Language Models – Based Tools Will Radically Change Education

IBL News | New York

Microsoft supported ChatGPT, which uses a neural network to generate responses from data sources from the Internet and the AI-generated art tool DALL-E had many educators wondering about the future of learning.

The dominant conviction is that with AI for the masses, education is about to radically change, as an article in Getting Smart publication states.

Essentially, this technology allows educators to design efficient and personalized learning systems while students learn with more tailored and effective instruction based on their individual needs.

From existing underlying data, AI/ML (Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning) machines take huge amounts of data and predict relevant responses and they can build on previous responses as they learn from their interactions with the user.

The result is a more natural and helpful conversation, which is vastly different from the existing chatbots used currently online on many help desks.

The potential of this technology will result in highly personalized, adaptive learning programs for the masses with 1:1 tutoring support provided by sophisticated AI tutors and coaches; improved assessment and rubrics with continued questions; social-emotional and mental health virtual counselors; better teaching and decision-making methods; lesson plans and learning modules automatically created with entering texts, videos, and media sources — as the new Nolej and Edthena platforms, built on ChatGPT, are showing.
