Four Ways AI in Education is Pushing Change–for the Better
Artificial intelligence (AI) has become the elephant in the training room. Some organizations are embracing AI technology and using it to create efficiencies and make some tasks easier. Others are wrestling with the ethical dilemmas AI leaves in its wake. But there’s one thing everyone seems to agree on: AI in education is irrevocably disrupting almost every every institution in huge ways.
AI is poised to revolutionize the way we learn and teach. Here’s how educators can use AI to their advantage:
1. Automate Manual Tasks
Many educators get bogged down with mundane tasks like data analysis, content curation and creating effective quizzes and assessments. AI can handle a lot of these types of tasks, while making the process more efficient and dynamic. This frees up educators to focus on the more strategic aspects of teaching, such as crafting engaging narratives to help students enjoy what they’re learning and fostering more interactive learning experiences.
2. Personalize the Learning Experience
A one-size-fits-all learning style is no longer sufficient for today’s students. Educators must adapt their curriculum to account for varying individual needs so every student has an equal shot at success. AI algorithms can help analyze students’ strengths, weaknesses, and preferences to deliver a more personalized learning path. Through continuous evaluation, assessment and feedback, AI can help adjust each learning path to focus on building proficiency in areas where students struggle—ultimately setting them up for a well-rounded, successful learning experience.
3. Make Decisions with Data
Data collected through robust registration software like Learning Stream can give educators a wealth of information on student performance, course material efficacy, and instructional strategy. But parsing through data does not play to everyone’s strengths. The advanced algorithms prominent in AI can analyze vast amounts of data, giving educators the information they need to adjust learning strategies and make data-driven decisions—without the need to become a data scientist.
4. Test AI’s Impact
AI is still a new phenomenon in the education industry, so testing it is the only way to truly measure its impact. Try using Learning Stream to evaluate learning content that uses AI and compare it to traditional course content. Track student success, learning retention, and other data before you discount AI’s influence.
Taking advantage—or even embracing—the benefits of using AI in learning management may be uncomfortable at first. But the only way to learn is to try. AI might not help in every instance, but it may be able to save time, resources, and a few headaches along the way.
Registration software like Learning Stream can bookend the learning experience—from initial class registration to messaging, reporting, testing and tracking.
