The best AI tools for education

05.02.2024 |

Most of the discussions about artificial intelligence (AI) tools are often focused on business, but there is immense potential for AI to dramatically improve our educational systems. This is one of the most effective tools that teachers can have at their disposal, often relieving them of administrative burdens. These technologies will not replace teachers but rather allow them to allocate more time to student learning.

AI is rapidly growing in the education sector and is becoming a global billion-dollar market. This rapid growth is due to its ability to transform many aspects of teaching and learning processes. AI can create engaging virtual learning environments, generate “intelligent content,” alleviate language barriers, bridge gaps between learning and teaching, create specialized plans for each student, and much more.

Many innovative companies are creating AI tools to achieve these results. Let’s look at some of the best AI tools for education:

  1. Gradescope

What is Gradescope?

Gradescope’s AI tool allows students to evaluate each other while providing feedback simultaneously, which often consumes a lot of time without AI technology. Gradescope relies on a combination of machine learning (ML) and AI for easier grading, saving time and energy.

By outsourcing these tasks to external evaluators, teachers can focus on more important tasks. Gradescope can be used by teachers to grade paper exams and online assignments, as well as to prepare projects in one place.

Here are some key features of Gradescope:

  • AI-assisted and manually grouped questions
  • Time extensions specific to students
  • Grading with AI assistance
  • Improved efficiency and fairness
2.Fetchy

Fetchy is a generative AI-based platform created specifically for teachers. It empowers teachers to unleash their full teaching potential by simplifying and streamlining the myriad tasks they face, including creating engaging lessons, generating newsletters, crafting professional emails, and more. By harnessing the power of AI, Fetchy enables teachers to enhance their teaching methods, optimize time management, and make confident and informed decisions.

Fetchy specializes in personalizing generated language to meet teachers’ requirements without requiring them to formulate complex prompts. When using Fetchy’s personalized solutions, teachers can expect tailored results that align with their specific educational needs.

  • Generate lesson plans
  • Review history from multiple perspectives
  • Find mathematical or scientific experiments
  1. Nuance

Located in Burlington, Massachusetts, Nuance provides speech recognition software that can be used by both students and teachers. The company’s Dragon Speech Recognition product can transcribe up to 160 words per minute, aiding students who have difficulty writing or typing. The tool also supports verbal commands for document navigation, which is essential for students with accessibility needs.

Dragon offers many more features, including the ability to dictate lesson plans, curriculum, worksheets, reading lists, and more at speeds three times faster than typing, all while achieving 99% accuracy.

Here are some key features of Nuance’s Dragon:

  • Accessibility features supporting verbal commands
  • Voice assessment of students’ work
  • Dictate work in class with 99% accuracy

COMPUTER SCIENCE - THE PATH TO NEW AND PROMISING CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

12.08.2023 |

Computer science is one of the fastest growing fields in recent decades. They include the understanding of hardware and software and their use for information processing, as well as the study of algorithms, the use and processing of databases, the design and modelling of computer and network systems, and the creation of artificial intelligence. The scope of the computing field extends from small processor components, to programming languages, computer simulations, visuals and graphics, the connectivity of devices and objects on a global internet network, to cloud computing and virtual reality.

What is taught?

Computer science is a discipline with many overlapping subjects such as programming, mathematics, information technology (IT), logic, engineering. At its core, software development serves to solve complex problems in heterogeneous fields such as electronics, physics, biology, chemistry, finance, psychology, etc. In information technology, the emphasis falls on information transfer and storage, while software engineering combines programming with the use of engineering techniques and skills. Along with some of the most used programming languages – C#, Java, JavaScript, Python, HTML, CSS, Oracle, students also have the option to study subjects such as Cyber Security, Open Source Software Development, Programming for Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence, Web Programming. Typically in the first year of study, the programme includes compulsory modules, while as students progress into the upper years, they are offered more flexibility to choose their major or specialisation in the field, with internships often compulsory.

Job opportunities

As one of the most dynamically developing industries, IT is constantly providing new and promising career opportunities. Graduates find careers as software and hardware engineers, software and application developers, software architects, IT project managers, data analysts, computer game developers, and IT entrepreneurs.

Programmes and specialisations in computer science:

  • Information Systems
  • Business Informatics
  • Computer Security
  • Computer and business systems modelling
  • Artificial Intelligence
