Technology of Artificial Intelligence in Education

The education sector has been changing rapidly in the last decade, affecting everyone involved- educational institutions, educators, students, parents, and companies that offer educational tools and services. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic also made a significant impact on this sector, opening a huge gap that needed to be filled. The need for advanced, smart tools has never been bigger, and it’s no wonder the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in education has been flourishing.

New technologies and AI tools have created a modern-day environment in the education sector and opened new doors for improved day-to-day operations. But, what exactly is the role of AI in education? And what can we expect to see in the future? We’ll answer these questions and more in the article below.

The Top AI Applications in Education

Let’s first take a look at the latest and most significant applications of AI in education, in different domains of this sector.

1. Teacher Tasks Automation

The number one application of AI in education is certainly in the domain of teacher tasks. Teachers have a lot on their plates, even when we exclude giving lectures and grading tests. 

Certain tasks take up a lot of their time and are repetitive on a daily basis. These tasks include:

  • Gathering and organizing teacher materials
  • Organizing lectures
  • Taking attendance
  • Creating progress reports
  • Creating presentations and handouts

All the administrative work can be extremely time-consuming, and teachers are embracing the AI tools that help them automate them. With these new tools, teachers can focus more on the lecture and teacher-student time, than on repetitive activities they don’t like.

2. Grading Tests & Essays

Grading is another challenge for teachers when it comes to time management and organization. Teachers all over the globe have their hands filled with tons of papers and essays to grade manually.

Is there an easier way?

Yes, with modern-day AI automation tools, teachers can let natural language processing take the lead and analyze and grade for them. 

Naturally, nothing can substitute the human mind when it comes to understanding an essay, feeling the essence of it, and understanding where the writer is coming from. But, what AI tools can and are checking for the teacher includes spelling, grammar, punctuation, fill-in-the-gap questions, multiple choice questions, and more.

This is the type of technology that Top Writers Review and other similar services are using to improve how they help students. They investigate editing and rewriting services and quickly find mistakes using smart tools to provide honest reviews. They help you choose the right company, and you receive a spotless essay.

3. Personalized Learning Software

Nowadays, remote and online learning is more in-demand and more recognized than ever. Students of all ages and interests are using a smart education system to consume and acquire knowledge. And now, these systems are getting smarter.

With advanced AI technology, students are offered a personalized learning experience. The systems interact with the student, collect data, and learn from it. They create a unique learning experience based on the student’s activity.

For instance, if a student is having trouble with one specific area of the study materials, the system will recognize it and offer more materials or questions to make sure they master it. 

AI enables these systems to learn and improve so that the users can have a truly personalized experience.

4. AI-Supported Practical Learning

We know how important practical knowledge is and that it can be crucial for a student’s overall success in school. But, we’re also aware that not every school can provide adequate practical knowledge nor that every student can attend these live practical lectures.

Luckily, AI can create virtual environments in which students can acquire practical knowledge as if they were actually performing certain activities or attending certain lectures.

This is something we often see in medical education, where students take on virtual tours of operations or use AI tools that simulate surgeries and complex procedures. Similarly, these types of tools are being applied in other education sectors and areas of study as well.

5. Creating a Global Classroom

Finally, AI is enabling students from all over the globe to access education easily and quickly. We are no longer physically bound to any educational institution, nor is our location determining the type of education we’re able to receive.

There are artificial intelligence colleges and high schools that are introducing new technologies as we speak. Together, they’re creating a global classroom trend that will continue to grow.

The Future of AI in Education

It is clear that AI in education is making huge changes and improving the overall experience of all participants. But, what can we expect in the future?

It is estimated that the AI in education market size will grow by over 45%  by 2030. We will witness more changes in the domain of AI tutoring and smart education applications. Educators will be able to develop their skills more and approach every student with specific methods. Also, educational institutions will be relying more on data and AI tools to find, attract, and teach their students.

Final Thoughts

AI in education is far from new, but it’s only beginning to make a real impact on educators and students. It will forever change the face of teaching, learning, and interacting in the educational sector, and we’ll be there to witness it. What will education look like 5 or 10 years from now? We can only wait and see.
