Part Four: The Future of AI & Programs Utilizing Artificial Intelligence

AI technology has changed society in a number of positive and important ways, and this technology has the possibility to do the same in educational settings. Despite this, implementation of AI technology in the classroom has been slower than implementation in larger society. Will AI be used to replace one-on-one teaching?


Part Three: Algorithms, Machine Learning and AI for Improving Literacy & How Can AI Determine Reading Abilities from Eye Movement Patterns?

While it is easy for most people to provide examples of AI technology, it may be far less simple to actually explain how AI technology works. Lexplore’s AI-based reading assessments use algorithms to determine a student’s reading ability. But just what are algorithms, and how can an AI-based tool be trained to understand the nuances of student reading ability?


Part I: AI in Our Lives & What is AI?

Artificial intelligence, or AI, has become such an integrated part of our lives that we often don’t realize it is a tool we use on a daily basis. Because of the near-ubiquitous nature of AI, it is no wonder that the use of AI in educational settings has become a topic of focus.
