How will Artificial Intelligence change education?

Artificial Intelligence im Education

What is artificial intelligence and why is everyone talking about it? Artificial Intelligence (AI) is an algorithm combination that allows machines to undertake and perform tasks just like a human would do, in order to maximize results. 

And how is this related to education? Adaptive learning, virtual reality or augmented reality and the analysis of usage and progress data generated by learners are current trends both in class and at home. Artificial Intelligence comes with a tech package that allows for a more personalized education, aiming at improving the learning experience: 

  1. Adaptive Learning: traditional, teacher-centered approaches that focus on mainstream instruction have clearly become obsolete. Adaptive learning sets the foundation for a learning environment where machine intelligence adapts to the individual needs of each student, adapting content-based instruction appropriately. The result? Personalized learning. 
  2. Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality: Why are there still, certain curricular areas that many learners find boring? Is it easier to imagine what a cell is like by looking at a picture? Or how a child feels when experiencing bullying? Virtual reality and augmented reality allow for first-class, experiential learning. 
  3.  Usage and progress data analysis: What if after completing a task, learners could double-check their answers, track game time or the options they marked? Thanks to Artificial Intelligence, we can analyze data like this and use the information to reinforce learning where necessary, to boost skills or program activities. 

The Smile and Learn methodology takes advantage of Artificial Intelligence to improve the learning experience regardless of the students’ learning conditions, personality or skills. If we all started using technology in education, we would be investing in a better future.
