This Substack article from learning designer Dr. Philippa Hardman summarizes recent research from UniDistance Suisse. The research indicates that AI, rather than replacing educators, will augment traditional teaching. Their innovative AI tutor app, developed in collaboration with education experts, utilizes OpenAI's GPT-3 to generate curriculum-relevant questions and employs neural networks to provide tailored feedback to students. Early results show users experienced improved exam scores.
This "Educational AI" approach suggests a future where AI seamlessly integrates with human-led instruction, delivering personalized learning experiences and insights. As education evolves, blending AI with human expertise can revolutionize teaching methodologies, emphasizing adaptability and individualized student support.
