Unlimited AI teachers (and why that's a good thing)

Teacher and classroom

Today on the Innovating with AI Insights members-only podcast, I'm excited to welcome Nyasha Green, a software engineer and LinkedIn Learning instructor who'll also be a regular co-host and writer for Innovating with AI in the coming months.

Today, Nyasha and I discuss the catastrophic teacher shortage and how AI tutors can help fill the gap – in fact, in a sea of stories about AI taking job opportunities, this seems like one area where we might all be happy to see AI take over more of the load.

Where are all the teachers? Breaking down America’s teacher shortage crisis in 5 charts.
Despite an increase in job openings for teachers, employment numbers have stayed largely flat since 2021, and salaries haven’t kept up.
