Maybe you’ve witnessed a classroom where the focus on learning is intense.
A hum of excitement resonates in the air, and everyone, the teacher and students alike, goes about their work with a focused purpose. Everyone is engaged. The workflow is fluid. Routines are seamless. The students help each other succeed.
Maybe that classroom is yours.
If it’s not, it can be.
Educators can have a challenging time adapting their teaching style to match every student, especially when there are students with learning disabilities in their classroom. A learning disability presents a unique obstacle to traditional teaching methods. It can be difficult in a contemporary classroom for teachers to give students the attention and instruction they really need. Now, they might be able to receive that instruction through the use of artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence is rapidly growing more useful by the day. Researchers are developing cognitive systems that can help to support those with disabilities in the unique ways that suit them. These AI programs may be able to present material in a fresh way that can help students to better understand independent of teacher instruction.
