Let the machines do some thinking for Enablers of India

But if teaching with the use of artificial intelligence were made accessible to young students, the confidence they would gain would surely be reflected in their grades.

In addition, artificial intelligence is personalized tutoring. A child does not always understand the subject of lessons or homework. On top of that, a child in India often feels outnumbered in usually overcrowded classrooms, which is more often the case. Moreover, at home, the child is confronted with a particular problem – his parents are often overwhelmed when it comes to providing their pupils with new educational matrices. This is because the parents are too far removed from their own primary school years. It is in this context that Artificial Intelligence can come to the aid of a young student.

A good teaching has no manuals that a teacher faithful to his vocation can follow. The myriad of learning styles cannot be accommodated in a single format, and any attempt to do so will only drive a student away from the lessons. In this scenario, what happens to slow learners who are disadvantaged by faculty? We can’t let them hang around. A uniform learning pace for each student must be set, which artificial intelligence can do through computer systems. It can effectively deliver a personalized learning program that can support a student’s progress and keep them away from embarrassment. Speaking of slow learners, certain learning disabilities have been a recurring problem for students, their parents, and their teachers. What artificial intelligence does is uncover these built-in disabilities in a student. For example, dyslexia or dyscalculia which prevents a student from learning advanced lessons. Around the world, .Aritifical Intelligence representatives are working overtime in their respective labs to create an arm of artificial intelligence that would not only simplify complex texts for slow learners, such as a multi-layered sentence, but also help them explore their academic activities. in a more meaningful way.

Learning disabilities can throw a wrench into working inside classrooms. For the comfort of slow learners, it would not be justified for a teacher to slow down the general pace of learning in a class. But artificial intelligence can get slow learners and teachers out of this situation. It can give a student feedback on what they are missing in terms of learning, which would be of great help to teachers if a common pace of learning were to be established.
