Technological Integration in Education-ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE

Artificial intelligence is rapidly growing with the potential to change the face of education.

Matrix Tutors was founded as an educational force to innovate the future of education through tailored curriculum and emotional intelligence. Matrix takes an innovative approach to education—is sending AI Holograms to United States public schools. This innovative technology (artificial intelligence & augmented reality) is developed for the purpose of ensuring that every child succeeds with an individualized education and in personal and professional growth.

What is artificial intelligence in education?

At its most basic level, AI is the process of using computers and machines to mimic human perception, decision-making, and other processes to complete a task. AI is the process of using technology to engage in high-level pattern-matching and learning.

In the case of education, machine learning-based AI tools can be used for a variety of tasks, such as producing individualized curriculum for homework assignments, diagnostics, assessments, etc. Machine learning-based AI is also already showing impressive results when it comes to approaching simple and complex solutions, such as:

* monitoring student learning/activity * creating models that accurately predict student outcomes * scoring students’ written responses * analyzing large, complex datasets

Who is using AI?

According to a report on the Artificial Intelligence Market in the education sector in the U.S., experts have predicted that between 2017 and 2021, the use of artificial intelligence in education will grow by 47.5 percent. This is due to both students and educators being in a position to benefit from the use of AI in education. AI technology is helping students learn better and faster by pairing EdTech with high-quality learning materials and instruction, and improving the teaching practices and lesson planning of educators. EdTech is simultaneously revolutionizing the way that teachers can do their jobs and transforming the way that students can learn.

Here are some of the leading roles that AI is playing and will play in the future:

  1. Task Automation — AI automates administrative tasks (grading tests, evaluating homework, filing the necessary paperwork, making a progress report, organizing resources and materials for lectures, managing teaching materials, etc.) to give educators more time to do their primary work of teaching.

  2. Personalized Learning — AI ensures that educational software is personalized for students by using adaptive learning software, games, and programs to emphasize each student’s needs, and even highlight specific topics where students require additional help and support.

  3. Universal accessAI tools make classrooms globally available to all students, including students with audial, visual, or speech impairments. They also open up learning platforms for students who speak different languages.

  4. Smart content creationAI can help teachers create smart content that makes teaching and learning more comfortable for them and the students. AI can be used to create digital content such as digital lessons, information visualization, and learning content updates.

  5. Teaching the teacher AI gives teachers a more rounded, in-depth, and comprehensive knowledge of how to serve students in the 21st c. Teachers are equipped to learn modern methods/pedagogies for instructing students.

  6. Identify classroom weaknessAI complements the teacher’s work in a classroom by identifying some of the weaknesses within the classroom (i.e.: identifying when students miss specific questions and alerting the teacher). This prepares educators to reteach the material because the students have not yet mastered the introduced concepts. This increases teacher accountability and helps them adhere to the best teaching practices.

  7. 24/7 AssistanceSeveral AI-powered chatbots are specifically built for education as a sector. They work as students’ assistants round the clock to provide answers to their questions at any time. Students no longer have to wait to see their teachers during office hours or until class hours in order to find solutions to their problems.


AI has the potential to transform the face of education.

Teachers are able to keep up-to-date with modern research and methods to ensure they are creating content that suits their students and ensuring a personalized learning experience. AI tools automate tasks so that educators have more time to teach and effectively impact students learning. They also assist with designing formative assessments that help students learn faster and better.

These mechanisms are a critical part of the teaching and learning process. From intelligent tutoring, stealth assessments, games, and virtual reality, mini-tests built by artificial intelligence can provide a wide variety of ways to use this technology to build engaging educational tools.
