Artificial Intelligence and the Apocalypse:
Demystifying the Fear of Artificial Intelligence
The main objective of AI is to optimize routine processes, improving their speed and efficiency.
Regarding the great opportunities, AI tools open up to all sectors, including education.
Artificial intelligence in education (AIED) has opened up new opportunities and challenges in educational practices.
Despite its short history, AIEd is not just about transforming the way teachers can do their jobs, it is also about the way students learn.
Although its use is still shy in Brazil, a survey released by Pearson consultancy, at the end of 2019, makes it clear that students understand the importance of this technology.
Let us see below the main artificial intelligence tools that can or may be applied to improve the teaching-learning process.
Teachers not only teach, but also have a role in managing the classroom environment along with numerous organizational and administrative tasks, i.e. they spend part of their time correcting tests, evaluating homework, organizing resources and materials for their classes.
In the end, they spend too much time on non-didactic tasks, and this puts a strain on them. Artificial Intelligence will automate these tasks to give you more time to do your main teaching work without bothering with administrative tasks.
Tailoring learning based on the specific needs of each student has been a priority for educators for years, but AI will allow an impossible level of differentiation for teachers who need to manage 20 students in each class. Using AI, students now have a personalized approach to learning programs based on their own unique experiences and preferences. AI can adapt to each student's knowledge level, learning speed and desired goals so that they get the most out of their education. In addition, AI-powered solutions can analyze students' past learning histories, identify weaknesses, and offer better-suited courses for improvement, providing many opportunities for a personalized learning experience.
Educational classrooms can be made globally available to all students through AI tools, even those who are hearing or visually impaired or who speak different languages. This opens up new possibilities for students who need to learn at different levels, who want to learn a subject unavailable at their school, or who are sick and absent from school.
Smart Content Creation
Today AI can help teachers create intelligent content that makes teaching and learning more comfortable for them and students, respectively.
teaching the teacher
One thing that is important in education is that the teacher does not rely on his old residual knowledge. There are more facts they need to know and teach students as well. Not to mention the fact that they study and teach within a limited scope and there are many other things they can still learn.
With AI, teachers have comprehensive information available at their fingertips. This allows them to search for things they didn't know or improve their previous knowledge.
AIEd have the power to transform the education sector forever by addressing some of the most critical challenges it faces today.
Definitely, teachers, students and educational institutions benefit from the application of the AIEd. Learning becomes more personalized and teaching more efficient.
Although it is still in the early stages of implementation in the education market, as the AI industry expands and innovation is at the forefront, we will see better learning outcomes for all students and educators.
Finally, it is crucial to emphasize that AIEd is not just about implementing AI technology; it is an integration of the pedagogical, social, cultural and economic dimensions during the processes of technology application.
