He talked about the ability of Artificial Intelligence to automate tasks of certain kinds can be used as a help in advanced subjects.

Coordinator Tonge said, “Teachers can focus more on mentorship and emotional support while AI handles the routine task. AI can be integrated into various subjects and various grade levels from elementary to high school education.”

Robert Tonge also talked about the issues that could be faced by the authorities in using Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the educational sector of Dominica. The primary issue he mentioned about is the concern among the teachers and some lack of understanding of the technology.

Tonge said, “Teachers may fear that AI will replace them or take their role in the classroom. Some teachers can feel overwhelmed or intimidated by AI technology and its implementation. Teachers also worry about worsening inequalities if AI tools are not accessible to all students.”

Robert Tonge talked about the concerns and explained the strategies in his words, said, “One will be balanced integration, proactive learning, teach digital literacy, encourage offline activities, and foster self-regulation.”
