Artificial Intelligence Helps Improve Education

Artificial Intelligence Helps Improve Education

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we can no longer take anything for granted. To that point, decades of teaching theory were suddenly upended when entire schools were forced to move online with little notice and even less planning time. This upheaval has opened the doors to new ways to educate both children and adults online, including adding artificial intelligence to the educational mix. 

Virtual Education Assistant

AI Increases Accessibility to Education

Like it or not, the education system is moving online and the digitization of education has opened the door to AI-assisted learning. Accessibility-enhancing approaches include accurate and live subtitling of professor lectures to help same-language students better understand what is being taught, assist hearing-impaired or otherwise disabled students to keep pace with lectures, and allows students that speak a different language than the professor to participate in the lecture. 

Customize The Learning Environment With Artificial Intelligence

Similarly, AI can help componentize long lectures and reading assignments, helping break hard to digest content down into smaller, more digestible pieces. These bite size pieces become less intimidating, which can help some students better ingest the content. AI can also make content more interesting to the student by customizing examples and stories to meet student interests, making the lesson more relevant and therefore more indelible.

Other ways to help students excel include the dynamic customization learning environments based on student preference, and deep-learning-enhanced surveys that help identify text learners, visual learners and auditory learners and provide them with the content they need to excel at school. 

Automated Grading of Assignments with AI

AI-Assisted Grading

Another way AI is helping in education is the automated grading of student assignments. These systems use a deep understanding of language, grammar and syntax to score written assignments. By offloading grading to computers, instructors are freed to spend their time on more important activities, such as helping individual students better understand course material.

Cheating Detection

While computers have been able to readily identify plagiarism without the help of artificial intelligence for years, Ai can help uncover other telltale signs of dishonesty by noticing subtle changes in writing style or word usage. Such a system could be used to ensure that an assignment is completed by the assigned person.  

Automated Cheating Detection

Educational Chat Bots

Teachers are often asked the same question by students, time after time. While answering these questions is not a problem for teachers, the time it takes to send and receive communications is often inefficient. As time distances the question from the answer, the value of the help is diminished as well. Chat bots are often equipped to answer students’ questions conversationally, helping them when they need the help, rather than hours later as is often the case with email.

Along the same lines as chat bots, AI has been tasked with helping improve student development. By using machine learning to uncover similar interests between online learning, AI can help foster social contact in a physically disconnected world.

Virtual Assistants

Virtual assistants can also be improved with the help of Artificial Intelligence. By integrating these tools with the school’s curriculum, these assistants can be tasked with helping keep students engaged and learning. We all know that activities such as reminders and alarms can be effortlessly created when you combine AI and voice recognition, but these virtual assistants can go well beyond such simple tasks. 

With AI, these assistants can recognize user intent, and personalize responses based on the class syllabus, and can even use conversation to help users solve problems similar to how a teacher works with their students.
