K-12, a term often used in education, is an abbreviation for the publicly-supported school grades before college or university. The grades here refer to Kindergarten (K) through to the 12th grade. Children taught through such a system are enrolled at the ages of 4-6 and continue in this system up till they are 17-19. The K-12 educational system is widely applied in schools within North America and also in countries including Australia, the Philippines, and Turkey, to name a few. The K-12 system has also been recently incorporated into Arabic regions, including the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, and even Saudi Arabia, owing to its effectiveness in providing fundamental knowledge to students. At Knowledge Hub, we specialize in rendering Artificial Intelligence courses designed to the needs of students within Dubai and the UAE.
Artificial Intelligence, also known as machine intelligence, is the intelligence demonstrated by machines that are different or in contrast to the ones shown by humans. It can also be termed as the ability of a computer-controlled robot to do various tasks typically associated with human beings. Over the years, there have been debates on the topic of AI, as some people see it as a revolution aimed at eliminating the need of humans in the workspace. However, AI, in actuality, has transformed the face of education by opening new doors that lead to higher productivity, more successful students, and lower cost for the highly populated public-school system.

 

Benefits of Applying AI into K-12 Education

Can be Adapted to Individual Student Needs

In public school systems, the number of students usually tend to be higher than the available resources. In such an environment, it would be difficult for teachers to cater to the individual needs of all their students. AI facilitates the application of higher levels of individualized learning through interactive and innovative learning programs. An AI-based educational system caters to individual student needs by putting more focus into specific topics and redoing the areas that the students have not quite clearly understood and thereby guiding students to accomplish a lot and at their pace.

Artificial Intelligence solutions are also the answer for assisting students at different educational levels to work together. The teachers here won’t be left behind; they have a significant role to play in this scenario, first by facilitating learning through A.I. and secondly by providing emotional and physical support when needed.

Identify Areas for Improvement

Unlike automated machines, tutors may not be able to spot gaps in their lessons, and it may put students in a confused state of mind on specific concepts. AI technology helps to simplify the process of identifying weak spots in students by shining a light on them and also help them understand these concepts better. For example, when numerous students give an incorrect answer to a specific question, the system would notify the teacher for such an occurrence and also inform them of the particular concept from which the common wrong answer came about. Additionally, it also sends customized messages to students, offering them guidelines towards getting the right solution and thereby ensures that all students are working on similar conceptual foundations.

Automize Activities such as Exams and Grading

One of the most tedious activities in any educational curriculum is to prepare exams and grade students, especially when it’s the sole responsibility of the teacher. Such a scenario can also give rise to human error due to either emotional or psychological responses such as exhaustion. Furthermore, the time used for grading is usually substantial, which can otherwise be used to communicate with the students and work towards their development. AI-technology has shown significant process in evaluating tests, and its ability can be seemingly compared to that of humans. Our AI-based solutions enable tutors to effortlessly grade both multiple-choice as well as “fill-in-the-blanks” questions, thereby providing the tutors with spare time that they can focus on in-class activities.

Collect Meaningful and Immediate Feedback

As mentioned, AI helps tutors to craft lessons that are tailored to individual student needs. Additionally, it also offers essential feedback to students and teachers on lessons or subjects where improvement is needed. In short, by incorporating Artificial Intelligence courses, schools can monitor individual students and alert tutors on the various areas of weakness. The AI-system also relays feedback on how to approach the concept in which the weakness has been identified. Such a system can prove to be helpful when applied together with other methods of learning.

Added Support from AI Tutors

Yes, human teachers provide a variety of things that are fundamental to the growth and development of the student, and which the machines are simply incapable of delivering. An example being the emotional and physical support that tutors can only provide during lessons such as P.E. However, Artificial Intelligence courses can play a significant role in helping students learn subjects such as chemistry, physics, mathematics, and more. The course enables students to understand the fundamental concepts behind specific topics better and thereby provide additional support to human-based tutors.

Simplifies the Trial-and-Error Learning Process

“Trial-and-error” is an integral part of learning in any institution. However, most students find the prospect of telling the wrong answer or failing, quite intimidating, and thereby despise the idea of having to face their peers or tutors. AI is designed to lessen the burden and fears associated with such a learning environment by offering students the ability to experiment and learn various concepts in an environment that is free of judgment. It should also be noted that AI systems are also designed to learn from this method and are therefore considered the perfect tutoring support for students facing the same type of difficulties.
