How Forward-Thinking School Districts Are Using AI to Excel

Updated: 5 days ago

As artificial intelligence (AI) continues to grow, many educators have begun to tap into its potential in the K-12 sphere. Can AI save schools time and money, all while achieving their goals? The answer is yes. AI is shifting the paradigm for K-12 education, offering transformative potential in revising the way we teach school. Schools have begun leveraging AI tools to enhance learning experiences, improve outcomes, and help teachers with planning and instruction. But how is AI being integrated into K-12 classrooms? Read on to find out.

 

Personalized Learning

One of the most remarkable applications of AI in K-12 education is in personalized learning. AI systems analyze students' learning patterns and tailor educational content to meet individual student needs. Using BlenderLearn’s Individual Learner Profiles, which incorporate AI technology, schools can customize the curriculum to focus on how each student best learns. This ensures that students are not left behind due to the traditional “one-size-fits-all” approach of the past. Instead, AI-enabled teaching assistants and mobile applications create a scalable, “one-size-fits-you” approach, providing teachers with tailored resources, and ensuring each student receives the support they require to succeed.

 

Saving Teachers Time

AI tools help educators save considerable time throughout their workday on tasks such as preparation, grading, and assessment. These tools gather data, suggest lesson plans, and group students according to learning needs, which enables teachers to reallocate their time toward more direct student engagement and instruction. In fact, recent studies have shown that the effective use of technology, including AI, in preparation activities can reduce the time spent on these tasks by 20 to 30 percent. This massive decrease in a teacher’s workload can drastically improve the quality of their teaching and student-teacher connections.

 

Curriculum Development

AI can also make planning classes easier and faster, further saving teacher’s time and allowing them to work more efficiently. BlenderLearn, in partnership with Watson AI, allows all content to be automatically meta-tagged, and a Virtual Assistant can help prepare lesson plans. Further, Watson’s Discovery App makes it easy to seek, find, and vet new content from across the Internet.
