How AI Could Save (Not Destroy) Education | Sal Khan | TED

The TED Talk by Sal Khan is about how artificial intelligence (AI) could transform education for the better. Here is a summary of his main points:

Khanmigo is an AI-guided learning tool developed by Khan Academy, a nonprofit online learning platform that offers free lessons and exercises on various subjects1. It can be used as a virtual tutor for students and as an assistant for teachers to generate lesson plans and assist with other administrative tasks 23. Khanmigo aims to personalize learning for each student by providing tailored support, prompting critical thinking, and suggesting relevant resources34. It is part of Khan Academy’s efforts to transform education using artificial intelligence (AI) to make it more efficient, equitable, and joyful 24

Khanmigo might be able to point out key ideas that a student might find worth practicing retrieval with. Or suggest a few jumping jacks for a break when it’s clear a student is pushing the wall with frustration.  Or home in with interleaving exercises when a student clearly needs a bit of extra practice.
