Robots Won’t Replace Teachers, But AI Can Be a Great Assist
AI and machine learning have made a major impact in many industries—why not teaching? The frequent question is, will robots replace teachers? No, that’s unlikely ever to happen, but new technology can provide assistance to teachers.
In this Online Learning Minute, host Brian Runo explains why these advanced technologies have the capability to reimagine learning.
“In a large classroom with hundreds of students, the teacher can’t answer every question. A robot could help,” Brian said.
Algorithms from machine learning can also assist in grading papers by computing thousands of pages of content to check for grammar. There are many additional applications where AI and machine learning can benefit the teaching profession. They are there to enhance the experience for all, not supplant teachers, who remain vital to the art of learning.
