Artificial intelligence has been applied to education as early as the 1980s. Only now do we have the technology that supports AI in creating new tools to assist teachers and students alike. AI is seeping into the education systems at a faster rate worldwide, pushing the learning space beyond the boundaries of the classrooms.
A survey by Forbes has revealed that 47% of learning management tools will be enabled by AI capabilities and that these tools will reach over $6 billion in the market by 2024. China is leading in this field with billions invested in artificial intelligence. Chinese EdTech companies have advanced the vision of AI in education with their unique AI systems that use Knowledge space theory to acquire the knowledge state of individuals. China is followed by USA where AI start-ups have received $9.3 billion in venture funding in 2018. The growth in AI tech in these two countries will alone contribute over half of global AI education expenditure.
AI-assisted Education- A Plethora of Possibilities
AI enriched content
AI tools can be used to analyze the text, citations, detect plagiarism, and improve the quality of the content. The content can be published on social platforms based on the target audience and recent trends. The published information can be managed from time to time using AI.
A reinvention of traditional materials
In this digital era, a vast amount of information is available free of cost. Reinvent the learning materials by transforming the content of books and journals into a strong and appealing form to boost product sales. AI-assisted tools challenge traditional books to a winning fight.
AI is a collaboration between humans and computers for the betterment of the students. It empowers the teachers to teach more efficiently and successfully to prepare the students for a future that is driven by technology. Creative content with tools and automation, AI complements the curriculum while engaging the students in active participation and assessments.
Artificial intelligence is customizable and works to enrich the domain of concepts that a student understands by liquidating the topic into small portions of concepts and keep track of the knowledge level as well. It prompts the students to retain the material in their memory through immersive learning experiences, assessments, and quizzes that refresh the subject. AI is capable of providing granularity to a topic and assessing the student’s knowledge level based on their performance at a level that is impossible by a human.
AI beyond classrooms
Students who may need assistance in learning can use the AI tools for clarifications. It can support the students when they prepare for tests and homework. This takes the burden off parents who struggle to help their children with their work. AI can offer extended help tailored to the needs of individual students based on their learning patterns. Teachers’ lessons and notes can be converted to text by speech recognition and saved to study later.
AI-driven exploration tools help researchers find academic papers and content that is relevant to their study within a short period. Manually, it would have been a test of patience. AI can sift through a mass amount of data using algorithms and provide the readers with a more specific pool of data.
Self-paced AI assessments for the content of interest pay individual attention to every student for a better, personalized learning experience. The test of their understanding and knowledge on the topic brings a shift in the lesson plan and curriculum in such a way that it fills the knowledge gaps and cuts off repetitions. Prompt grading, feedback, and instant curriculum changes enable hyper-personalization.
AI-based virtual assistants
Virtual assistants are becoming the managers of many households, simplifying tasks, and follow-ups. Arizona State University gives many of its incoming college freshmen an Amazon Alexa to provide them with more timely and focused information about their campus needs. AI assistance plays a crucial role in making the published content accessible and available in a personalized, simple way. AI can read the consumption pattern of individuals and display content in a streamlined fashion. In this way, interaction with published content will get simpler through a reduction in human involvement.
Crossing all barriers
Students across the world can have access to educational content in their time frames through AI. Real-time translators that convert the data presented into languages that the student is comfortable with are also possible with the booming technological growth. Students with visual or hearing impairments or restricted mobility can access the classes from the comfort of their homes.
