In recent years there has been a remarkable transformation in education, fuelled by the rapid advancements in artificial intelligence (AI). From personalised learning platforms to intelligent tutoring systems, AI-assisted technology has become an integral part of the modern educational landscape, revolutionising the way we teach and learn. While AI has gained significant attention recently, its roots can be traced back to the mid-twentieth century. The term "artificial intelligence" was coined at the Dartmouth Conference in 1956 where researchers aimed to develop machines that could mimic human intelligence. Since then, AI has evolved rapidly, driven by advancements in computing power, data availability, and algorithmic improvements.
This guide aims to explore the potential of AI-assisted technology in education and show how to harness the capabilities of AI to enhance student engagement, improve academic outcomes, and foster a more inclusive and adaptive learning environment. We will look at the features of AI tools, its applications, limitations and provide real-world examples, while considering the ethical considerations and challenges associated with AI in educational settings.
