Education Technology Insights | Monday, June 03, 2019

FREMONT, CA: As learning is a continuous process of change, the education industry has been implementing various developing technologies recently, from the basic to higher level of teaching. Education technology makes use of AI, education hardware, and teaching software for the teachers and students and ensures better learning.

With the evolution of EdTech, AI has made both learning and teaching more convenient through the use of tablets, laptops, and cell phones in the classroom. Around 74 per cent of teachers consider teaching via technology a better technique than the traditional method, as it keeps students actively engaged. AI helps in the additional support that a student needs and escalates automation in the monotonous processes existing in the industry.

A classroom consists of a large number of students, so paying consistent attention to each student becomes difficult. Hence, a platform has been created for students to avail an AI robot companion who acts as a tutor and enhances educational opportunities. The customized robots use natural language processing (NLP) as a medium to communicate and help in word association as well as person-to-person interaction at different levels.

AI-driven software schedules meetings between teachers and parent remotely through online appointments to keep them updated regarding the student’s performances. The educator can utilize a personal chatbot for setting up meetings and video-calling, that serves as a relief for working parents who can monitor their children from afar.

In case of a medical emergency that renders the student incapable of traveling to the classroom, Artificial Intelligence technology helps in allowing the learner to follow lessons remotely from the house. In addition, certain robots can attend the classes pseudo-physically and converse with peers, helping the student keep up with the course via robotic mobility.

Chatbot technology can help in recording feedbacks about student performance and send it across to the parents and educators. The technology can also be used for online evaluation of term papers and other skill-development activities.
