How will AI Change the Game in Education?

Will your children someday be taught by machines at school? It’s an idea that definitely inspires strong opinions, but that time may not be far off. Learn how AI can help enable the current education system to solve the challenge of accommodating a wide range of students and how they learn. Download the report now and learn how AI can change the delivery of education, make it more accessible, how it could improve upper secondary school graduation rates, and how it will be introduced into the world of teaching and learning.

Accommodating a wide range of diverse students and how they learn could lead to giant leaps in learning. By 2040, with the help of AI, more than 110 million students could receive additional support they need to complete upper secondary education. Those students could fill 3.3 million additional jobs and generate more than $342 billion in incremental value through their earned wages.

AI could also improve teacher training while reducing costs over the same time frame, resulting in $748 billion saved, which could then potentially be reinvested in school systems.

AI Can Fundamentally Change Education

Skills, training, and class size can all affect teachers as they do their best to address students' diverse learning needs, personal learning styles and pace of understanding. When students can’t get individualized attention, it affects their drop-out rates and chances of pursuing post-secondary education. Socioeconomic disadvantages and learning disabilities can add to the teachers’ challenges.

AI provides huge potential to fundamentally change how education is delivered, and to help make it as accessible as possible for every student. Leveraging it in the classroom could improve upper secondary school graduation rates.

How AI Extends and Improves the Future Education System

AI lets machines interact naturally with people, data, and the environment. It also creates more intuitive interactions and extends what either humans or machines can already do on their own. AI can understand context, recognize student faces, and even analyze sounds, handwriting and even emotions. With the large amounts of data that can be collected from an individual student, AI can be used by the teacher – or even by other students in the classroom – to recommend, translate, and modify content individualized for a student, while continuously improving upon itself to improve long-term results.
