How Artificial Intelligence is transforming education system

The face of the education system has undergone a sea change in recent years. The present-day educational structure is competitive, challenging, and needs to be capable of meeting international benchmarks. The emerging technologies, such as artificial intelligence, are changing our lives as they are being put to different purposes. And just like other areas, AI is disrupting and creating an impact on the education system as well.

AI is making long strides in the academic world, turning the traditional methods of imparting knowledge into a comprehensive system of learning with the use of simulation and augmented reality tools.

Here are some ways in which AI is transforming education as we know it:

1. Effective management of administrative tasks

Through the automation of administrative work, artificial intelligence allows ample time for teachers that they can utilise to engage with students in an improved manner and assist them through the challenges efficiently. AI helps with school admissions via the automation of the categorization and processing of paperwork. It also helps with the grading of test papers as AI helps assess both objectives as well as subjective answer sheets.

This saves time and efforts of the teacher along with avoiding human errors of lapses in attention or even unconscious biases.

2. Access to quality content

Automation has also made quality education accessible to a larger population in the form of smart content. The professors can compose or design study materials customized according to the different needs of the students in different regions with the help of evolved applications of AI. The learning material can be shared in diverse forms that may consist of virtual formats such as video conferences and lectures.

In addition to the intelligent tutoring system, smart learning content created using AI will assist teachers to facilitate each student individually. AI is helping create a series of digital content from the traditional textbooks, categorising them into outlines, study guides, chapter summaries, and practical tests.

AI interfaces enable teachers to frame e-curriculums and a more comprehensive outline of the syllabus across myriad devices, enabling online assistance programs, illustrative videos, and audios.

3. Personalised learning process

While in traditional classrooms, an educator may not be able to pinpoint each student’s strengths and weaknesses and provide undivided attention to them. But AI is empowering teachers to track their students’ performance and progress in real-time and address the individual needs of each student appropriately. In addition to this, with the help of AI, teachers have ample time to guide their students so that their cognitive skills see an improvement.

Besides academics, AI can also identify and streamline students’ career choices. AI helps in identifying if a student is susceptible to certain learning disabilities such as dyslexia or any other issue the child may be facing. This, in turn, can help teachers to determine if they have developed the relevant reading skills for their age.

Moreover, the AI software helps in collecting detailed information about students so that the

Key ways Sullivan and Hayes differ on the economy and education in the coronavirus crisis

The coronavirus crisis that continues to stifle jobs and schools across the nation is a key dividing line in the race for Connecticut’s most competitive congressional district.

A New Fairfield prosecutor trying to be the first Republican to represent the 5th District since 2006 says the direction voters wanted when they elected Donald Trump president in 2016 is the way out of the COVID-19 crisis for people in northwestern and central Connecticut.

But U.S. Rep. Jahana Hayes says the correction voters wanted when they elected her and a Democratic majority to the House of Representatives in 2018 is the way to help schools in need and get the economy back on its feet in Connecticut.

Republican challenger David X. Sullivan, a retired assistant U.S. attorney, said he started out campaigning against Hayes but has wound up fighting a war against “Marxism.”

“We need to move forward to provide help to people, but we have to transition away from total dependency on the federal government,” Sullivan told Hearst Connecticut Media last week. “We want to get people back to work.”

Hayes, who first made the spotlight in 2016 as the national Teacher of the Year, said relief for jobs and schools in Connecticut’s 5th District can’t wait for the next election day mandate on Nov. 3.

“We are in a Democratic majority in the House and the bills we are passing reflect Democratic priorities, but they also reflect the priorities of the people of this district,” Hayes told Hearst Connecticut Media. “I vote for the plan that does the greatest amount of good for the greatest amount of people.”

Hayes’ and Sullivan’s comments came at the end of a week of virtual 5th District debates in Danbury and Waterbury, and a week of partisan debates in Washington, D.C., over a new COVID-19 relief bill that looked doubtful heading into the weekend.

An independent candidate running to make his case that the two-party system is unworkable said it’s no surprise House Democrats and Senate Republicans were $1 trillion apart about how much relief to provide taxpayers.

“We need an expansion for the unemployment compensation to add additional weeks to it, and if the country can afford it, an additional boost of $300-to-$600 per person,” said Bruce Walczak, an Independent Party candidate from Newtown who is participating in debates but is not raising money or otherwise campaigning in a traditional way.

With three weeks until the election, leading forecasters predict Hayes will be re-elected in a district where registered Democrats outnumber registered Republicans 140,000 to 100,000. Of the minor parties, the Independent Party is by far the largest, with 6,300 registered voters in a district that stretches from Danbury to the Massachusetts border.

The X-factor is the 180,000 registered voters in the 5th District who are unaffiliated with any party.
