Dear MEL Topic Readers,

Abu Dhabi startup is using AI to transform how kids learn

In most classrooms around the world, even though some students learn faster than the others, they are taught and tasked under the same curriculum and pace. They may be praised by scoring 100% in tests, but that also could mean they are missing opportunities to learn more. The reverse is also true. Slow learners are left behind the class and losing interest to learn. It has long been the common practice among most schools to simply put a set number of students in one place and teach them the same things at the same pace.

Now, there are tools that offer personalized learning curriculum that is tailored for individual students by using artificial intelligence. You might think such a high-tech teaching style is being practiced in Silicon Valley or Shenzhen, China’s tech hub, but it is happening in Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. There are no books, no whiteboards, no markers or pens in the classrooms. Instead, students use their own-created avatars to work with computers that offer tailor-made curriculum to study subjects like math, science, and English. The curriculum is made and adjusted by AI that utilizes millions of data points on a daily basis from classrooms. In these classrooms, the teacher’s role is not to teach students but to assist them to learn through the program and offer help when needed. Ideally, everyone in the classroom can learn most effectively at their capacity. Well, as business practices have been and will be changing with AI, why not for teaching and learning in classrooms?

Enjoy reading the article and watching the video and think which way you would prefer if you were a middle school student, a textbook and pencil, or a display and keyboard to work in 2030 and beyond.
