We continue our discussion of AI & Education. Data Analytics can inform a teacher as to the relative quality of a student’s work. AI can analyze large volumes of educational data to identify trends and patterns related to student performance and engagement. Educators can use this information to make data-driven decisions, such as identifying struggling students early, implementing interventions, and improving curriculum design. But there are also “downsides” to AI. We discuss bias, opacity, privacy and other issues.
