AI in Education (part 2)
In part 1 of this post, I was inspired by a blog post from Alberto Arenaz where he muses that AI could be a co-pilot for learners. I think that this could be AI’s most significant impact on education — helping students become self-directed learners. This means providing streamlined access to content that is age appropriate and localized based on where the student lives. The more students interact with an AI co-pilot, the more it will learn about how each student learns. The “how” will lead to more efficient and personalized learning pathways and also provide feedback and support along the way.
A market review of AI toolkits and products reveals that it will impact education in three primary ways. AI will (1) translate content between different mediums and levels of comprehension, (2), improve learning efficiency by identifying optimal content, learning activities, and collaborators, and (3) provide formative feedback to help students learn more self-sufficiently.
