The potential of artificial intelligence in the educational area is promising and limitless. The 2020 pandemic has only accelerated the integration of AI into the education sector. In the future, education is hard to imagine without AI that will control the whole process of learning from start to finish. Today there is a great number of opportunities to use modern technologies in the educational process in order to improve its quality, and effectively master the educational material and acquire all the necessary professional skills. And this is only the beginning.
AI is still at the development stage, and many issues are subject to discussion. But the results obtained already actively change the system of education and solve the problem of personalization and adaptive learning. The latest information technologies (AI, neural networks, big data) allow teachers to apply best educational practices and transform the way they teach, making the teaching process more comfortable and informative, creating an easier environment for students to learn.
With the help of AI, a computer can track the progress and failures of students, building an individual learning program for them. There is a greater opportunity for disabled children to study, as well as those who are in some other place for good reasons. Modern technologies help students increase productivity and reduce the routine, providing more time for interesting and creative tasks.
AI can be useful for both students and teachers. For example, with the help of AI, you can automate the process of grading papers and evaluating homework, and other routine administrative and organizational tasks. It will give teachers more time to analyze the results of classes, identify students’ problem areas and make recommendations to them. Teachers, overwhelmed with their current workload, will have more opportunities to prepare teaching materials for lectures and create individual classes with smart content and visualization.
The use of AI technologies enables effective learning programs for students, taking into account their individual characteristics and needs. AI can adapt to the level of knowledge of any student and their learning rate in order to achieve the desired goals and objectives. With the help of cameras, AI can analyze students’ behavior, their physical and psychological (emotional) health. Such a system is designed to help teachers determine the strengths and weaknesses of students, their reactions to lessons, topics, and assignments, as well as determine the reasons why students lose interest in subjects. The process of learning becomes more comfortable, adaptive and personalized.
Modern technologies greatly expand the educational opportunities of a modern person. Modern education is a lifelong process. Today, anyone can engage in self-education using mobile phones, computers, and various educational applications that can turn any lesson into an exciting game. For example, chatbots are designed to help students learn new material or understand any specific topic. Chatbot tutors replace communication between teachers and students, and teachers and parents, by providing round the clock information and feedback at any time, from any distance.
Many students perceive the learning process as a duty, which can cause them to be unwilling to learn and feel other negative emotions. The use of AI in education can not only provide access to flurry of information and new opportunities, but also introduce an element of the game, make lessons more fun and interactive, and increase students’ motivation for the learning process. With the assistance of AI, classes develop the necessary level of knowledge, practical skills of communication, critical thinking, and decision making. The role of the teacher in this process is largely transformed, but not completely excluded.
