Five Top AI Tools for Education

In this blog post, Andrew Caffrey from Canopy, looks at some of the most popular AI Tools in Education. 

Artificial intelligence (AI) is rapidly changing the world, and education is no exception. AI is already used in classrooms to help teachers develop learning resources, provide feedback, and automate tasks. As AI continues to evolve, it is likely to have an even greater impact on education. 

AI can help save teachers time in a number of ways. For example, AI can be used to create lesson plans, write letters to parents, and develop schemes of work. This can free up teachers to spend more time on tasks that require human creativity and judgment. Additionally, AI Tools can be used to personalize learning for each student, which can help students learn more effectively.
