AI to change VN education in the future: experts

Changing the role of teachers in classrooms and upgrading the quality of lessons, AI is expected to change the face of education in the future.

Many general school teachers in Hanoi have heard about ‘chatbot teacher’, a project utilizing machine learning and AI developed by Le Van Anh, a teacher, and Le Viet Dung, a student, from the FPT High School.



The ‘virtual teacher’ used in teaching geography has surprised many teachers with its high effectiveness.

The tool to build a ‘virtual teacher’ is from IBM Watson. This is software using AI developed by IBM so as to give answers to questions in natural languages. One doesn’t have to have deep knowledge about programming to be able to easily access the product.

The virtual teacher created by Anh is believed to be a very effective online learning method.

The use of chatbot allows it to easily find information and raise questions to the chatbot and get accurate answers within shortest time. The higher flexibility and attractiveness in comparison with the traditional online teaching method (direct or indirect) are very clear.

It can be used in two different channels which have relation with each other – one chatbot and one video channel.

The use of chatbot allows it to easily find information and raise questions to the chatbot and get accurate answers within shortest time. The higher flexibility and attractiveness in comparison with the traditional online teaching method (direct or indirect) are very clear.

Real teachers will use ‘virtual teacher’ standard knowledge as provided by the Ministry of Education and Training, while the ‘virtual teacher’ will provide knowledge to students.

More and more education establishments have utilized AI in teaching and management and gained very encouraging initial achievements.

With utilities and the ability to synthesize knowledge, AI will affect classic classes and teaching methods.

According to Truong Nguyen Thanh, Vice Rector of Van Lang University, it is clear that AI can do a lot of teaching work in the future. The role of teacher in the 4.0 era will change a lot of in the next 10 years, when AI gets involved more deeply in school activities.

“I believe that AI will revolutionize the teaching environment and studying. However, we should consider AI as aids that support the teaching, or assistant teachers. After all, teachers will still play the key role in the process of teaching and learning, while technology will be just supporter,” Thanh said.

Agreeing with Thanh, Tran Manh Ha, Vice Rector of the Hong Bang International University said AI will make study more interesting and effective for students and teachers, but it will not be able to completely replace the teachers’ role.
