How useful is AI in improving the educational learning environment?
To answer the above prompt, AI is already impacting the education systems in a fabulous way, by enabling interactive learning tools, such as PhET Interactive Simulation. The system is based on real world data model for quantitative research and offers measurement instruments such as rulers, stopwatches, voltmeters, and thermometers.
The initiative goes in hand with the Digital for development principle of designing with the user. Today students from African background which is mostly under resourced do not need expensive laboratories to learn and give feedback in their innovative researches.
Today Glowdom is fulfilling the Digital for Development goal by partnering with education stakeholders to incorporate interactive educational tools like PhET. All education stakeholders could be part of improving their education environment by bringing AI tools which not only saves money but also offers explorations which could otherwise have been an impossible goal.
