Intelligent tutoring systems

An Intelligent Tutoring System (ITS) is defined as an IT tool capable of helping a student in the same way (or almost) as a human tutor. Specifically, the functions it should perform are the following:

  • presenting learning contents;
  • evaluating the efficacy of student learning process (what and if the learner is learning);
  • promoting learner motivation;
  • helping learners to cope with difficulties, to bridge learning gaps by getting examples and extra explanations.

 

Smart classrooms 

A smart classroom is a physical learning room equipped with sensor technology. The data collected via sensors, e.g. with microphones or cameras, are used by humans or AI systems to provide learning assistants, tools or strategies for the learners (Southgate et al. 2019). A smart classroom should support the teacher in teaching in order to make learning more effective for the students. Assessment One of the biggest short term uses of AI in teaching and learning may be in assessment. Although e-Assessment has been around for some time, the use of AI can greatly enhance the variety of assessment formats. Automatic marking of assessments reduces the load on teachers, allowing a move towards more formative assessments, rather than reliance on manually marked end testing. The Wales government is exploring moving all exams in schools to e-Assessment in the near future.
