10 Ways Artificial Intelligence Can Reinvent Education - Online Universities.com

10 Ways Artificial Intelligence Can Reinvent Education - Online Universities.com | Future Tech | Scoop.it

Artificial intelligence (AI) is no longer just in the realm of science fiction. Today we see it in areas where we may not be aware that AI is assisting us, such as "intelligent sensors that help us take perfect pictures, to the automatic parking features in cars" and more.

So what does this mean to education? The potential exists for AI to change education in significant ways. This post explores 10 specific ways (listed below). For more detailed explanations on each click through to the post.

* Artifical intelligence can automate basic activities in education, like grading.

* Educational software can be adapted to student needs.

* It can point out places where courses need to improve.

* Students could get additional support from AI tutors.

* AI-drive programs can give students and educators helpful feedback.

* It is altering how we find and interact with information.

* It could change the role of teachers.

* AI can make trial-and-error learning less intimidating.

* Data powered by AI can change how schools find, teach and support students.

*AI may change where students learn, who teaches them, and how they acquire basic skills.

An article that highlights the current, and some great potential implementations of AI in schools.

Andreas Wong's curator insight, March 27, 2015 4:00 AM

Artificial Intelligence can change education by being able to automate the basic activities of teachers, such as grading and essay-marking. In addition to this, the AI can interact with students and adapt their studies to fit their needs, as well as providing feedback to teachers about student performance and potential faults in courses.

Ric Fry's curator insight, March 27, 2015 8:55 AM

Using A.I. to assist education is a great idea. A.I. can direct the course of learning to a more effective method, and can be done personally, so that none miss out. However, this may reduce the role of a teacher to that of a communicator, translator, or interpreter for the student, as no two minds work the same.
