The Role of Artificial Intelligence in the Education of Tomorrow
AI or artificial intelligence might sound like eerie machinery ready to take over the world. However, even if it sounds like something from the far far future, it is actually quite common in various technologies today. We are often working, or watching movies and TV shows on the internet without even realizing that we might be exposed to AI at that very moment. Creating intelligent systems with human-like “behavior” in the field of computer science that simply keeps developing and growing. But how will AI actually affect the future? Will it be present in our everyday lives? Let’s find out!
One of the possibilities for the application of AI systems would be incorporating them into the education systems. The truth be told, educational systems around the world are still far from perfect. By implementing AI into educational systems, each student could be individually accessed. With this kind of analysis or assessment, every single student could get customized education according to the individual needs and possibilities.
AI in Grading Systems
Incorporating AI systems in grading systems would be one of the most objective ways to grade students. In fact, some schools in China are already using similar smart algorithms to grade their students. This decreases the possibility of subjective grading in teachers, and it would also decrease plagiarism and cheating.
If smart algorithms and AI systems could access one’s abilities, interests, and needs that could mean that it should be able to predict the best possible career path for an individual. Imagine the possibilities behind that. The future students would know what kind of lecturing, subjects, and practice suits them, and it would make it easier for them to focus on other things. That is why this kind of personal approach would be more fruitful. AI systems could gather all the relevant students’ information and help predict the best career path for anyone.
Methodology in Learning
Smart systems might be able to access a student’s learning abilities or disabilities and help create the best teaching methods according to those factors. Some students respond better to simply reading, while others respond better to some kind of visual stimuli. If smart systems could determine the best-personalized methodology for educational purposes, it could lead to a whole new way of learning. This would help students with learning disabilities gain skills in an easy way and even apply them in the real world.
AI in Course Syllabus and Exams
Smart systems will be able to gather information and create top-quality content for classes and courses easily and quickly. And not only that, these AI systems will be able to create the best possible way to test the students via the exams composed by analyzing the entire syllabus. This way, the teachers would have more time on their hands to work on some other aspects of their lecturing such as the performance of their students or even their behavior.
Smart Schools and IoT
Developing smart schools and incorporating AI tutors into the education system would be beneficial in many ways. First of all, monitoring students’ behavior, progress, and preparing them for further studies would be much easier with the Internet of Things. With this kind of technology, all sorts of gadgets and devices could be connected in order to communicate with each other. Everything from monitoring class attendance with facial recognition, grades and behavior will be much easier and available to both teachers and parents.
