To create more future-ready learners, Quipper launched its first Student BootQamp that empowers all learners in the country.
To open more doors for students to become future-ready, Quipper, one of the leading edtech and LMS platforms in the Philippines, launched their first Student BootQamp last April 1, with the theme “Equipping Learners with 21st Century Skills that go Beyond the Classroom.” The main objective of the webinar was to upskill the students with modern skills for them to be employable in the future and to empower them to embrace technology as an integral part of their learning process.
Senior High School students, teachers, and admins from different schools in the country attended the webinar, where they learned how the newest technologies could affect their future career goals while delving more into how Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing industries and shaping the future of work.
To kickstart the first Student BootQamp, Senior Director and International Expansion of ELSA Corp., Natalie Do discussed the importance of AI technology to generate conversation about its benefits and functions in various processes.
She reiterated how AI would significantly change the system in various sectors, deeming it a monumental development of our existing technologies. “The use of AI provides automation that is beneficial to make things easier for us. It is a revolutionary tool that can create more opportunities for people to improve their work,” Natalie shared.
Regarding its benefits in the education sector, Natalie[GU1] highlighted that AI is not there to replace educators in the classroom and to make students rely solely on AI knowledge. Instead, it aims to integrate intelligent tutoring systems into students’ learning and apply adaptive assessments for teachers to give lessons and tests suitable for student learning.
“The fear of AI replacing our work will not happen because, despite its power to generate knowledge, it doesn’t do fact-checking well. However, it can make a difference in transforming our operations or day-to-day work by designating repetitive tasks, like grading exams, creating modules or lessons, drafting emails for work, and more to AI,” said Natalie.
Furthermore, Natalie shared how ELSA Speak hones and uses the power of AI to teach English communication skills to their different users worldwide. “We aim to enable different English learners worldwide to create more opportunities. And I believe that Quipper and ELSA Speak share the same mission, thus making AI and technology, in general, an integral part of learning,” Natalie added.
