  • Here are five things that an AI/VR school system can do just as easily as a traditional teacher.
  • The AI system can analyze student responses and know the exact next question that students need to deepen their thinking and knowledge

    So as an AI system is a part of the World Wide Web, it would have the ability to send content, resources, videos, articles etc. to the student based on what they need to learn or study next.

  • An AI system would be able to use the most relevant resources and the most current studies to support the student in any content.
  • Consider the idea of a global classroom where students from around the world can work together in a learning experience.
  • With virtual reality the learning experience no longer has to be in a classroom, it doesn’t even have to be on school grounds.

There are two technologies that have really captured the attention of educators as well as futurists. These are artificial intelligence and virtual reality. What are the implications of these new technologies in education? Quite simply they can revolutionize our educational system. The question is, at what cost to the educator?

Students come into the classroom and begin to work on a worksheet. The teacher then delivers the content for that class. It might be a lecture, video, or reading from a text. Then the students do an activity with that newly learned content. Then the teacher offers more work to practice the content usually in the form of homework. Generally this is a standard day in a classroom of a traditional teacher.

So as an AI system is a part of the World Wide Web, it would have the ability to send content, resources, videos, articles etc. to the student based on what they need to learn or study next. The amount of additional resources and ever-changing discoveries is staggering. We know that knowledge is rapidly increasing on a global scale. An AI system would be able to use the most relevant resources and the most current studies to support the student in any content.

Consider the concept of distance learning. Consider the idea of a global classroom where students from around the world can work together in a learning experience. An AI education system would be connected to all other AI education systems so that when students need to work on group projects, the AI systems would join those students together remotely.

With virtual reality, science class will be taught in a simulated science lab, music class will be taught in the famous French Opera House or in an electronic music lab based out of San Francisco and Language Arts can be taught by Edgar Allen Poe. With virtual reality the learning experience no longer has to be in a classroom, it doesn’t even have to be on school grounds. With VR it doesn’t even have to be on the ground. Field trips can be to ancient Rome and gym class can be hiking Yellowstone National Park.

Because the AI/VR system is all on the web, it is a 24/7 learning experience. School can be any time. Personalized learning becomes the norm and each student becomes an expert of their interests. From struggling learners to those that are exceptionally intelligent, the AI/VR education system will know their needs, and be able to work with them whenever they wish. Of course there will be required milestones and benchmark requirements. But time becomes a non-issue. Your grade level, 1st, 2nd, 11th, means nothing. You move at your pace because your AI/VR system is there for you wherever and whenever.

Great teachers will not be replaced with technology. Great teachers will facilitate learning with the help of technology. Great teachers also have another secret weapon—they exhibit the human element. Great teachers are compassionate, empathetic, kind, caring, and the list goes on. Great teachers foster these characteristics and share their love of learning with their students. Great teachers who possess these human elements will not be replaced by technology.
