Intelligence has created a significant influence in our lives. We have already
discussed about that in our last blog. Considering the fast progress it has
made so far, its application will no longer be limited only to virtual bots
& facilitators. Having said that, we
are going to witness its imprint over large demographics in the field of
education. It definitely has unlimited potential & unprecedented opportunities
to explore in the educational space.
Let us look at some possibilities that we can expect Al to alter the education industry in the coming time.
Monitor & assess Students – Identifying strengths & weaknesses of individual student & working on developing the skills is what makes an effective teacher. With artificial intelligence, teachers will be able to monitor the progress of each student automatically. This can prove effective for classrooms in multiple ways like :
Unbiased & justified grading system – With kids getting smarter with internet & technology, it is going to be tougher for teachers to grade them on skills & IQ due to the highly competitive classrooms. A need for some automated grading system will soon become a necessity. Al can digitize & automate the grading & assessing process for classroom teachers.
Organize teaching process – Al will allow teachers to regulate the academic curriculum depending on the learning ability of the students. Evaluating further, teachers can give authentic & timely feedbacks to the students which can motivate them to grow in the weak areas.
2. Optimize administrative process – Artificial intelligence is here to take a step further to the existing institute management systems. With its application like machine learning & data integration, all the administrative processes can become faster & easier. Complex algorithms integrated with data will create astonishing solutions for the administrative problems with very less input requirements.
3. Accelerate learning process – Conventional learning processes included very limited resource like teachers, books, tutors & parents. But times are changing with the internet wave. Students can find answers to all their questions using Google. Today with artificial intelligence, this process can be made user friendly even further. Special learning programs can be created by artificial intelligence based on the curriculum & learning ability.
4. Enhance individual assisting experience – Focus on personalized learning has been more recently. Grasping ability of each student is different so the methods of learning cannot be same for each one. Artificial intelligence can smartly design specialized applications & software based on their understanding & learning capacity. Virtual tutors for assistance can be useful for students for a better learning. Students can learn at their own comfort & pace with these specialized learning resources.
5. Digitize & smarten up institutes – Applications of artificial intelligence are not just limited to classrooms. At macro level, it can digitize the entire institute by digitally interconnecting all the institutional process for all stake holders.
As suggested by the Artificial Intelligence Market in the US Education Sector 2017-2021 report, AI in education will grow by 47.50% during 2017-2021. These were just a few out of those boundless opportunities we will onlook as we move forward after the advent of artificial intelligence. The implication is that the determinism of artificial intelligence should be universally accepted for a brighter education ecosystem.
