Artificial Intelligence, or AI, is a relatively new technological advancement becoming increasingly popular in the classroom. There are plenty of reasons for this. For example, AI is much better at explaining and describing abstract concepts to students than actual teachers.
In this article, we will be discussing why AI can be used as a sidekick for teachers in the classroom.
AI Can Assist In Providing Better and More Constructive Feedback
Many teachers enjoy using AI specifically to provide their students with more personalized feedback. However, this is just one of the many benefits of artificial intelligence.
AI is much more accurate and specific with feedback than teachers. The technology can scan and make detailed notes on every assignment or task that the students complete. In this way, it can provide students with personalized and in-depth feedback that can be used for massive improvements in the classroom.
AI Can Help Students 24/7
One of the most significant advantages of using artificial intelligence in the classroom is that it can work 24/7. Many students study and work on assignments late at night or after school hours. For this reason, they can access the AI technology when they need assistance.
Many teachers use AI to set up 24-hour chat boxes for their students. This way, when they have questions and cannot reach the teacher, they can use this chatbox for assistance.
AI Can Help With Revision and Specific Sections Of Work
As we have already mentioned, AI is much better at describing and explaining abstract sections of work to students. However, it can also be used to help with revision and other specific lessons in the classroom.
Many teachers do not have the time to go back and complete revision activities with their class. For this reason, AI can be used by the students to correct, analyze, and assist with revision. More so, sections of work that are very difficult to teach, such as practical art, can be taught with this technology.
Apps and Tools
There are thousands of helpful and successful apps that have been developed through artificial intelligence. For example, Pedagogue is a new social learning management system that has helped thousands of students worldwide by providing them a central location in which they can access learning materials.
Pedagogue can be used to communicate and collaborate with other students on the other side of the world via the ‘virtual classroom’ feature. Teachers can also use this app to organize and manage their teaching content.
AI can be used by teachers all over the world as a sidekick in the classroom. This technology can assist in providing students with better and more personalized feedback. It can be used to create 24-hour chat boxes, meaning that students can receive assistance even after school hours or late at night.
