Education Technology Insights | Friday, November 16, 2018

Fast-forwarding to 2030, students would have to be very skilled in critical thinking, creativity, and empathetic. It is nearly impossible to predict the future employment status accurately. The schools need to prepare the students for the next-gen world which will be dominated or ruled by intelligent machines. Students are now facing a more uncertain future than ever before since the industrial revolution. With the emerging technologies over the past few years, drastic changes in the education sector have been observed in which the way students are taught, and the way they interact with the teachers. Distance education has completely changed today. Online-classes have entirely closed the space between distance education and the regular classes. Numerous mobile applications, websites, and blogs are providing a lot of guidance as free online education for everyone.

Education is the field where AI is playing a crucial role in transforming the experience of teaching and learning. The main problem with the standard education system is that not every student can grasp the knowledge at the same time. In case the teacher slows down in being able to cater to the learning needs of the students, the time slot to finish the syllabus comes into the picture. All these issues can be reduced by using e-learning method for comfortable and friendly learning of the subjects. AI can further take this strategy to the next level by applying a high level of personalized experiences and emphasizing on the contents and allowing the students to learn seamlessly.

Today, assignments are wholly digitalized. Due to this disruptive technology, a student can attend online tests at any time and any day, and thus, the results will be announced immediately after the examination. Students taking distance education can give their examination at their own place. Attendance management can be monitored and executed in an automated manner through AI. The main advantage of AI is its capability of creating digital learning interfaces, which provide digitized books and chat room facilities, and they are updated in real-time. In standard classrooms, students feel uneasy or embarrassing to ask questions as they don’t want to sound silly. With e-learning facility, students can ask questions on personalized platforms individually.
