AI is Revolutionizing Education

“Our intelligence is what makes us human, and AI is an extension of that quality. ” – Yann LeCun Professor, New York University

There is no doubt that AI has made living and working easier. Smart refrigerators now have added artificial capabilities such as AI-equipped cameras to track food inventory and let you know what items you are low on.

The Amazon Alexa App on your phone has a reminder and alarms section to remind you about your next doctor’s appointment or you can say “Hey Siri” on your iPhone to “remind me about this appointment later’ or ask your phone to give you directions to the hotel you booked online a month ago.

And now AI is revolutionizing education. Teachers and students both benefit from the ways in which intelligent computer systems are making teaching and learning easier.

What is AI?

The general view of Artificial Intelligence or AI is a concept similar to that of weird science taken from a sci-fi movie. However, AI is more scientifically defined as an advanced form of a computer process which directs machines to behave or think like humans in actual situations. AI is concerned with the ability of computers and robots to do tasks usually performed by humans so as to replicate the intelligence of humans.

How is AI Revolutionizing Education

Personalized Education

AI powered systems can collect and analyze data from multiple sources and use big data to analyze systems to deliver insights and more efficient processes. This is being applied to education to drive efficiency, personalization and streamline administration tasks to transform the way we teach and learn.

The objective is not to replace teachers but to analyze how students learn, find out knowledge gaps and what a student does and does not know, identify weaknesses and strengths, produce smart content, set in place task automation, and deliver tutorials to students.

AI can enable teachers to evolve their teaching methods to focus on the particular needs of students to deliver personalized education. This transforms the way teachers do their job and the way students learn.

Simplifying Administrative Tasks

Teachers spend most of their time grading tests, checking homework, and giving feedback to students regarding their work. Intelligent computer systems are a big help in automating grading tasks so that educators can have more time with their students and focus on other activities.

Software providers are discovering better ways to grade the written answers and essays of students. AI is also used to automate the classification and processing of paperwork.

AI assists in making enrolment and admission processes easier and more efficient for school administrators.

Virtual learning Environment

The pandemic has put a focus on distance learning. This is especially true with AI empowering learning platforms that converts textbooks into digital counterparts making it possible for students to access these books remotely anytime and from anywhere.

This is most important for students who cannot physically attend classes or for foreign students whose local access to books is limited.

What is more is that these platforms are able to translate the learning materials, giving access to students who speak other languages.

Voice Assistants for Students

Another contribution of AI in education is the creation of devices that serve as intelligent voice assistants for students. These voice assistants can communicate with computer systems so as to provide automated teaching to students.

Because of this, a student no longer needs to wait for class hours or teacher availability before being able to ask questions about their lessons. With these voice assistants, students can ask questions and get ready answers or feedback in real time.

Takeaway Points:

  • AI is making a huge impact in the education industry, changing the way students learn and the way teachers teach.
  • AI is most helpful in automating administrative tasks that lighten the burden of educators in the processing and evaluating of student performance in tests.
  • Intelligent computer systems have changed the learning experience of students as they can now facilitate their own learning through voice assistants, smart content, and learning platforms. Students can access digital books or learning materials online.
  • AI can gather data that helps teachers to evaluate a student’s learning weakness and strengths.
  • AI has made distance or virtual learning possible.
