The fact that a majority of the children all over the world are devoid of education must be enough to make us think about the education system that is in place right now. We have been following the traditional education system since the beginning of the time. However, the world is changing so quickly that the system is unable to keep up with it. For the children of this century, we need to develop a new pattern of education. Moreover, IBM Watson AI is in one of the front-runners in this field. Since its introduction to the world, IBM Watson AI has made a mark in a lot of areas, most notably, in the field of medicine and education.
IBM Watson Education has been revolutionizing education by introducing personalization to help both the students and teachers. With the help of IBM Watson, the students have been able to measure their progress and their skills which provide positive motivation to improve. The teachers can get personalized reports of each student so that they are able to implement an approach that would benefit the students.
The Watson Classroom consists of IBM Watson Enlight and IBM Watson Element. They are being used in a number of classrooms and have transformed the way learners, and teachers interact and educate. IBM Watson Enlight is a comprehensive software that allows the teachers to have access to the student’s development records and all study materials that would be required. The study materials are in accordance with the state’s education standards and are developed by using the Watson’s cognitive technologies. IBM Watson Enlight allows the teachers to use the power of analytics and progressions to determine which students have the ability to master a specific course. It uses data representation to demonstrate the complete profile of a student. The report is developed by taking into consideration all data such as the student’s interests, academic history, demographics, social characteristics and behavioral properties. This allows the teachers to gain a deeper insight into the student’s mind. IBM Watson Enlight also comprises a library for the teachers to have access to a vast amount of content that is aligned with the requirement of the students and the course. IBM Watson Enlight is a software that is deployed on a secure cloud infrastructure which is powered by SoftLayer.
IBM Watson Element is an iOS app that empowers the teachers to understand the needs of the student by viewing their progress records. The educators can share the accomplishments of each learner and understand how to engage the learners based on their interests. This makes the learning procedure more personalized and engaging. IBM Watson Element also enables the educators to share the records among themselves and collaborate on how to educate the students. IBM Watson Element uses a variety of sources to gather data about the learners, like their attendance, social data, academic details, to name a few. This is an iOS-based app that runs on iPad Air 2, iPad Mini or iPad Pro.
These applications and software provide the groundwork for the development of our education system and make it more accessible. They inculcate the personal development of the students and tend to make the system more flexible to accommodate students from the entire spectrum.
