7 Ways in Which Artificial Intelligence is Transforming Education Landscape

The introduction of artificial intelligence into the education industry has significantly helped students and teachers. From personalized learning, which uses AI to adapt teaching methods and materials to the needs of each student, to automated assessment, which relieves teachers of the tedious task of grading tests so they can spend more time working with students, to smart systems that are radically changing how students found and interpret data, the possibilities are limitless.

Aside from that, technology has modified the way educators teach; they can now use real world examples to help their students learn more effectively and quickly. If AI is deployed to its best potential, it has the potential to transform education. Isn’t it fascinating? Let’s take a closer look at a few of the most remarkable applications of artificial intelligence in education. In this post, we will examine how artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the education system and the benefits it brings.

Here are some statistics to help you understand artificial intelligence in the education.

  • In 2020, the market for AI in education will be worth over 1 billion dollars. Between 2021 and 2027, it is predicted to increase at a CAGR of more than 40%. (According to Global Market Insights)
  • By 2030, artificial intelligence in education is estimated to generate $25.7 billion in revenue. (Strategic and Predictive Intelligence)
  • According to studies, AI-powered education will be worth at least $5.8 billion by 2025, with the value increasing significantly in following years.

1. Customized education and AI-powered Assistants

AI can assist teachers in providing individualized learning to help students learn at their own pace. Artificial intelligence is already being used by certain well-known education platforms, such as Carnegie Learning, to provide customized programs. Technology can also facilitate the creation of personalized instructions suited to a specific student..

Also, students can access instructional materials without having to contact an instructor thanks to AI-powered assistants. For instance, Alexa is used by Arizona State University to assist students with routine campus responsibilities. Alexa can answer students’ questions and further direct them to more resources.

2. Learning in a Virtual Environment Without Language Barriers

Students can benefit from the use of AI technologies to improve their learning experience. The platform digitizes textbooks and allows students to access them from any device, at any time. This is advantageous for students who are unable to attend classes in person. AI can also help break Language barriers. One of the best features of AI systems is their ability to translate educational content into multiple languages. This will allow international students to study courses that are not offered in their home countries.

3. Creative and Smart Content

An AI-based software can efficiently handle and evaluate large amounts of data (in this scenario, diverse educational resources available on the internet) in order to provide students with relevant information. Students benefit from tailored cloud platforms such as Netex Learning’s, which also provide conferences, virtual training, and other education facilities.

4. Gamification of Content Using AI

Students are more likely to be engaged and motivated to learn when they participate in game-based activities. Institutions can use AI to integrate game elements into education in a variety of ways, such as creating a reward system in which students earn badges and experience points for completing assignments and progressing through levels of “accomplishment,” or creating a tournament framework in which students contend with their fellow mates on a leaderboard towards a fun challenge or goal.

Students will be encouraged to be active learners and acquire more information if they are given encouragement to study and grow. They will no longer regard learning as a tedious task, but rather as a source of interest and delight, better preparing children to engage in and succeed academically.

5. Automation of Grading and Other Tasks 

Analyzing homework and grading assignments consumes a significant amount of a teacher’s time that may be better spent preparing for class or instructing students. According to a Telegraph report, teachers spend 31% of their time organizing courses, grading tests, and doing administrative tasks. While it is undeniable that AI cannot totally replace a teacher, it can assist in tasks such as the assessment and grading of tests. AI can automate duties such as administrative work, evaluating papers, measuring learning patterns, and responding to general questions.  Using AI systems to automate manual tasks can give teachers more time to focus on teaching.

6. Enhanced Interaction and Faster Responses

Students often have to wait for a teacher’s response after asking their questions, even for days. This can be uncomfortable and ineffective if they need an answer instantly. On a daily basis, teachers and instructors are faced with many such queries from students. AI can assist students get solutions to their most frequently asked questions in seconds through support automation and conversational intelligence. This not only saves time for instructors, but it also saves time for students who are looking for answers. Many AI-based platforms are available where students can discuss topics and clear doubts. These platforms are a good method to connect with other peers and share information, which encourages engagement.

7. Automatic Curriculum Creation 

Through AI technologies, teachers will not need to create a curriculum from scratch and spend days searching for the necessary educational material. Instead, students will be able to access an online curriculum that adjust to their needs and weaknesses, reducing the workload on teachers.

Conclusion

Artificial intelligence has the potential to help us resolve some of the education sectors shortcomings and drawbacks. The possibilities for improving educational outcomes and accessibility are genuinely transformative. Today’s educational system combined with AI technology, is reinventing how students understand concepts and learns new information. We can soon see its impact in the educational landscape in the coming decades
