When you think of education, you probably imagine a monotonous lecture or a repetitive worksheet. But why does this have to be the way we educate students? How about, instead, we make learning feel like a game. A game, where you didn’t even realize you were learning. That’s what we do at Explore Interactive.

How to Teach Artificial Intelligence

Article | February 17, 2020

Artificial intelligence—code that learns—is likely to be humankind’s most important invention. It’s a 60-year-old idea that took off five years ago when fast chips enabled massive computing and sensors, cameras, and robots fed data-hungry algorithms. We’re a couple of years into a new age where machine learning (a functional subset of AI), big data and enabling technologies are transforming every sector. In every sector, there is a big data set behind every question. Every field is computational: healthcare, manufacturing, law, finance and accounting, retail, and real estate. We all work with smart machines—and they are getting smart fast.

Why an LMS is a great tool for an EFL flipped classroom

Article | February 25, 2020

Flipped classrooms have been here for a while and a considerable amount of research shows that this pedagogical method can be used for a wide range of subjects (from biology to computer science), with K12 and university students. An LMS can make a smooth transition towards the flipped classroom model and will empower students to form their own ideas and methods of language learning. It can successfully turn a language class into a personal learning experience.

A Vision of AI for Joyful Education

Article | March 25, 2020

Many look to AI-powered tools to address the need to scale high-quality education and with good reason. A surge in educational content from online courses, expanded access to digital devices, and the contemporary renaissance in AI seem to provide the pieces necessary to deliver personalized learning at scale. However, technology has a poor track record for solving social issues without creating unintended harm. What negative effects can we predict, and how can we refine the objectives of AI researchers to account for such unintended consequences?

How Machine Learning, A.I. Might Change Education

Article | March 11, 2020

Artificial intelligence (A.I) technologies such as computer vision and machine learning are providing new ways to revolutionize learning and skills training at universities. From doctorate degrees in machine learning (ML) to bots that aid the work of teachers, there’s accelerating interest at the college level in A.I. and ML. Research firm TechNavio projects that the A.I. market in education will grow by a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of close to 48 percent from 2018 to 2022 (the study also noted the role of chatbots in enhancing learning—hopefully that technology pans out better for education than it did for most of the business world).
