Artificial intelligence (AI) was applied to education as early as the 1980s. Only now do we have the technology to support AI in the creation of new tools to assist teachers and students alike. AI is seeping into education systems worldwide at a rapid rate, thus pushing the learning space beyond classroom boundaries.
A survey by Forbes has revealed that by 2024, 47 percent of learning management tools will be enabled by AI capabilities, and by then, these tools may be estimated to be valued at over US$6 billion in the market. 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 the United States, where AI startups have received US$9.3 billion in venture funding in 2018. The growth in AI tech in these two countries will alone contribute to over half the global AI education expenditure.
AI-assisted Education- A Plethora of Possibilities
AI tools can be used to analyze text and citations, detect plagiarism, and improve content quality. Once the content is published on social platforms based on the target audience and recent trends, it can be managed from over time using AI.
A reinvention of traditional materials
In this digital era, a vast amount of information is available free of cost. Reinventing learning materials by transforming the contents of existing books and journals to be more impactful and appealing to target audiences can boost product sales.
AI is a collaboration between humans and computers for the betterment of the students. It empowers teachers to teach more efficiently and to successfully prepare students for a future driven by technology. AI complements existing curriculum using creative content with tools and automation and encourages active student participation in learning assessments.
Artificial intelligence is customizable and works to enrich the domain of concepts that students need to understand by transforming the subject matter into bite-sized concepts. It aids their knowledge absorption through immersive learning experiences, assessments, and quizzes that refresh the subject. AI is also capable of providing granularity to a topic and assessing students’ knowledge levels based on their performance, and it can do so in a manner that ordinary mortals will find well-nigh impossible to surpass.
AI beyond classrooms
Students requiring learning assistance can rely on AI tools for clarifications. AI can support students when they prepare for tests and homework. This takes the burden off parents who often struggle to help children in this regard. AI can also 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 for later study.
AI-driven exploration tools help researchers find academic papers and content relevant to their study within a short period. Manually, it often is a test of one’s patience. AI can sift through a massive amount of data using algorithms and provide 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 and more 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 knowledge gaps and minimizes or eliminates repetitions altogether. 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. The 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 published content accessible and available in a simple and personalized way. AI can read the consumption patterns of individuals and display relevant 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 students are comfortable with are also possible with the booming technological growth. Students with visual or hearing impairments or restricted mobility can access classes from the comfort of their homes.
