Examine- here we have to probe deeper into the topic, get into details, and find out the causes or implications if any.
Key demand of the question.
The question wants us to bring out the role that AI can play in transforming education in India and improve the learning outcomes.
Structure of the answer
Introduction– write a few introductory lines about the various ills faced by education in India. E.g low enrollment particularly in higher education, unequal access to quality education; poor learning outcomes etc.
Discuss in points how AI can help mitigate the woes of education in India. E.g Teachers are often quite unable to decide which methods of teaching will resonate with the majority of their students. AI can make these decisions with less errors than human beings; Learning skill-sets requires students to grasp multiple aspects. Hence, a fair assessment should evaluate a student on both their strengths and areas that need improvement. AI can create fairer, unbiased ways to assess candidates by taking into account all the limitations of fixed-format exams, such as varying weightage and the curriculum’s difficulty level. AI can set our compass straight so we head in the right direction; AI can reduce wastage of time and resources at the grading stage because it allows each student to know how they are performing in real-time from both the lens of proficiency level and expertise; AI prevents us from designing a templated single-course, and instead allows adjustments as each user progresses through their learning cycle by keeping track of what is working and what is not; AI can make excellent recommendations after evaluating content at multiple checkpoints and also redirect students to free learning resources. That’s a win-win situation; Traditional learning is not serving the purpose anymore as the world becomes increasingly complex. A student-driven approach toward education boosts retention and encourages each individual to learn how to apply concepts to troubleshoot real issues happening in the world. Personalized, AI-driven learning empowers every single student to accelerate their progress and both discover and harness their full potential etc
