Artificial Intelligence is now no longer a thought for the future. It has become a reality of today. In the last few years, it has been a part of a lot of spheres of our life and has added an impact to our day to day functioning. Everything from Instagram follow recommendations to appliances like Amazon Echo, it’s there everywhere to make our lives easier. And just like every other field, it has managed to influence the field of education.
1) Record and Analyze Student Performance: Taking artificial intelligence within the sphere of education would imply that a student’s performance and its record could be stored much better and, in a manner, where it could be analyzed. With the help of the artificial intelligence’s ‘learning analytics’ educators could analyze the student performances and give more customized help to them. This will be especially helpful to students who may struggle in class due to the pace of classes. The system could help them in getting help that is more suited to their comfort.
3) Help Teacher’s Find Pedagogy Gap: teaching often follows a method of one-size-fits all which may not actually be true. One way of teaching does not resonate with every student in the class, all of whom have different strengths and weaknesses, which need to be understood. Artificial intelligence has the ability to prioritize the need for upcoming personalized learning. In this case every student’s individual need can be identified and can be taken into account. Through the artificial intelligence’s machine learning algorithm, teachers can find gaps in their teaching methods which need to be addressed. This increases the scope of classroom spaces being more inclusive and accepting.
