We have repeatedly pointed out that artificial intelligence will transform all aspects of human life. Until now, artificial intelligence has had innovations in various fields. Interesting innovations such as automated parking lots, social networks, smart appliances and… are all examples of artificial intelligence applications. Today, it can be said that artificial intelligence is practically everywhere in the world, and very soon the world of education will experience drastic transformations including schools and universities. At present, in different parts of the world, different procedures have been adopted to integrate artificial intelligence with educational programs in schools and universities, and the field of education has undergone fundamental changes. With education through smartphones and tablets, most of the students are less likely to turn to books, and at the same time there are many online institutes around the world that offer different trainings on the Internet and create new opportunities for people to learn from different programs. Benefit from diversified opportunities without even leaving their homes. Our world today is constantly changing and new inventions will influence educational processes. Today, in this article, we are going to look at six ways in which artificial intelligence will transform the field of education. Lets have a look!
1. The Automated Scoring and More Leisure for Teachers
In modern education, teachers spend a lot of time on administrative tasks such as marking exams and grading students. With the help of technology, this can be done automatically and create more free time for teachers and students to deal with more important issues. Following the developments that have taken place in the field of education, the use of systems and software that can score and grade the answers and exams, as well as written articles of students, will be implemented in educational institutions. This feature will perform two actions; it will mark and grade the students’ written tasks, and eliminate any chance of objections about the same marking and grading due to possible elements of teachers’ bias. The school management department will be another area that will take over the process of automation and automation through artificial intelligence by processing and classifying administrative tasks.
2. Personalized Learning and Students’ Individual Needs
It may not be wrong to say that we live in an age of personalized service. From movie offers on sites like Netflix to YouTube ads and…, in a way, every new service we receive is personalized and tailored to our needs. Even retail businesses have become much more personalized with the help of artificial intelligence. Exactly the same way, artificial intelligence helps teachers to intelligently identify and address the needs of each individual from the beginning, rather than identifying students’ needs in the middle or even at the end, and taking measures to solve any problems. This gives teachers ample opportunity to identify and better understand students’ problems and to assist them appropriately. Softwares such as Brightspace Insights are able to anticipate students’ needs and behaviors and assist teachers in their teaching. Teachers can also create personalized learning programs for each student by accessing student information in advance. Instead of using a general approach to dealing with all students, the system focuses on and works on individual person’s strengths. Since machine learning and artificial intelligence are very good at identifying patterns that are out of the human eye, they also help the teacher to develop each student’s different talents by assigning different exercises and appropriate class lectures.
3. Artificial intelligence and Identifying Learning Gaps
Teachers usually have to set a certain speed for teaching different topics to cover the curriculum in a short time. This creates gaps in students’ learning and topics, and can sometimes lead to perplexity and confusion. Finally, schools and universities can solve such problems with the help of artificial intelligence technologies. Students can use a personal conversation in smart educational programs to express their problems and have immediate access to appropriate solutions and answers. These services can also help the teachers to maintain the speed of teaching and inform him / her of the existing educational gaps.
4. Using More Smart Content
Companies like Cram101 and JustThatFacts101 help students learn more effectively through artificial intelligence. For example, it converts textbook content into intelligible content or guide for students that includes multiple-choice quizzes, summaries of important chapters, highlights of important sections of the book, specific summaries for each chapter, etc. These support programs are created on platforms such as Amazon. This type of smart content has been used in a number of educational institutions and in addition a number of websites have used them to satisfy their users. “For us, smart content means creating an experience based on previous visitor behaviors,” explains EMU Coupon Content Manager. “This includes factors such as location, language, population, and device type.” In the academic context, this issue and concept includes learning relationships with digital learning settings and guidelines. Some of these platforms have interactive content, the ability to receive feedback, create exercises and complete evaluations. Teachers can easily take advantage of these platforms by creating customizable curricula and content that are easily accessible to students. As this type of smart content becomes smarter, innovations such as simulation and future evaluations will be integrated with these services.
5. Growth of Online Education
Artificial intelligence will make international borders virtually meaningless in the education process. Today, online education has developed and expanded much more than before. Recent studies show that more than six million American students are currently enrolled in distance education classes. As AI evolves in education, more and more people prefer to enroll in digital and online classes. Meanwhile, governments in developing countries are investing in artificial intelligence-based online education to enhance high-quality education in rural areas.
6. Role of Face Recognition
In Chinese schools, the use of face recognition services has been around for some time. In this way, other issues such as student ID, code, etc. are eliminated. In addition, face recognition cameras in classrooms analyze students’ faces every 30 seconds to see if they are paying attention to the lesson, and if not, the student’s parents and teacher are notified. Of course, this use of artificial intelligence is somewhat controversial and has been criticized by critics as a form of intrusive surveillance. Maybe not in this way, but we will soon see such services in schools around the world.
Conclusion: The Realm of Education; Definitely Changing
We are not saying that intelligent robots will soon replace teachers or that we will see superhumans intelligent training classes. But artificial intelligence and its capabilities will certainly help teachers to change the previously dysfunctional system and create a system in which students can learn faster, better and more effectively. Artificial intelligence will take on some of the teachers’ time-consuming tasks and give them more free time to address more important issues so that they can focus more on the students. In general, the education system will definitely change a lot in the coming years, and these changes will be in a positive direction.
