Scholly just introduced its latest product, Scholly Editor. A platform that allows students and individuals to have their writing reviewed and edited by Artificial Intelligence technology. AI is a rapidly growing learning mechanism that is earning its place as a necessary tool in education, to better the way students learn and improve the overall quality of education. To further understand how AI is becoming increasingly important, we wanted to give our readers a deeper look into how this technology is changing the educational sphere.
Artificial Intelligence, better known as "AI", is machine intelligence that allows individuals to learn, use, and make technological commands through advanced computer science. Basically, it's a super cool robot who does whatever you tell it to!
Here are 5 different ways in which this technology and Scholly Editor will transform our classrooms:
1. AI can make trial-and-error learning less intimidating
While the trial-and-error process is critical in learning, for so many students, the idea of failing, or simply not knowing the answer when called upon can be crippling. An AI computer system, designed to help students learn is a much more harmless way to deal with this scary but crucial learning component. With this in mind, the technology used in Scholly Editor allows students to quickly and accurately edit as many drafts as needed prior to finalizing and submitting. AI technology could potentially offer students a way to experiment and learn in a more fun, light, and judgement-free environment.
2. Educational software can adapt to student needs
From kindergarten to graduate school, one of the key ways artificial intelligence impacts education is through more comprehensive individualized learning. We’re already seeing the development of this in games, software, and multiple learning programs. While using Scholly Editor, students can better understand where their areas of need are, something that is sometimes difficult to determine in a non-automated process. Our platform provides suggested corrections, and advises on the weakest points in one's writing, giving users a more robust understanding of where they can improve. AI software learns the needs of students based on their behavior and choices and responds to those needs, for example, putting greater emphasis on subjects the individual might be struggling with.
3. Data powered by AI can change how schools find, teach, and support students
AI technology is already making waves in the way colleges interact with prospective and current students. From recruiting to helping students choose the best courses, intelligent computer systems are helping make every part of the college experience more individualized to the student. Initiatives are already underway at some schools to offer students AI-guided training that can ease the transition between college and high school. Who knows? The college selection process may end up a lot like Amazon or Netflix, with a system that recommends the best schools and programs for student interests.
4. Artificial intelligence can automate tedious educational activities like grading
While AI may not replace human grading wholly, it’s getting pretty close. Currently in education, teachers are able to automate grading for nearly any style of testing or writing. Because Scholly Editor is available to everyone, even teachers can utilize our technology as a way to grade more thoroughly, and let the computer do the work. While grading software is still in its infancy, it will certainly improve over the years, allowing teachers to focus more on the students and less on the grading.
5. Students can get additional support from AI tutors
There are certainly things that human tutors can offer that machines cannot, for example, more personalized assistance, creative suggestions, and a generally more humanized experience. However, the future could see more students relying on AI-based tutoring to make the learning process more efficient. With our proofreading categories (spelling, grammar, and writing style), students who use Scholly Editor can get specialized and specific support for their writing needs, without having to worry that a particular writing concern was left unnoticed.
While Artificial Intelligence is still being perfected, it has the potential to dramatically change the educational landscape and redesign classroom learning altogether. Not only can this assist in local classrooms, AI learning provides the software and support to students anywhere in world at any time. It is a revolutionary milestone in our technological sphere and we are excited and proud to be using it ourselves with our Scholly Editor platform. Educational programs powered by AI are already helping students to learn basic skills, but as these programs grow and as developers learn more, they will likely offer students a much wider range of services.
