Benefits of Artificial Intelligence 

In today’s society, technology plays a large role in our everyday lives. Artificial Intelligence (AI) has made its breakthrough in recent years as a tool for this generation’s education. It has recently begun to bring numerous benefits to learning. Through the implementation of AI, schools can greatly aid both the students and the teachers. AI can help ensure thorough curriculums and stable learning environments for all students. 

Primarily, it is important to recognize what AI is. It is a frequently used term in our society, yet people often need a more complex understanding of its definition. AI refers to the ability of machines to replicate or enhance human capabilities. It comes with many benefits that we now see in schools worldwide, including that of Blind Brook. 

One of the first advantages of AI in schools is the personalization of learning. Through AI, schools can customize the learning for each student, giving them a better understanding of the topic being taught. This also has the capability of helping teachers better comprehend each student’s level of ability within a specific subject. Personalization of learning with AI can change each unit and topic based on what that student needs. This allows students to learn at their own pace and feel more comfortable in their communities at school. AI is also beneficial to students with learning disabilities, allowing the student’s curriculum to be entirely changed to ensure the success of every student. In an article from the Harvard Business Review, Lasse Rouhanien writes about the value of AI technology in learning, “With a personalized learning experience, every student would enjoy a unique educational approach that’s fully tailored to his or her abilities and needs. This could directly increase students’ motivation and reduce their likelihood of dropping out. It could also offer professors a better understanding of each student’s learning process, enabling them to teach more effectively.” Through AI in learning and schools, the unique educational experience fitted for each student is necessary to ensure their ability to thrive.

Additionally, teachers can use AI technology to make themselves more helpful mentors for their students. For example, in an article written by Stanford University, the Dean of the school discussed the strong points of AI in terms of influencing teaching habits when reporting, “Technology offers the prospect of universal access to increase fundamentally new ways of teaching. I want to emphasize that a lot of AI is also going to automate really bad ways of teaching. So [we need to] think about it as a way of creating new types of teaching.”  Developing new ways of teaching at a high school level can keep students engaged and eager to learn while at the same time constantly encouraging teachers to refine their lesson plans. AI can be used for grading objective measures, such as multiple choice questions, to ensure that work is returned most efficiently for students to reflect and grow on their mistakes. 

The use of AI in schools helps to build success for teachers to meet the needs of their students better and, ultimately, positively impact student learning. This is constantly changing how people learn and permitting teachers to improve their curriculum continuously. Assisting both teachers and students across the world, AI must be embraced as a permanent facet of the future.
