AI Transforming Education Paradigm
Artificial intelligence becomes an increasing part of our daily lives, so it is definitely a part of all of education. The digital era has of course arrived. The sooner we know more it, the more likely we are to succeed.
One of the greatest challenges with regards to education is that people learn differently and at different rates. Every student does through the education system with differing levels of learning ability and aptitude. Some are better at “left brain” thinking with skills for analytical thought, while others are more skilled at “right brain” thinking with creative, literary, and communicative ability. There are some who are challenged in different ways with physical and mental disabilities. Further, there are skill sets that differ from one region of the world to another, facing challenges in re-learning new languages and alphabets. Technology makes it possible to connect in all areas by providing wonderful solutions made by the best brains.
With the power of machine learning based hyperpersonalization, AI systems are being used to develop a custom learning profile of each student. It is customized to get the training materials for each student based on their ability, preferred mode of learning, and experience. It is expected that by 2024, all education will be customised like this. They will have augmented intelligence assistance that provides a wide range of materials leveraging the same core curriculum, but cater to the specific needs of each student. These tools are expected to reach over $6 Billion in market size by 2024
This on demand digital content is also created with the help of AI and machine learning which is changing the way things are done in education. Textbooks now have their information broken down or condensed into smaller study guides, chapter summaries, flashcards, as well as short smart notes for better reading and understanding. Learning is getting paperless with time and soon there will be less or no use of hard copy textbooks for learning. Such systems will also have an online interactive interface which aids in feedback from the students to their professors. This will enable follow up in areas where they might be struggling or have not yet fully grasped.
In addition to customized materials, AI systems now augment tutoring with personal, conversational education assistants. These agents do answer questions from students, provide assistance with learning or assignment tasks, and reinforce concepts with additional materials that can help reinforce the curriculum. These assistants are also enhancing adaptive learning features so that each of the students can learn at their own pace or time frames.
Changing the process
Teachers with the help of AI, concentrate on building the minds of students . Instead of checking copies, they tailor the learning process for each individual student. So, artificial intelligence is indeed revolutionising the teaching-learning process in education.
Since the inception of the institution of education, the methods of teaching and the bond shared between learners and educators have evolved significantly. Teaching methods across the globe have become more structured to give better, more streamlined results. This transformation can be majorly attributed to the ongoing intervention of technology.
On the back of continuous technological advancement, we are witnessing a paradigm shift in the teaching-learning process. The relationship between educators and students is changing, where educators have become more approachable and much better at understanding their students’ perspectives.
This has indeed made AI a friend for all so we all must have an awareness of this wonderful concept that is here to stay. By understanding, we can make a better use of this great development.
For instance, Dan Ayoub, General Manager for Microsoft, says
“I expect we’ll see three things happen.
Others also agree to this.
The world has indeed changed for sure. We need to move with the changing world to fit in, be relevant and succeed. The choice is to fit in or perhaps fail in the new digital world.
So, we request everyone to embrace change as change is after all the only certainty in life.
The advantage is that this process in completely democratic and accessible to all. A person sitting in a village in India and Syria can learn from global leaders in the west. So, AI indicates the arrival of global education. Let us all embrace this digital revolution in education.
