Google’s ‘Teachable Machine’ is a web-based tool that allows users to create machine learning models without coding. It’s designed to be easy to use and allows users to train models to recognise images, sounds and poses using data provided by the user.

‘Teachable Machine’ can be used in a variety of educational settings. For example, students in science classes can use it to classify (plant) species from images, while music teachers can use it to analyse sound patterns. Art teachers can explore pattern recognition in paintings. Language teachers can study speech patterns.

Teachable Machine is freely accessible and does not require a subscription.

Personal observation: In the classroom, ‘Teachable Machine’ becomes a tool to bridge the gap between theoretical concepts and practical applications. Its application to different media inputs makes it a Swiss knife in the classroom.
