In establishing a beautiful world of a child, education is of foremost importance and for a better education system in today’s world of technology artificial intelligence is needed to indulge in our education system. Artificial intelligence is making change globally like in U.S and China for better results in quality education and career opportunities. By including artificial intelligence in curriculum children should able to learn and apply technology to the world.
According to Alan Perlis – “A year spent in Artificial Intelligence is enough to make one believe in God.”
To achieve requisite knowledge and to discover the highest innovative qualities in children learning of AI and robotics must be included in their system of education. By using artificial intelligence in the education environment children is getting keen interest in their learning and understanding how things around them are working in the real world.AI and robotics is an ideal procedure to exhibit students that how science and technology can be fun and fascinating to learn. By learning through artificial intelligence in school and universities people are achieving various work-life skills like problem-solving skills, time management skills, flexibility and building confidence. Lastly, robotics helps in giving fruitful outcomes of trending education policy commonly known as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
As technology is rapidly covering all the area in the world, we need to cope with it in a fast and effective manner. Artificial intelligence in class is providing overall development of a child and making various tasks easier for teachers.
Like there are special children who find difficulties in learning and understanding things AI-powered education is the best solutions for them. Artificial intelligence is quickly opening new doors for teachers and their students, even those with learning disabilities are becoming smart. The idea of more personalized education with the use of artificial intelligence is fascinating and gaining interest among children.
In research’s, it is found that Children having Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) have high levels of comfort with computers and robots. Robots and Computer programs for them are interesting, predictable, logical, and can provide an intellectual environment for children with specialized interests.
Researchers and Therapists all over the world are testing and implanting new technologies and methods to help children with various disorders to develop decision-making skills, adaptability, confidence, self-motivation, and social skills. A human being may get irritated in dealing with children having disorders and children may found their teaching style boring but children tend to feel more fun and comfortable in studies with AI-powered social robots. More importantly, robots and AI don’t differentiate between any kind of children and treat them equally.
AI- Based Robots used in education-
Artificial intelligence-based Robots used in education to deal with any child in a careful and provide proper knowledge to the child.
NAO is the first robot created by Aldebaran Robotics now known as the Softbank Robotics. The robot teacher NAO, a humanoid robot has been used as a teaching resource for kids and especially with kids having autism in schools. It was released to institutions in 2008 and was made publicly available by 2011.NAO aims to improve their social interaction and verbal communication skills with interactive educational games. Nao robots have been used by numerous schools to introduce children to robots and the robotics industry.
II. Solbit the Educational Robot-
Solbit was developed by a company called 7 senses lab which works majorly in STEM initiatives for educational purposes. Solbit is an Artificial intelligence-based robot providing a personalized learning experience and can do many things as it listens, it recognises voices, words, and images, it follows, it asks, it teaches and track progress. Through its algorithm, Solbit identifies kids’ unique talents and builds on the creative strengths and accelerates skill development. It grows together with the children. It provides features which are helpful for parents by which parents can participate in the learning experience of their children. Solbit in schools allows educators to use its cloud-based library and network of learning apps.
Various researches have showed that the use of artificial intelligence in the classroom is going to increase by 47.5% from 2017 to 2021. Educational robotics can be a useful tool in early and special education. There are several other robots are as well in education sector which are contributing towards a better learning environment.
In educational sector artificial intelligence tools are also providing automation in the work of the teachers. By using AI in classroom teachers can save their time and improve their children learning output. Let us look at different advantages of AI in classroom.
AI is making education more fun –
Ordinary teaching in school and colleges makes the environment monotonous and students do not show any kind of interest in learning something new. To recuse students from boring lessons Artificial intelligence is being introduced in education. AI in classrooms is making learning more fun and interesting by providing a technological environment which will keep children engaged in their class and understand all concepts that are being taught in class by the educators. Using robot technology and various AI-based software’s are developing a keen interest in learning and using the theoretical knowledge. It is also noticed that by using technology in classrooms students are developing skills like teamwork, management, and a positive and helpful environment.
Artificial intelligence helps educators and organization in complex and time-consuming work-
A teacher spends a lot of time in checking and giving grades to the students by going through their answer sheets. Artificial intelligence makes this easier by using various AI-powered software’s and saves time. The admission process can also be done fast as AI can automate the processing and classification of paperwork and can-do admission process more quickly. this will make educators spend more time and give more attention to each and every child individually.
Teaching and learning are boundless with AI –
If you are feeling sick or facing any kind of problem because of which you’re not able to make it to the classroom, with the help of AI you can attend and learn from class by sitting at any place. Students globally connect to the educators and their friends by being online and can ask any questions and interact with them without any hesitation.
Analysis of student’s performance –
With artificial intelligence, educators can rapidly analysis students’ performance in the classroom. Educators have more access to data than before that can assist them in identifying classroom weaknesses. This data may give an idea about various areas where teaching isn’t effective or subjects where the majority of students are struggling. It also gives educators a better glimpse of how students with learning disabilities are doingin comparison to others.
AI for improvement –
AI can improve the quality and flaws of educators and students in colleges or schools.AI based technology in some schools, which offers online classes are using AI systems for analysis of students’ progress and notify educators in which area do the students are lacking and how to improve these areas. These kinds of AI systems allow students to get the support they need and for professors to find areas where they can improve their way of teaching for students who struggle in different areas.
