Artificial intelligence or AI is the new normal in digital space. These days the growth of AI is way quicker than our ability to adapt to it. Rapidly shaping the technology of the future, spreading quickly & becoming an integral part of a variety of industries and taking up jobs or tasks that earlier relied either partially or completely on human interference and completing them in half the time through the process of automation.
AI, in simple layman's terms, is referred to as a field that combines computer science and sets of data for efficient problem-solving. Various technological surveys and reports over the past couple of years suggest that Artificial intelligence is here to stay in the long run.
But since the sudden emergence of ChatGPT in 2022, there has been a wave of polarizing opinions and discussions regarding the functional accuracy of AI and the potential dangers it might hold for the future; especially the considerable impact it might have on the human workforce. However, even the hard-core cerebral purists could not ignore the arrival of artificial intelligence and its influence on mankind.
AI is revolutionizing every industry where the human mind vigorously thrives; Information Technology, Finance, Transportation, Manufacturing, Travel, Gaming, and even Fashion and Entertainment; Now, it has smoothly found its way into what is considered the mother of all industries; Education.
Over the past decade, and especially during years of the pandemic, the Edtech business has gone through a massive change. It has now transformed into a booming industry worldwide, which is estimated & valued to grow more than 452 billion by the end of 2028. And now with the advent of innovative AI chatbots like ChatGPT and other AI tools, reports suggest that it is going to get even bigger and better, bringing a huge transformation in the process of learning that is useful for both educators and learners alike.
Let us look at how AI can help educators,
The traditional format of learning always followed a “one size fits all” system where everybody is supposed to learn everything and process information in the same manner. There was no concept of customized learning. Since every child is unique and different, some kids lap it up quickly while others who can't follow tend to fall behind.
This is where AI creates a strategic shift so that everyone gets equal priority and attention; It can analyze student performance and create course materials that are customized according to the learning capacity and the adaptive nature of each student, therefore, boosting effective learning for everybody, which will ultimately lead to improvement in academic outcomes.
Bridge Knowledge gaps:
Artificial intelligence can be used as a tool for educators to track, assess, and analyze the students' performance and identify their real potential, recognize areas where they are falling short, take necessary steps for improvement, and close the skill gaps. Thus, helping educators to come up with innovative and engaging lesson plans that would meet all the needs of the students.
The advent of Artificial Intelligence has broken down the traditional infrastructure of the school system, and classrooms have become virtual, making them available to students from any corner of the world. AI also allows them to broaden their horizons the learn the subject of their choice; some of which are not even present in schools.
AI solutions and tools can take away the monotony of the classroom experience and learning can be transformed into a fun activity, enabling teachers to create a much better learning environment by combining and utilizing a variety of audio-visual course content, games, augmented reality, and virtual reality to improve & increase student engagement and motivate them to perform better.
AI tools allow teachers to create and update course content regularly in real-time and the students will be notified whenever new content is being added, hence keeping them in the loop to prepare for upcoming exams or tests.
Educators spend a lot of time on time-consuming, tedious tasks such as grading tests, & homework, planning lessons, and carrying out different administrative tasks, this takes away a lot of time that can be utilized to work with the students.
AI solutions can be integrated and used to manage time-consuming tasks such as checking homework, giving grades on tests and assignments, maintaining timely reports, creating presentations, and giving notes. Which will reduce a great deal of workload of the teachers. Therefore, they will get more time to focus on the progress of the students and provide more support.
By employing & implementing AI in the education system, teachers can get frequent and timely feedback from the students at the time of learning and hence understand their learning pattern, grasping capacity, and knowledge level of each student individually and recognize their objectives. Therefore, the teachers can customize and personalize the lesson plans to suit the needs of the students.
