Artificial intelligence is already a part of schools everywhere. You find it in customized lessons taught via computer, data-management software, predictive and prompted emails, and adjustments in climate-controlled buildings.
AI also has begun to permeate instruction, with interactive robots and curriculum built around STEM fields. In short, AI is changing the face of education.

Artificial Intelligence is Improving Education Sector like never before!
We’re in 2020 and long past the days back when we used to stand outside the school library to get the opportunity to copy two or three Encyclopedia pages, to use as a kind of reference for our school projects.
With this age having grown up with the benefit of access to technology at their fingertips, the field of education has hugely changed and overturned in this digitally driven world. Artificial Intelligence in the education market was worth US$2.022 billion for the year 2019.
It can be difficult to gauge how effective your online instruction is—using surveys to gather regular student feedback can help.
The role of artificial intelligence in education is always a hot topic. While some fear that artificial intelligence will take over education to the detriment of students and teachers, others claim that artificial intelligence will revolutionize and improve education.
While we’re far from seeing robots in the classroom, artificial intelligence is making its way into education. Certain tasks can be made easier through the use of artificial intelligence. Grading, for example, can be done quickly and easily using artificial intelligence. The most important way that education will transform education is by simply helping students to learn. In this piece, I will discuss 7 ways that artificial intelligence helps students learn.
Coding is enormous in education right now.
No wonder. Coding offers so many academic benefits that schools cannot ignore its significance. Sequential processes, computational thinking, and creative problem-solving all make up coding. It’s the new literacy in schools. There’s so much to like about coding that coding academies and boot camps are springing up everywhere.
With nearly 100% of education over the past months taking place online amid the coronavirus pandemic, plus what parents were doing to homeschool their kids, we all have been struggling, particularly those in low-income communities. Now is not the time to despair, however.
The disruption created by this pandemic presents an opportunity to imagine a different future for our kids, their families and their communities.
School in a post-coronavirus world will never be the same. Having no choice but to rely heavily on online learning to guarantee continuity of education in a society disrupted by the pandemic has taught lessons to more than just the students.
It is now time for teachers to reflect on the experience of socially distanced school and prepare for the upcoming year and the unique challenges it will present.
Going back to a new normal after such a defining historical event may feel a little like travelling without a road map, but teachers can at least take comfort in the three keywords they can use to orient themselves in this uncharted land: engagement, personalisation, interaction.
Coding and robotics can be just as engaging when students learn from home-all it takes is a little planning and some creativity.
As AI grows in the education sector, its impact could be felt in student learning programs, websites and admissions programs.
For decades, science fiction authors, futurists, and movie makers alike have been predicting the amazing (and sometimes catastrophic) changes that will arise with the advent of widespread artificial intelligence.
So far, AI hasn’t made any such crazy waves, and in many ways has quietly become ubiquitous in numerous aspects of our daily lives. From the intelligent sensors that help us take perfect pictures, to the automatic parking features in cars, to the sometimes frustrating personal assistants in smartphones, artificial intelligence of one kind of another is all around us, all the time.
