Role of Artificial Intelligence to Redefine and Reshape the Education System

In the last few years, artificial intelligence has changed our lives for the better in every sphere we can imagine. From the first-person shooter games like Far Cry to social networking sites like Facebook recommending us friends that we might know or even the smart home appliances that make our tasks easier, virtually every field has benefited from the advantages of artificial intelligence.

Probably, one field in which AI hasn’t made an impact on is the education sector; but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it won’t. Advancements in AI technology is showing early signs of how it can change the entire learning process. Most classrooms in the world are still using traditional teaching methods instead of the modern educational technologies. Adoption of Artificial Technology in classrooms can cause transformations in learning which were unimaginable in the past.

Here are some of the ways in which AI can redefine and reshape how students learn worldwide:

Record and analyze student performance data

Adoption of AI helps to keep a record of student’s performance data and their gradual progress. With the help of Artificial Intelligence’s “learning analytics,” educators will be able to analyze those student datas and provide requisite suggestions to help them progress. This can radically help the tutors to find the areas in which the students are struggling, understand their pace of learning and monitor their progress rate.

A less daunting trial and error method in place

For most students, the idea of facing failure and dealing with it is a daunting prospect. An AI based intelligent computer has a much more suitable system in place to deal with trial and error. This way students have the scope of learning in a judgement-free environment that offers helpful solutions from the AI tutors. Artificial intelligence has the most efficient system in place concerning trial and error.

Help teachers find the gaps in their teaching method

Most classrooms worldwide use traditional teaching technique i.e., a one-size-fits-all method. But they fail to realize that every student learns at a different pace and may have a different rate of progress. Artificial intelligence prioritizes personalized learning wherein, the needs of every individual are identified and taken into consideration. Through AI’s machine learning algorithm, it helps teachers to find the gap in their teaching methods and point out the areas in which students are struggling.

Customizing learning content according to individual needs

Traditionally, textbooks and other learning materials are printed in countless numbers, catering to every average student across the world. Artificial Intelligence goes beyond the traditional boundary by customizing learning materials that are tailored in accordance to the specific courses and students. It creates custom textbooks by analyzing the course syllabus and materials provided by the institution.

Makes learning interesting

Let’s face it, traditional education has become boring and less engaging throughout the years as there is a complete mismatch between how students are taught and how their brain works. AI encourages a much more interactive and engaging way of learning to increase student’s motivation to learn. AI enables e-learning that helps students learn better, retain their knowledge and increase their curiosity to know more about the subject.

Automate the entire grading process

From high school to college graduation, grading is an integral part of most education systems. Teachers spend a considerable amount of their time and effort in the grading process which can be used otherwise in some other areas. This tedious task can be removed with the help of artificial intelligence’s automatic grading process, helping teachers to focus more on the in-class activities.

What the future of education with Artificial Intelligence looks like?

Despite its unmatched advantages, AI cannot replace teachers in a classroom as it’s an extremely convoluted social interaction process. Artificial Intelligence plays the role of an assistant to a teacher to make them better at their job instead of replacing them. As more and more universities and colleges adopt AI into their courses and curriculums, the future of education looks bright and secured.
