Can AI replace/augment the current teaching staff and help with student engagement? With the increased number of students in home-based education system can AI assist teachers to create engaging learning environments? We will look at virtual agents/ facilitators for personalized knowledge delivery, mentoring, multilingual translation and skill assessment.
The webinar will also be looking at education through the lens of personalization. How can technology address the need for informal and continuous upskilling required for overall social empowerment? We will look at some of the new learning paradigms and IIITB’s research in this area.
Assessment is a huge part of every teacher’s work schedule. What is the AI based solution for automated assessment? AI based assessment needs to go beyond the MCQs and output matching to support assessment of descriptive answers in terms of accuracy of the content, thought process and subjective situational judgement applied by student. Can assessment track real learning?
The webinar will also try to address the impact of online learning in society. The impact on pedagogy when the medium of knowledge delivery changes to an online environment; how do we address the issues of accessibility and comfort of both learners and teachers with the technology platforms. Does this new learning environment introduce bias in learning because of the loss of serendipity and loss of environmental diversity to build one’s character?
The webinar series makes a serious attempt to provide a well-informed and balanced view on the novelty, opportunity, challenges, and Impact of these technologies. The series is designed as a set of 4 webinars.
