How Do I Get Started?

You will need to create a free account with TeacherServer. Make sure you remember your password since it lacks an OAuth-type solution. That means you can’t log in with your Google Workspace or Microsoft 365 credentials.

Hot Tip: Use a free password management solution like Bitwarden or Keepass.

Discussion Questions

Some discussion questions to get you thinking:

  • How could these tools save you time in your daily teaching tasks?
  • What challenges might you face in implementing these tools in your classroom?
  • Are there any tools you wish existed that aren’t on the list?

Now that you’ve had a chance to explore these tools, here are a few of my favorites.

Tool #1: Tailor Your Texts with Precision

As a Language Arts teacher, finding text at the right lexile level can be a challenge. During an Elementary Technology Conference session, I relied on AI chatbots to create stories at grade level for Reciprocal Teaching practice.

The Lexile Score Adjuster on TeacherServer is a game-changer for differentiated instruction. This AI tool can generate a similar text at a higher or lower Lexile score. This makes providing reading materials matching each student’s reading level easier. You can simplify a complex text or challenge advanced readers with this tool and help you make sure that content you are teaching is reading accessible.

Tool #2: Spice Up Your Science Classes

Are you a science teacher? Give the Science Experiment Generator a try. It generates creative and safe science experiments for your classroom and takes the guesswork out of lab planning. You put in your grade level and topic and get a detailed experiment. This tool works for elementary to high school.

Here’s an example relying on grade 6 new science TEKS:

Tool #3: Master the 5E Model

No doubt, you have seen my other blog entries on the 5E Model. The 5E Model includes the following phases of learning:

  • Engage. Activities that capture the students’ attention, stimulate thinking. What’s more, they help students access prior knowledge, and focus on “how” or “why.” Phase of Learning: Surface Learning.
  • Explore. Enable students to explore ideas, alone or in groups. Provides time to think, plan, investigate, and organize information. Phase of Learning: Surface Learning.
  • Explain. Students get opportunities to connect their previous experiences. It also allows them to make conceptual sense of the main ideas of the topic under study. Phase of Learning: Deep Learning.
  • Elaborate. Students apply or extend previously introduced concepts and experiences to new situations. Phase of Learning: Transfer Learning.
  • Evaluate. Students with their teachers review and assess what they have learned and how they have learned it. It is a summative assessment. Phase of Learning: Transfer Learning.

TeacherServer will generate a 5E model lesson for you if you provide the grade level and topic, standard, or objective:

This tool helps you create daily, weekly, and unit lesson plans aligned with this popular teaching framework. It’s easy to miss the boat when it comes to addressing each element of the 5E model, but this tool can assist you in your planning.

Tool #4: Boost Your Students’ Vocabulary

If you are a K-3 teacher, you already know about the importance of a vocabulary program. It is a powerful high-effect instructional strategy. Vocabulary acquisition is the single most important factor in reading comprehension (source). TeacherServer has an amazing Vocabulary Builder that ggenerates exercises and activities to expand students’ vocabulary.

Like its other tools, you select your grade level and subject area. Then it provides you with a variety of engaging vocabulary-building activities. These can include any of the following:

  • Word game
  • Context-based exercise
  • Graphic organizer
  • Sentence completion

As an example, take a look at the sentence completion exercise below for a 12th grade math class:

After analyzing the data, we formed a _____ that the relationship between the variables was linear.

The graph of the function has an _______ at x = 2, which means the function approaches infinity as x approaches 2.

By ________the trend in the data, we can predict the stock market prices for the next quarter.

Based on the statistical analysis, we can ________ that there is a strong correlation between the two variables.

The graph of the quadratic function is a _______ that opens downward, indicating a maximum value at the vertex.

Another example includes creating a graphic organizer:

Create a graphic organizer with the following columns:

  • Vocabulary Term
  • Definition
  • Example Sentence
  • Context-Based Question

Sample directions for the activity include:

Ask students to complete the graphic organizer for each vocabulary term. Students should refer to the example sentences and context-based questions provided earlier. This activity helps students organize their thoughts and visualize the relationships between the vocabulary terms.

Tool #5: Phonics and Reading Comprehension Coach

The Phonics and Reading Comprehension Coach creates phonics exercises and generates reading tasks for specific grades. This is helpful when you are targeting key literacy skills such as:

  • letter-sound relationships
  • Blending
  • Advanced reading comprehension strategies

Consider using it for the creation of differentiated reading assignments or to make intervention materials for struggling readers.

BONUS: Streamline Your Grading Process

The Assignment Feedback generator assists you in getting a second opinion for grading. You submit an assignment along with the rubric. Then you receive detailed feedback and comments. It may save you some time in grading. TeacherServer relies on a local AI server. This means you get super fast responses that don’t compromise privacy.

Thank you for this resource. Other AI resources charge for their premium services which are similar to the ones offered by “Teacher Server” My question is, how are they making their money?

Miguel Guhlin July 8, 2024 - 8:23 am

Grace, this is a question that goes to the heart of AI use in education. At this point, my honest answer is, “I don’t know.” I can speculate, and only hope for correction:

Guess #1: Collecting Emails for Other Use
Users are required to create an account using their emails. This might be a way to collect emails via a useful service that can later be marketed to when there is a product for sale or to sell a list of educator emails.

Guess #2: Hooking Future Customers for Free
It may be that a new service will become available in the future, and this free service is a basic tier. The advanced tier will require subscription. There is mention of “upcoming introduction of agents, which will further enhance” TeacherServer’s capabilities. Free usage gets you in the door, but you’ll have to pay for the new features.

Guess #3: Totally Altruistic
Maybe TeacherServer is taking an approach like Canva for Education, where their business is paying for hosting the AI servers and they want to give back to the Community. It’s hard to tell since that isn’t explicitly stated on their WHY page at https://www.teacherserver.com/why.php

Their contact information is incomplete, so it definitely makes you wonder, “Who’s behind all this?” Who’s the person behind the curtain?

Guess #4: Alien AI
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Alien AI Powering Popular Education Site!
In a shocking twist that’s sent shockwaves through Silicon Valley and beyond, sources close to TeacherServer.com have revealed that the popular educational platform’s backend is powered by none other than an extraterrestrial artificial intelligence!
Codenamed “Zeta,” this alien supercomputer was reportedly discovered in a crashed UFO deep in the New Mexico desert. Government officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, claim that Zeta’s processing power makes our most advanced quantum computers look like pocket calculators.
“It’s like nothing we’ve ever seen,” whispered one wide-eyed engineer. “Zeta doesn’t just process information – it understands context, nuance, and even emotion in ways we can’t begin to fathom.”
TeacherServer.com’s meteoric rise in popularity suddenly makes sense. The site’s uncanny ability to tailor lessons to individual students, predict learning outcomes with 99.9% accuracy, and generate engaging content seemingly out of thin air had baffled experts for months.
But not everyone’s thrilled about this otherworldly development. Privacy advocates are up in arms, demanding to know if Zeta has access to student data. Meanwhile, rival ed-tech companies are crying foul, claiming unfair advantage.
TeacherServer.com’s CEO, Dr. Eliza Quantum, remained tight-lipped when cornered outside company headquarters. “We’re committed to providing the best possible learning experience for students worldwide,” she said, flashing a enigmatic smile. “As for our methods… well, let’s just say the truth is out there.”
As dawn breaks over Silicon Valley, one thing’s for certain: the education game has changed forever. With an alien AI at the helm, who knows what cosmic heights of learning we might achieve? Stay tuned, folks – this story’s only just beginning!

Or not.

With appreciation (and apologies to TeacherServer folks),
Miguel Guhlin
