‘Education’ always plays the most crucial part in the life span of each individual.

Better education you get, better future you can secure, and this is the easiest way to understand the prominence of education.

From schooling to graduation, parents want the best for their children, thereby, they invest a significant amount of money. Put simply, parents want to educate their children in a way that helps to make all dreams come true.

Barring this, the major difference between developed and developing countries is ‘High literacy rate.’

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

—  Nelson Mandela

AI has done wonders in all industries where it is has been adopted. The education sector is also prospering owing to applications of artificial intelligence. By 2021, if industry reports are anything to go by, artificial intelligence in the US education sector will grow by 47.5%.   To keep children more focussed on studies, parents try to limit screen time, which seems like a correct approach. But what if I tell you parents should let their children’s screen time increase… jeez! I am not crazy. Actually, applications of artificial intelligence can help to get a better education.

Today, I will elaborate on how artificial intelligence is making the education system better, so pay heed:

AI automates common tasks like grading  

Artificial intelligence has always been known for its capability of saving time. In every sector, time is invaluable. And if we only focus on the education sector, teachers usually invest most of the time in completing common tasks like grading.

This is where artificial intelligence comes to the picture as it automates common tasks and saves a lot of time, which can be used for interactions with students, being prepared for class, self-development, and so on.

Evidently, human grading isn’t going to vanish any time soon, but AI can automate some sort of grading concerning student writing, multiple choice and fill-in-the-blank testing. There is likelihood AI will cover more aspects in the near future as continuous improvement is in its nature.

  • Brainly.
  • Thinkster Math.

Pre-empts educational gaps by providing universal access

“Do you know what good education actually mean?”

Nope! Well, when all concepts are clear as a crystal to students. It is important because if something is unclear to students, there are high chances they would confront unnecessary hassle in the later stages.

At this juncture, applications of artificial intelligence come to rescue as they provide access to limitless information, which can be accessed from anywhere at any time.

Here, you can take the example of ‘Coursera’, which is a mammoth open online course provider and uses AI-driven applications to provide comprehensive and accurate information to autodidacts.

Offers additional support to students    

As we know, some students learn quickly, while some pupils understand concepts slowly. To put it briefly, every individual has a different learning capability.

Sometimes, students face issues while doing homework or test preparations due to unclear concepts. This can really lower down their confidence level as nobody likes to be left behind. At this point in time, it is instrumental to provide additional support, which can be done easily via AI.

Nowadays, tutoring and studying programs powered by artificial intelligence are grabbing the attention of parents, who want to secure a better education for their children at all costs. By means of AI-based programs, students can easily clear all their study-related doubts owing to a range of learning styles.

Indubitably, human tutors aren’t going to be replaced by AI ones at least for now, as there are some things human teachers can offer better than machines running on artificial intelligence. But there is a high possibility artificial intelligence will cover most of the difference in the next few years, as that’s what makes this tech special.

Final few words:

At the present time, artificial intelligence is becoming an important part of our life. We shouldn’t have any problem with AI because if something benefits us, there is no harm in embracing it.

Artificial intelligence is being adopted by many industries and the education sector is one of them. Indeed, teachers give their best while educating students during classes, but there is a probability they may miss gaps in their educational materials or lectures. After all, they are humans.

However, such errors can cause unnecessary hassle. This is where the prominence of artificial intelligence amplifies as it can help pupils to overcome all the difficulties that unclear concepts can possibly produce.

By means of this write-up, I tried to explain how artificial intelligence is making the education system better. I hope you’ve understood all the above-mentioned pointers.
