Artificial intelligence takes the form of many things, some examples are: chatbots (bots with which a student can chat to gain clarity on concepts, clarifications etc.), learning management systems (a very useful tool for teachers where all course content and assessment can be present), virtual reality (experiential learning) etc. AI promotes the personalization of courses, and this is the current need of the world. This is done through, adaptive learning software’s, personalized game-based learning, and personalized programs. AI can be used to identify the efficiencies and deficiencies of each child and can generate reports within seconds, so that teachers can gain better insights into their students. AI also incorporates various teaching methods, to ensure that no child gets left behind. For example, many tools now have a “read aloud” feature which helps hearing impaired and visually impaired students. AI can ensure an equal level playing field for all students no matter their challenges. AI is not only beneficial to the students, but also to the teachers. With the ability to access tons of information at their fingerprints, the teacher can keep improving their knowledge base and make their classrooms better each day. In this way, AI is extremely important for the future of education and will keep evolving according to the needs of the classrooms.
