In the era of modern education, the development of artificial intelligence (AI) has become a regular topic of conversation. Some teachers are concerned about the impacts AI has on their teaching, and many are ready to embrace and adapt to these new advancements in technology. But how do we embrace the use of AI as an educator? How do we know if students are learning and not using AI instead? How can we embrace AI in the classroom as educators? Through this blog we explore the impact of AI on the education industry, focusing on its effects on students, teachers, communication, and what the future of the education industry looks like – with AI.
AI can and should be used to support efficiencies in the classroom, teachers should acknowledge AI’s potential benefits while being cautious of its risks. We can embrace AI in the classroom by using it to support teaching, create activities, have fun with students and foster innovation. Teachers are often at the forefront of new trends, and AI has been established as one of these trends.
The future classroom is likely to be a blend of AI and human interaction. AI will play a central role in automating administrative tasks, creating resources, providing data and delving into valuable insights for educators. This will allow teachers to focus on the emotional management of the classroom, hopefully freeing up time to create bespoke classrooms that nurture the needs of their learners in ways they have not had a chance when bogged down by paperwork. AI-powered communication tools are also being developed to help nurture efficiencies in school communication, Skool Loop is always looking for ways to support excellent communication that supports and empowers community within schools.
