AI in education

I think it’s pretty widely accepted that the education system needs help. The current time in history serves as an experimentation phase where many people are finding creative solutions to the problems faced in education. AI is serving as a tool to innovate and provide some big picture solution to those problems.

Here are some benefits I see coming from AI in education.

Adaptive learning: technology used to assign human or digital resources to learners based on their unique needs. If you’re more of a visual learner, Khan Academy could be a great resource, if you prefer written classics are your go to. Improve student performance and satisfaction.

Individualized learning: the pace of learning is adjusted to meet the needs of individual students. No more being tied back to the slowest person in your course, or even being pulled along to flounder in concepts you hardly understand. This will result in reduced time to learn new concepts when it’s tailored to your style.

Competency-based learning: learners advance through a learning pathway based on their ability to demonstrate competency, including the application and creation of knowledge along with skills and dispositions. Remeber and regurgitate is one the way out. There is nothing more discouraging than having students’ claim master of a subject when the truth couldn’t be farther from the truth.

The potential for AI in the classroom is just beginning. But as AI distinguishes the learning styles of students I predict we will begin seeing some of the above results.

As I’ve been studying the topic I’ve found some great articles on the topic.
