Pushback Against AI in Public Schools
There is a huge amount of pushback against the idea of Artificial Intelligence classes being taught in public schools. While some people view the idea as “stealing from our children,” others argue that it’s simply a matter of education.
The fact is, it all comes down to education. You see, there are two major ways that teaching our children is supposed to take place.
First, there is the conventional method where they are introduced to some of the topics that you’ve likely already figured out were important. Second, and probably more important, is the way that teachers are used to introduce the subject matter.
When you think about it, one could make a very good argument that the use of Artificial Intelligence in public schools is one of the best ways to teach something. It is a whole lot less expensive, it is way easier, and it has an almost immediate result.
The Benefits of AI in Public Schools
When you think about what our children learn from these things, you’ll realize that there are a lot of things they already know. It doesn’t take them very long to absorb what’s on the page.
As a result, introducing Artificial Intelligence classes into the classroom is a great way to start teaching something that kids already know. Not only that, but they are also giving students the opportunity to have fun.
That’s not to say that Artificial Intelligence classes shouldn’t be taught outside of the classroom. In fact, there are other methods for teaching.
For example, middle school students are getting to understand a lot of human traits and behavior. Rather than teaching them how to hit a ball to someone, they are learning to be creative and adaptive in their environment.
When you take this approach, it is much easier to teach children about the many different types of behavior that they will face in the real world. As you can imagine, that takes a whole lot less time.
As for the public schools, while they can certainly use the help, they have no such advantage over special education programs. There is simply no shortage of students who are going to need assistance in regards to their ADD, ADHD, or conduct problems.
If you want to go ahead and introduce Artificial Intelligence classes into your public schools, go ahead. In fact, if the schools don’t feel comfortable doing so, it is always best to send your own children.
