In recent news, Arizona State University (ASU) has taken a big step forward in integrating artificial intelligence (AI) into its educational system. Partnering with OpenAI, ASU aims to provide enhanced learning experiences for both students and teachers. As AI continues to evolve the likelihood of its use in education is only going to increase. That’s why all educators should get ahead of the ball and begin learning how to use AI in the classroom. Our recommendation? At Numerade we’ve developed an AI tutor based on the latest edition of ChatGPT and it’s ideal for students and teachers alike in STEM classes. Read on to learn more!
Why Educators Should Leverage AI
We’ve written on this topic before but in short, here’s a few reasons why:
Streamline lesson planning & material preparation
Lesson planning can take up a huge part of an educator’s time, most often outside of working hours. Using a specific prompt, educators can reduce the total amount of time needed, thus reducing time spent working without pay. Similarly an AI can easily and quickly create homework assignments or in-class activities as well as an answer key in seconds. These materials can then be printed out or adjusted as per the educator’s needs.
Increased personalized learning for students
Because each student learns differently, they need a lesson plan that is tailored to their strengths. Unfortunately it is far too time consuming to attempt this for every student seen throughout the school day. Utilizing data such as GPA, behavioral goals, and more an AI can easily create a personalized plan of study and relevant assignments.
Simplify administrative tasks
Grading and recording data for individualized education programs (IEP) are arguably the most tedious tasks for educators. Through appropriate prompts you can easily create charts for tracking student data and automate processes such as assignment grading.

Numerade’s AI Tutor, Ace
Our artificial intelligence, Ace, is an intelligent generative AI tutor designed to assist students and educators in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Where many AIs struggle to accurately provide solutions to STEM problems, Ace excels. The reason? Ace is powered by Numerade’s proprietary data and millions of educator-crafted solution videos. Best of all, Ace is 100% free (the current edition of ChatGPT costs about $20 a month) for educators and students alike.
Ace in the Classroom
Educators can certainly use Ace but we’d also recommend you encourage your students to use Ace. There are concerns about students using AI, some schools in the US have even chose to ban its use in the classroom. The truth is, your students are already using AI or will use it at the suggestion of their peers. Instead, encourage them to use Ace, an AI that was designed for student growth. Ace emphasizes learning the process to solve a problem over handing out answers. Effectively, Ace can be the 24/7 study partner and mentor outside of school you can trust (instead of them texting classmates for last minute help).
Arizona State University is one of the first large-scale academic institutions to integrate AI throughout their systems but they certainly won’t be the last. We encourage educators everywhere to stay one step ahead with an AI designed for the classroom. Interested? Head over to Ace and try it yourself today!
