Artificial Intelligence Tools in Teaching and Learning Process


The teaching and learning process is aimed to disseminate knowledge and skills with a dynamic interaction between educators and learners. Effective teaching involves recognizing the diverse needs of learners and employing strategies that foster understanding, critical thinking, and a lifelong love of learning. Artificial Intelligence (AI) plays a transformative role in the field of education, influencing both teaching and learning processes. Recently, the discussion evolved around whether AI may replace the job of educators in education. On the other hand, there are several AI tools available that can enhance teaching and learning skills. AI in education involves the use of intelligent systems and algorithms to enhance various aspects of the teaching and learning process, educational administration, and student support. The goal is to leverage AI to improve educational outcomes, personalize learning experiences, and streamline administrative tasks. This article discusses various AI tools that can enhance the teaching and learning process.

The central component of the system is the programmable brick, known as the "EV3 Brick" in the most recent version. The EV3 Brick is a small computer with ports for connecting motors and sensors, and it can be programmed to control the behaviour of the robot.  


An app that uses AI algorithms to personalize language learning experiences based on individual strengths and weaknesses. Duolingo is a popular language-learning platform that offers a variety of courses for people to learn languages. The platform was founded in 2011 and has since gained widespread popularity for its user-friendly interface, gamified learning approach, and accessibility. In adaptive learning It adjusts the difficulty of exercises to match the user's skill level. Duolingo is available as a mobile app, allowing users to learn languages on the go using their smartphones or tablets. Duolingo is free to use, but it also offers a premium subscription called Duolingo Plus, which provides additional features such as an ad-free experience and offline access to lessons. The platform has been widely praised for making language learning accessible to a broad audience. 


While not exclusively for education, Grammarly uses AI to help students and teachers improve writing by providing grammar and style suggestions. Grammarly is a widely used writing assistance tool that helps users improve their grammar, spelling, punctuation, and overall writing style.
