Knowledge distillation is one of the methods for model compression, and existing knowledge distillation techniques focus on how to improve the distillation algorithm so as to enhance the distillation efficiency. This paper introduces dynamic incremental learning into knowledge distillation and proposes a distillation strategy for education distillation. Specifically, it is proposed to take fragmented student models divided from the complete student model as lower-grade models. As the grade level rises, fragmented student models deepen in conjunction with designed teaching reference layers, while learning and distilling from more teacher models. By moving from lower to higher grades, fragmented student models were gradually integrated into a complete target student model, and the performance of the student models gradually improved from lower to higher grades of the stage. Education distillation strategies combined with distillation algorithms outperform the results of single distillation algorithms on the public dataset CIFAR100,Caltech256, Food-101 dataset.
