Recent AI developments have drastically changed nearly every industry. The Education industry is mainly one of the sectors that offer the phenomenal potential for implementing Artificial Intelligence in its operations. AI has transformed the academic environment and made it more accessible, convenient, and personalized for students around the globe. According to a recent study by E-school News, the implementation of AI in the education sector will grow by 47.5% in 2021.
To put it concisely, here are four ways how Artificial Intelligence is personalizing and transforming the education industry:
1. Personalized Learning Experience
Today, with the help of big data analytics and AI, personalized learning experiences can be designed for students. As a result, each student will be able to learn and get a unique educational experience that is totally customized to his learning abilities. That will encourage students to study smart and keep them engaged with the courses. It will also help to overcome the challenges of disengaged students or high dropout rates.
Likewise, AI-based personalized learning systems could guide instructors to fully understand each student’s learning ability and style –helping them tailor their teaching skills based on their progress in the course. Moreover, with the implementation of chatbots, institutions will be better able to answer all student-related queries in their respective areas of interest. This big data pool will enable institutions to develop creative, innovative programs to enhance students’ overall educational journey.
2. Inclusion of Smart Content
The notion of intellectual content is a hot topic these days. The invention of robotic processes to produce digital content with the same level of effectiveness and personalization as a human instructor has grabbed educational institutions’ attention. This concept has already paved its way in classrooms where AI is used for digitizing textbook content. It has also enabled personalized digital learning interfaces that cater to students of all grades and ages.
One of the top practical implementations of this concept is Cram101. This technique uses AI to modify the textbook content into a brief study guide highlighting the gist of a chapter that is easy to understand by every student. It also creates quiz sessions and flashcards for students to prepare themselves for exams.
3. Automated Administrative Tasks
By now, we know that AI has enormous potential in providing opportunities in accelerating and automating cumbersome administrative tasks. For example, it benefits educational admins and professors by grading homework and evaluating students’ performance in different courses. This automated grading technique gives professors more time to interact, understand and respond to every student individually. Looking ahead, since AI is experiencing a constant boom, software developers may come up with automated ways to grade long essay-type assignments as well soon. AI is, therefore, all set to automate the long admission process for institutions, thereby expediting the necessary processing and classification of paperwork.
4. Personalized Smart Tutoring
Do you remember when students had to wait long hours to take personalized teachers’ guidance during their office hours or had to wait for their emails they hardly replied to? AI has largely solved this problem. AI has rolled out an intelligent tutoring system that uses individual student data, caters to their specific issues, and gives feedback related to a course. One such practical implementation of this technology is Carnegie Learning. However, this AI tool is still in its nascent phase. Soon, it will be fully equipped with more advanced features that will fulfill the educational requirements of students just like a human professor but in a more efficient way.
Artificial intelligence has a lot to offer with its compelling progress to revolutionize the education system around the globe. Technology has enabled institutions to develop a whole personalized learning experience that caters to the individual needs of every student. Artificial intelligence caters to individual students’ educational requirements with intelligent content and gives personalized feedback on their progress. Lastly, AI has provided opportunities for accelerating administrative tasks by automating the admission process and grading system, which will help save billions of dollars for education institutes.
