Intelligent machines and teachers are not in competition with each other. They are independent elements, functioning in a closely connected dynamic. The sphere of education has to be an ever-growing space as it always has to think one step ahead. As our society is speeding in technological developments, understanding and adapting it to the education system is the best way to get society to catch up with the technology. Artificial Intelligence- one of the most coveted technologies, can be a super-tool to support human functioning. However, artificial intelligence will never replace humans but only support, aid, and lend helping hands to make human functions easier.
Educational robots are gradually merging into the Education system. School systems and parents have started recognizing the potential of educational robots. However, there is still a massive cloud of skepticism lurking around it. Listed below are some of the roles that robots can take in educational spaces-
A statistical data says"30% of teachers cited 'grading' as a task that robots could do to help improve their teaching." With the help of robots, teachers can significantly reduce their workload. When assigning a robot to grade a child's performance, it can quickly assess the strong skills and the skills that need improvement and make study plans to help the child perform well. Through accurate grading, the child can also understand strong and weak points themselves. Through this grading system, if the robot finds that the child is performing exceptionally well in a specific subject, it can be used for the child's knowledge to understand their interests better.
Apart from grading, administrative responsibilities, attendance logging, and language translations are also sought by teachers from artificial intelligence to share their workload.
In an inclusive educational system, children with disabilities can study without hassles. Having an educational robot with training in assisting children with disabilities can be an excellent tool for the child and the school. Educational or social robots manufactured to interact with humans can help children will all abilities, including children with down syndrome and autism.
1 in 54 children is diagnosed with autism, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Thus, it only makes sense to have resources to support them in making their education process more accessible.
One of the artificial intelligence's perks is to help children find out what they know and do not know. By building a personalized study schedule, each child can have a stress-free education experience because they can choose subjects wisely, thus increasing their efficiency. ROYBI Robot has a fun curriculum for children to have personalized and stress-free learning.
Robots are potential BFFs for teachers. The workload is shared. Students' efficiency with education can increase. And finally, students and teachers are getting an extra support system in their educational environment. Thus, instead of asking, "will artificial intelligence replace teachers?" Let us ask, "how will artificial intelligence help teachers make education better for all?"
