The next few decades will be a time of massive change for the global education system. Artificial intelligence is already changing our lives, and it's also going to revolutionise how we learn. In this article, we'll look at how AI can improve the way we learn and teach—especially in 2023.
AI can make teaching more effective. It's clear that AI will help students learn better, but how will it affect the teachers? One way is by giving educators more time to focus on their students and less time on grading papers. Teachers are already overwhelmed with grading student assignments. It can take hours or days for a teacher to grade a single paper, especially if there are many papers from one student or class period.
With the help of AI, teachers will be able to spend less time worrying about grading and more time focusing on what matters: finding ways to help individual students improve in class.
Improving school administration
School administration is the process of managing and running a school. In schools, AI tools can be leveraged in the following departments so the administration can be run more effectively:
Finance - Administrators make financial plans for schools to ensure that all functions are working towards meeting rising academic standards with limited funding and resources. Specific AI tools can help alleviate the tasks for admins by reporting, monitoring and forecasting these critical tasks in real-time.
Human Resources - This includes the hiring and constant training of all faculty members, ensuring individual compliance with institution policies and evaluating work performance of every educator/teacher/administrator every semester or academic calendar.
Checking students' work
AI is especially useful in lightening the load for educators to check on a student's work. The same AI tool is just as useful to students as they can leverage AI to improve their writing and problem-solving skills, handing in better quality work to their lecturers or professors.
Examples of these tools include:
Grammar and spelling checker.
Factual accuracy checker.
Logical consistency checker.
Completeness checker (e.g., a checklist of required fields)
Formatting checker (e.g., to ensure that the document follows a specified style guide).
Using AI to improve teaching methods
Teachers can use AI to make lesson plans, plan for student assessment and evaluate student progress. They can also use it to assess student needs and plan for future learning.
For example, using artificial intelligence in the classroom will help teachers better understand each student's learning curve and give them better insight into what kind of support is needed at different stages of the learning process. This allows teachers to provide tailored feedback that helps students learn more effectively while also reducing stress on both sides.
More personalised education
AI technology can also help teachers personalise the learning experience for each student. AI technology can enable teachers to tailor their teaching style to each student's needs, creating a more customised learning environment for students. This is especially helpful for students who have trouble grasping certain concepts because it allows them to receive extra support from their teacher to improve their understanding of the subject.
Schools today can subscribe to a subject-agnostic AI-powered tutor for all their students who struggle in any subject. With AI, the student is able to receive detailed help in understanding what they're supposed to learn in class and why these concepts matter.
Students and teachers can work more quickly and effectively with the help of AI.
It's hard to imagine that students and teachers could work any more effectively than they do now. But with AI, their learning and teaching processes will become more efficient and seamless.
We're excited to see how AI will transform the classroom in the coming years. It's clear from the examples above that it could help students, teachers, and school administrators in many ways—and we can't wait for all of us to get there.
