Use of AI in the Education Sector

Identifying classroom weakness:

  • AI can help us understand the mood or ease of students during any lectures either delivered online or offline, by using Gesture Recognition Technology. Today’s AI-powered smart devices can read the facial expressions or gestures of the student and uses them to know if the student is struggling to understand the key points of the lessons. After recognition, it can inform the instructor to alter the delivery or re-teach the material so that the student can follow up easily.
  • AI can complement the work of a teacher in a classroom by monitoring all students at once. By knowing the strong and weak zones of a student, a teacher can precisely focus on the things required.
  • It will make teachers more accountable for their work by continuous monitoring and adhering to some of the best teaching principles to follow.

Giving teachers a lesson:

  • When teachers teach within a limited scope, many things remain out of understanding. Thanks to AI, now teachers have that comprehensive information, available at their fingertips and in real-time. Smart devices, powered with AI can automatically suggest the content to be taught.

Creating smart content for the students:

  • Learning some new content updates — Teachers get to generate learning content and even update them regularly with AI. It helps to keep the information updated all the time.
  • Information visualization — Visualization, simulation, and web-centric study needs are some of the different means to procure information. Only AI can power these sources. Modern technologies like AR/VR are helping create more interactive sessions with inclusion of AI.
  • Digital lessons — AI is here to help generate some of the study guides, bite-sized learning, digital textbooks, and more, within the same framework related to digital learning.
  • There is a ground-breaking application of AI that has already been adopted by educational bodies — AI Voice Assistants. This includes Google Assistant, Cortana from Microsoft, Apple’s Siri and Alexa from Amazon. These voice assistants help students to converse directly with the educational material available digitally, that too without any involvement of their teacher.

Focusing on Universal Access:

  • Thanks to AI Voice Recognition and Speech to-Text tools that allow the student to have real-time subtitles for everything that the teacher is going to say throughout the session.
  • Students now have access to study material of any language. Scripts-based AI tools are advancing in translating anything in any format into the required language scripts.
  • It helps in channeling some new possibilities for all the students, who are willing to learn at multiple levels and would love to learn subjects unavailable in school.
  • Even if they are sick and absent from school, it won’t stop them from gaining knowledge at their own pace and time later on.
  • AI has worked hard to break the silos between schools and traditional grade levels.

Dealing with personalized learning:

  • It helps in highlighting some of the specified topics that students are mostly weak in and repeating the subjects that they failed to master, like others in the class.

Dealing with task automation:

  • Tutors also organize materials and resources for lecturers and manage teaching materials as well. To help them cover so many works, AI is a friendly gesture.
  • Prominent institutions struggle and put a lot of resources into selecting the right student to join them. AI can help process the data of millions, develop personalized tests and find the right candidate automatically. Admissions and enrollment processes can also be done with AI in the future and its full potential is yet to be out.

The final say:
