About this Research Topic
This Research Topic specifically seeks contributions using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning, the most cutting-edge technology to tackle these educational challenges in STEM education. AI is broadly defined as a technology to mimic human cognitive behaviors, and its most potent subcategory, machine learning, has been applied in assessment practices (Zhai et al., 2020a, b), demonstrating the great potential of AI in tackling the most challenging problems in STEM education (Neumann, & Waight, 2020; Zhai, 2021; Zhai, Krajcik, & Pellegrino, 2021). Articles in this research topic must identify challenges in STEM education based on literature and rigorously applied AI in tackling the challenges.
This Research Topic welcomes empirical, conceptual, and review studies. Articles published in this Research Topic must make conceptual and/or empirical contributions to our knowledge about STEM education.
Keywords: Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, STEM education, Next Generation Science Standards, knowledge-in-use
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
