The Increasing Role of Artificial Intelligence in Education

 

Blending education with technology doesn’t have its belongingness in future. It is very much a part of our current education scenario which is to be empowered further for the growth of the educational sector in its entirety.

The world is changing and so is the education system. Notebooks are finding their replacement with tablets and laptop. New technologies and software are reshaping the way we all were taught. The educational sphere is developing due to the impactful technology, which is bringing a multitude of adaptive learning platforms, paving their way inside the classroom.
In-spite the challenge of its being expensive and, Artificial Intelligence is proving to be a game changer in educational sphere causing transformation in the prevailing education policies which have been unimaginable in the past.

Let us have a look at how AI and its derivatives are progressively finding their way into the classrooms, and beyond.

Supporting in-class Teaching
The classrooms which have always inclined on the one-size-fits-all approach, aren’t able to cater to the needs of a large number of scholars learning together at a different pace. This is where Artificial Intelligence comes into the picture as a problem solver by providing machine learning algorithms. Such learning algorithms collect data and provide insights and suggestions to help teachers, bridge the gap between their teaching and problems the scholars face in each subject matter.

Creation of customised content
Traditional way of teaching has always been carried out using textbooks. The text books are made in accordance with a huge number of pupils with different calibre studying together. Artificial Intelligence has enabled the creation of customised content for pupils to empower the growth of an individual in a classroom.

Direct Feedback for students and teachers
While delivering a lecture in the classroom, students might not be clear with a concept which in turn can create a gap between what they read and what is being taught next in the classroom, in such a case Artificial Intelligence gives an opportunity to the teachers to have an insight to tailor made courses for students. The direct feedback can create a better environment for the students and teachers to learn and grow together.  

Trial and Error Friendly Learning
 Scoring bad grades and being called off in front of peers can be a daunting situation, making a child scared for trying and failing. This creates a pressure for all the students to excel every time, which isn’t possible. In AI, the grading and results are confined to the students also providing them with the tips to improve, creating a trial and error friendly learning.  

Student friendly software  
AI is all set for providing a student friendly software, where they can explore educational matter as per their convenience. Adaptive learning programs, games etc. have already made their way into learning which is easing the approach towards learning. Such systems respond to the requirements a learner has by putting emphasis on the topics that a learner hasn’t mastered, thus, developing a personalised pace.   These systems answer to the needs of the learner, emphasising more on certain topics, repeating things that students haven’t mastered, and generally helping students to work at their own pace, whatever that may be.
