Several schools are now giving age and level appropriate artificial intelligence training to prepare the future workforce to live and prosper in a society where this piece of technology is so firmly integrated.
The CBSE, a leading educational body, has taken the lead in incorporating AI into school curricula. They've created an integrated curriculum, and AI is already being taught as an elective subject in grades 8 through 10. Other institutions, especially those linked with the International Baccalaureate (IB), have been aggressive in providing adequate AI exposure to their students.
In schools, there's an AI wave.
AI has already been presented to students at many educational institutions, including Kendriya Vidyalayas that teach the CBSE curriculum. The AI wave has piqued the curiosity of students, who not only attend these classes but also design AI models based on their experiences.
Schools will begin integrating AI with other courses in Classes 1 to 12 as per the CBSE mandate. Despite the fact that other syllabuses have not announced the inclusion of AI in their normal curriculum, several international schools have been instilling basic technology in their students' curriculum.
Educators think that what students learn now will prepare them for a range of roles in the future. They'll go on to be coders, developers, builders, and innovators, and they'll have to learn cutting-edge subjects like Artificial Intelligence (AI) in school.
Many schools now recognise that robotics should be taught as a subject, and that AI, as a component of robotics, should be studied as well. Science, Mathematics, Philosophy, Sociology, Computing, and other fields have all contributed to AI, so any school should recognise the need to integrate AI preparedness to maximise learning across disciplines. Artificial intelligence is quickly evolving, with the potential to drastically alter the educational landscape.
In some schools, teachers will have robot assistants that will share the daily obligations of a teacher while providing digital inputs and teachings in the classrooms.
For a few years now, robotics has been a part of the elementary technology curriculum in many Indian schools, and the skills have been used to real-world problems like employing artificial intelligence to simulate an earthquake and its magnitude on buildings. Furthermore, colleges like Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham also follow the same path to bring transformation to humankind as a whole using the power of AI and technology. A brighter future is surely on the way.
