AI in EdTech: Making Classrooms SmarterBy CIOAdvisor Apac | Tuesday, March 26, 2019
Today, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and its applications offer smart machines like learning, processing, speech recognition, and data pattern identification in most industries. In the education industry, AI supports certain characteristics such as individual learning, additional education facilities, evaluation for education, and student involvement. Although AI is now in its primitive stage in education, it is disrupting the educational means.
Machine learning and natural learning are the two main AI-powered technologies that change the education sector; it supports the monitoring of student capabilities and enhances the learning process in accordance with student needs. AI in education focuses more on individual learning to help students get to grips with the subject. For this purpose, AI provides digital devices such as smartphones, Wearable devices, tablets, and software tool integrated with AR and virtual reality to all grades.
With the support of AI applications, homework grading and tests can be difficult work for large lecture courses in educational institutions. Even in lower grades, teachers find that grading takes a considerable time, time to interact with students, to prepare for classes or to develop a profession. From kindergarten to high school, the use of a greater degree of individualized learning is one of the key ways artificial intelligence impacts education. Some of this has already occurred through an increasing number of adaptive programs, games, and software. These systems meet the needs of the student as well as the teacher, emphasize particular subjects, repeat things the students did not master, and help them generally work in their own speed.

Unfortunately, human tutors cannot offer education as a machine. Therefore, the future is expected to see more virtual classrooms and machine tutors in schools. Certain artificial intelligence-based tutoring programs already exist and can help students in fundamental mathematics and writing. Teachers will complement AI lessons, assist struggling students, and provide students with human interaction and practical experience. Technology in many ways already leads to changes in the school, especially in schools that are online or that embrace the model of a rolling classroom.
Students can learn from all over the world at any time through AI systems and, with such drastic transformation taking place in some classroom courses, AI can in some instances change the duties and responsibilities of teachers. Although AI-led educational programs are already helping students with fundamental skills, they will offer students a wider range of services as the programs grow, and developers continue to innovate.
