India has welcomed its first-ever Artificial Intelligence (AI) school. The nation’s inaugural AI school, named Shantigiri Vidhyabhavan, has been established in the capital city of Kerala, Thiruvananthapuram. The AI school was inaugurated on Tuesday by the former President of India, Ram Nath Kovind. The first AI school will cater to students from grades 8 to 12.
In the AI school, students will benefit from the support of multiple teachers, various levels of testing, competency assessments, counseling, career planning, and techniques to remember things better, along with tricks for improved retention. This innovative educational institution is designed to enhance the learning experience of students through the integration of AI technologies.
The inauguration of India’s first AI school marks a significant step towards leveraging advanced technologies to revolutionize the education sector and provide students with a unique and enriched learning environment.
Will ChatGPT Educate Students?
If you’re thinking that traditional human teachers will be absent from schools and instead ChatGPT will be teaching children, that’s not the case. In fact, the country’s first AI school is just like any other educational institution. However, to enhance the learning experience of students, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and advanced technological systems will be utilized at the AI School.
According to reports from Matrubhumi, the AI School has been established through collaboration between i-Learning Engine (ILE) America and Vedic e-School. This marks the beginning of a new era in education. Experts like former Chief Secretary, DGEP, and Vice-Chancellor will be working on this project.
What’s Special About the AI School?
At the AI School, AI will be used to assist in teaching students. Additionally, it will integrate AI technologies such as machine learning, natural language processing, and data analysis into various aspects of education, including curriculum design, personalized learning, assessment, and student support.
Officials from Vedic e-School state that the AI School presents an innovative educational approach that utilizes the power of Artificial Intelligence to provide students with an internationally-oriented education. This unique system ensures quality learning experiences not only during school hours but also beyond through the school’s online portal.
Students from 8th to 12th Grade
The new AI School will initially cater to students from 8th to 12th grade. Officials from Vedic e-School have mentioned that the AI School aligns with the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 and its national school recognition standards. It will provide comprehensive learning tools and resources for students in classes 8 to 12.
The AI-driven features of the school include multi-teacher revision support, multi-level assessment, aptitude tests, psychometric counseling, career mapping, capacity enhancement, memory techniques, communication and writing skills, interview and group discussion skills, mathematical skills, behavioral etiquette, strong grasp of the English language, and the development of emotional and mental capabilities.
In addition, the AI School will provide training for competitive exams like JEE, NEET, JAM, CUSAT, CLAT, GMAT, GRE, IELTS, and other entrance exams. It will also guide students in higher education activities, including scholarship opportunities at foreign universities.
