How Will Artificial Intelligence Change Schools in 25 Years?

Imagine walking into a classroom in 25 years and encountering a completely new environment. Instead of chalk and blackboards, you see interactive displays and virtual realities. Students learn individually and autonomously, supported by artificial intelligence. In 25 years, schools could be places where AI not only supports but also actively shapes and elevates personalized learning to a level we can hardly imagine today. In the coming 25 years, artificial intelligence (AI) will fundamentally change schools and learning. AI will not only be used as a tool to support teachers but also as a learning companion for students.

How will this future vision affect the work of teachers, and what opportunities and challenges will arise from it?


One of the most significant changes will be the individualization of learning. AI will be able to recognize and analyze the learning progress and needs of each student. Based on this, it can then create tailored learning offers and tasks that are precisely aligned with the performance level and interests of the students. As a teacher, you will be relieved of the tedious preparation and differentiation of teaching materials, allowing you to focus on the individual support and guidance of students.

Another significant change will be the use of virtual and augmented realities in teaching. With the help of VR glasses and AR applications, students can immerse themselves in foreign worlds and explore complex issues in an illustrative and interactive way. Imagine students wandering through the rooms of a Roman palace or exploring a human body in 3D without leaving the classroom.

As a teacher, you will have the opportunity to make lessons even more varied and exciting, motivating and inspiring students in a completely new way.

In addition to these opportunities and potentials, the use of AI in schools also presents a number of challenges and risks. One of the most important challenges will be creating the necessary technical prerequisites and infrastructures. Both schools and school authorities, as well as politics, are called upon to make the necessary investments and create framework conditions. But there are also a number of risks and concerns. One of the most important concerns is the protection of students' privacy and personal data. Clear regulations and guidelines must be established to ensure that students' data is secure and protected from misuse. You can find our detailed blog post on this topic here. Another important concern is the question of responsibility and control. As a teacher, you will continue to be responsible for designing and conducting lessons. It must be ensured that you, as a teacher, continue to have the necessary control and decision-making power and that AI is only used as a tool and support.


At this year's Education Digitalization Conference 2024 in Berlin, numerous education experts gathered to develop a common vision for the digital transformation in education and emphasized the need for coordinated educational governance. The second day focused on ensuring equal opportunities and participation in digital education, discussing international experiences and best practices. Education ministers and experts shared their visions for integrating digitalization in education, highlighting the conference's role as an important platform for professional discussions. The event provided an opportunity to develop strategies to make education fairer and more inclusive. You can find a detailed summary here.

In conclusion,

Artificial intelligence will fundamentally change schools and learning in the coming 25 years. As a teacher, you will benefit from using AI and have new opportunities and possibilities for designing and conducting your lessons. At the same time, you will face new challenges and risks that need to be addressed. It is important that you actively engage with these developments as a teacher and prepare yourself for the future vision of a school with artificial intelligence. And very importantly, AI will NOT replace your work but support it. Set aside your fear of the new and start seeing digital changes as an opportunity for a better future.
