emphasised that AI is a complementary tool that supports teachers in reinforcing concepts and guiding students through difficult problems. He also mentioned the importance of teaching AI literacy to students, preparing them for a technology-enabled future.


In addition to the deployment of AI tools, schools are incorporating AI literacy programs to introduce students to foundational learning in AI. Anderson Serangoon Junior College, for example, has partnered with AI Singapore to provide students with AI literacy courses and deepen their digital literacy and skills.
