The rise of technology in education over the last few years has been immense, to say the least. This is certainly the case if we consider the fact that technology has entered for good in our children’s classroom.
Within today’s classroom, for example, we find ourselves surrounded by devices such as smart boards, computers, laptops, tablets and phones, to name a few; utilities that are often integrated at the moment into teaching as well.
AI systems are being used to suit and personalize learning for each individual student. AI systems are being used to develop a custom learning profile of each student and customize the training materials for each student based on their ability, preferred mode of learning, and experience.
It is expected that by 2024, up to 47% of learning management tools will be enabled by AI capabilities. Rather than requiring teachers to create a single curriculum for all students, educators will have artificial intelligence assistance that provides a wide range of materials leveraging the same core curriculum but cater to the specific needs of each student.
In addition to customized materials, AI systems are being used to augment tutoring with personal, conversational education-like assistants. These conversational “tools” can answer questions from students, aid with learning or assignment tasks, and reinforce concepts with additional materials that can help reinforce the curriculum. These intelligent assistants are also enhancing adaptive learning features so that each of the students can learn at their own pace or time frames.
Educators are making increased use of voice assistants in the classroom environment. Voice assistants such as Amazon Alexa, Apple Siri, and Microsoft Cortana are giving students a chance to interact with educational material without the interaction of the teacher. These devices can be used at home or similar non-educational environment to provide conversational interaction with teaching material and additional educational assistance.
Many may hate A.I .in the classroom and many may love it. But, let’s see the advantages of AI and technology in the classroom:
In the not too distant future, you can expect that AI and machine learning will be a core part of all educational experiences. AI is starting to show its benefits and application to a wide range of educational needs, and the hope is that it will greatly improve overall learning outcomes for all.
Only time can tell the ultimate impact of AI in the education industry, but it is apparent that the changes will be at least major both for students and educators.
The traditional way of passing knowledge is probably coming to an end soon. This doesn’t mean that this is a threat for both sides, but we should see it as a progressive state of the situation in a constantly technologically evolving world. AI will help and give the solutions that education needed for decades such as meeting the majority of student’s needs and decreasing possibility for failure.
