While technology has disrupted most sectors of the economy and changed how we communicate, access information, work, and even play, its impact on schools, teaching, and learning has been much more limited. Technology has transformed life as we know it, and the classroom looks much different than it did 50 or even 10 years ago. Traditional chalkboards have been replaced with digital whiteboards, and classrooms have a surplus of iPads. Furthermore, as COVID-19 has made evident, schools cannot always provide in-person education making a case for investing in education technology.
In this regard, artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the disruptive techniques to customize the experience of different learning groups, teachers, and tutors. AI helps determine what a student does, building a personalized study schedule for each learner considering the knowledge gaps. In such a way, AI tailors studies according to students’ specific needs, increasing their efficiency. AI also allows the automation of administrative tasks, allowing institutions to minimize the time required to complete complex tasks to spend more time with students.
In addition, robotics brings excellent benefits to education. The use of educational robotics in the classroom encourages motivation since students acquire an active role and build their learning through this type of active methodologies. Educational robots also enable students of all ages to become familiar with and deepen their knowledge of robotics and programming while at the same time learning other cognitive skills. So including robotics in education will be a great initiative for young minds.
